We're Not Above Stealing Images from Deadspin



While we agree with the sentiment, we don't need to stoop to the level of the Mexicans. Oh wait, we didn't throw urine bombs on the pitch.

By the way, not sure if anybody remembers this, but after the US v. Mexico World Cup match in 2002, the ABC cameras caught this great shot of a fat and unhappy Mexican in his El Tri kit and oversized sombrero. It was maybe the funniest thing I've ever seen on TV after this and the Christopher Guest / Martin Short Men's Synchronized Swimming short, which apparently the YouTubes doesn't allow. Anyway, if anyone can turn up a a pic of that Mexico fan I'd be indebted to you forever.

So did you guys get kicked off Deadspin or something? While I maaaay have disagreed with your points sometimes, I loved reading the stuff over there. Did the 'soc-cer?' retards prevail?

/awkward

On a thread related note, I saw a shot of the game where a chick was holding a scarf which said 'US NATIONAL TEAM', and I just thought that was the most whitebread soccer fandom possible.

Notice there are far fewer contributors over at DS now.

That should be a good clue.

It's because we're black, isn't it.

If by black you mean lily-white, then yes.

Have no problems with Deadspin whatsoever. Even after getting the sack more or less.

Just thought the pic was worth having as I totally noticed that guy after the game as well. Plus it gave me an excuse to link to the Mr. Show Jeepers Creepers sketch. That said, I think DS was better before it was all Erin Andrews all the time. So an above average looking girl is a sideline reporter. Big fucking deal.

@PR: I didn't realize you guys were contributors to DS.

The pic is great, although it would've been more apropos for Hejduk to throw it around while screaming "Fuck yeah!"

I had a brief stint following up Hirshey as the Closer. It didn't really go to well.

Too many bears wandering around?

PR you getting the sack was total bullshit. kogod has even toned his football coveragre down on weekends. DS used to be a dope place but i feel in the last 7 mo's the mouthbreathers have taken over. you're columns were quite good even if arsenal biased (like i care i'm a gooner myself) but that site has truly devolved from the high quality it used to be
