- I'm a fanatic FOOTBALL fan
- Boycotts apparently work
For years and years we had to suffer the humilation of having our most beloved sport called a name other than it's own. Every day we had to endure hearing that stupid term, without responding back, added to our misery. We were shut-up, and silenced by America's greedy corporate machines.
But, it's over. The silence is over. The humulation is over.
Today, we're inspired by the Maradonnas, Peles, and Ronaldos of the world. Today we end the wait. Today we break the silence. Today we say it:
We'll be posting here a list of ALL American products for you to boycott.
Today we redeem the honors of Wembley, Old Trafford, Camp Nou, Maracana, Cairo Int'l, and Aztec. We won't stop until the Yanks cut the crap, and give us back the name of our game. Football is a real sport, and not a game you have to wear a jock strap for!

May the ball be with you!
update #1: Preparing the list of ALL American products is taking more time than I imagined. Here are some IT related for starters: Internet, Intel Processors, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office(can you imagine that?, it is American!), OS X, Google.com, Blogger.com (uh, oh!)...update you again in a while...keep the revolution alive!
update #2: Well, it turns out that blogger.com isn't really American, you see Sergey Brin isn't really American, so we're in the clear comrades! Anyways, here is the hourly instalment of Yankee-trash: KFC, Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Hardees ( :( ), Pepsi, Coke (yeah, yeah, handover the can kid!), nike (gimme my 3 stripes!), and Durex!(Is it? let me check...ah...it is...sorry!)...keep on dribbling!
update #3: While we are at it: what's up with this World Series thing? We are the world, we've never been invited! Why do you call a game where two teams across town from each other play World Series?! Stop that! or else we'll carry on with the boycott!
update #4: All football fans should recite the following pledge before each game: "I Swear on this amazing game I shall no longer refer to it as Soccer. Football it is all the way!!" Thanks Neil
