Say it isn’t so!
The USSR has asked FIFA to ban the United States from participation in the World Cup…
And there could be ten’s of Americans Who might be Very Upset! Okay… I exaggerate, but this is Big! Dang, I did it again… sorry.
If you’ve read this Distraction of a blog since the beginning you might remember I consider Soccer to be a Cult and those Parents, and children, who get sucked into it need to be Kidnapped and Deprogrammed before being returned to Civilized Society. (There are people who do this…)
But that’s beside the Point… if there’s a Point.
In Fact, I happen to know the KGB/FSB/SVR/DHS realize that no one, of any significance, living in the U.S. would notice let alone care. So what this amounts to is Putin being Funny… and he IS Funny… What do you think the whole Topless Dictator thing was? Hilarious!
Anyway, considering the level of Disdain the Majority of the World’s Despots possess regarding all things American I would not be surprised if the Ban is put into effect… Although I’m not sure I’ll ever know, because I have American things to do and already belong to a Cult. A really Cool One. You can’t join.
