    Look at this goal my boys scored the other night. Dominated possession for over a minute with a full team effort and then a special, special finish

    took me awhile to realize that wasn’t a power play.

    Too bad Orlov couldn’t get an assist for keeping the puck from being cleared about a minute before the goal.

    Boca Juniors is shown as leftist/proletariat, and River Plate as rightist/elitist.

    No idea how they came up with this, but it sounds about right.

    Unless I missed one, there are 4 MLS clubs in that graph and they’re all in the upper left quadrant

    The Galaxy is leftist in the same way that the Nazis were socialists.

    They should have added NYCFC to this. They are alleged to have some ties to conservatism thru their SGs.

    Section 26
    Do you understand, AT ALL, the flow of the Colorado river? No, you don’t. Hardly any water from the Colorado is diverted for other use in Utah. Are you an idiot who thinks the Colorado feeds the Great Salt Lake or any city of reasonable size in Utah? If so, you are an idiot. You idiot.

    He’s on a roll.

    He was 0 for 3 on that rant; the stereotype about Mormons is polygamy not incest.

    Now, now. Be nice, or Joseph Smith will judge you one day.

    That said, nowhere did anyone other than you mention the Great Salt Lake. And no one other than you mentioned any city in child rapeistan, other than you.

    But, looking at this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_River_Compact#Provisions

    And this: https://dailyutahchronicle.com/2023/02/06/utah-colorado-river/#:~:text=Two-thirds of the Colorado,irrigate alfalfa fields, KUER reports.

    Feel free to continue to call others "idiots," even as your state uses the river to export alfalfa abroad. In effect, exporting alfalfa abroad is exporting that water abroad. Yay.

    The Coyotes should have never left Winnipeg. Shame RIM collapsed. I really liked the idea of Waterloo getting a team.

    They were the original elite MLS team. Inter is the second. They were given the opportunity to buy Beckham, just as Inter is being given the opportunity to wreck the league by putting together a Europe-worthy team in an otherwise capped cartel.

    Most of the teams that have won the Cup since 2018 or so are loaded with talent that should be somewhere in Europe, but took the easy way out to win hardware. Lodeiro. Ruidiaz. Zelarayan. Moralez. Tinnerholm. Sean Johnson.

    So what?

    There are Catholics in Mozambique, too. But just as the "OG" Catholics are in Europe, so too is the cultural heart of Mormons in Utah.

    Nope.

    If we're gonna allow mockery of one faith, such as mocking Catholics for having some molesty clergy, we can't be obtuse and not mock others. Like the very real history of LDS, and the continued existence of FLDS in that part of the world.

    FFS, if they're gonna keep Brigham Yoing's many houses as a memorial to child brides, polygamy, and inbreeding in SLC, they've earned every bit of mockery they get. (At least the Catholics don't have a memorial standing to molesty clergy, yet we still mockery them.)
