UF Quick Throw: Fletcher Shipped to Liverpool

This one is a bit tough because, well, apparently the incident was fairly horrific. Darren Fletcher was burglarized whilst he was away in Italy to play for United; and his fiancee and her mother were held at knifepoint during the incident. Not good.

No, he wasn't actually sold to Liverpool, it's just that the episode is Liverpool-esque. Even the soccernet article bothers to point out: "The raid follows a series of break-ins at the homes of Liverpool players in recent months while they have been away playing high-profile matches."

This is also the basis of the running inside UF joke of the day. We're awful people, yes. But nobody was hurt, so forgive us.

Hey, did you guys hear that Darren Fletcher got robbed?

If you value your respect for the human race, don't read the comments on that soccernet article. It is a gun rights debate and people claiming that Inter fans did it to unsettle Fletcher before the game.

English people are by and large retarded.

Georger -

Agreed. I shudder at the stuff the Brits write on places like football365 et al. Us dumb Yanks seems wildly unsophisticated to the Euros because they see so much of us on the 'telly' - from reality TV to Family Guy. The average American thinks of Hugh Grant as a representative Brit because that's all us 'Merikuns are exposed to. Following soccer from the states reveals the dumbosity of Europeans in all their Joey-Barton-meets-Spanish-monkey-chants glory. Deys juss like us!!

Reading comments on blogs is like having a front row seat for the acceleration of de-evolution.

This blog excepted, of course.

Yeah by no means did I intend to exclude my countrymen from said idiocracy. Reading through the comments on a youtube video just makes me sad. It seems the world is comprised of several billion versions of that thirteen year old English kid that knocked up that fat broad.

Speaking of...

Apparently the girl had sex with up to like 6 other boys. At least two others have admitted they are likely to be the father. The 13-year-old responds in a way that only a 13-year-old can.

Wow. Superman couldn't dodge a bullet like that kid can.

Classic, PR. Also, I think you might have found the perfect logo for a UF shirt.

Andrew said...

@phil: Perfect logo? As in the kid's comment? Because I wish I could've responded the way he did; I would've probably muttered something self-defeating.

phil said...

Yeah, Andrew, the latter part:

"F**k you all! I'll be there."

And the middle finger on the back of the hood is just pure class.
