    eh whenever i told people i was american on vacation, shit helped me get mad play, women automatically assumed i was ballin in cash, and i got quite a few stamps on my passport, so <shrug>.

    a lot of conversations ive had with people, particularly in moscow, manilla, and york, they did expect most americans to be douchebags, but i never had a problem making any friends of foreign descent so it was all fun

    every country has a stereotype you can slap onto it, there's always gonna be MILLIONS of people that FIT that stereotype and prove it right because they lack individuality

    and there';s always gonna be THOUSANDS of people that BREAK the stereotypes

    Lmao. Right.. let me demolish this dude.

    If your talking in terms of the U.K, which I'm guessing. Our greatest athletes? Okay imma name a few.

    Paula Radcliffe - Womens marathon record holder, widely regarded as the greatest female long distance runner ever.

    Sir Steve Redgrave - 5 Olympic gold medals over a 20 year period.

    Lewis Hamilton/Jenson Button - won last 3 F1 championships. Britain currently leads any other country in worldwide motor racing.

    George Best - Regarded as the greatest footballer since Pele.

    Fred Perry - Eight Time grand slam winner.

    Ian Botham - Holds numerous records in cricket for bowling and batting.


    Yeah were not exactly shit.


    Nobody plays basketball in our country. Were third favourites for the world cup in 'soccer' and in Cricket we won the WORLD CUP, literally like 3 weeks ago lol.

    And who gives a shit about winter olympics? We dont have mountains, or winter alpine regions so essentially its like saying why hasnt portugal or greece won any winter olympic golds. We came 4th in the last olympic medal table and for a country of only 60 million, that means we dicked on you population to medal ratio wise.

    Of course america has better known sportstars, you have so much more money to train them than we do, a bigger media, a more global reach. And yet were still going to dick on you at the worlds biggest sport. Sorry.


    P.S LMAO at BinoSWI getting called out on ignorance like 5 times hahah, when i said 'I know its stereotypical' i meant myself, I did get that it was sarcasm, dont worry haha. I feel your pain bro.

    Soccer was invented by European ladies to occupy their time while their husbands washed the dishes.

    lol i hate getting into this sorta thing but.

    Weve never been invaded since the british army was formed.

    We have the best train fighting force in the world. We constantly lose a less ratio of than america does when we fight in the same wars.

    And anyway, what does football have to do with fighting?

    I am Canadian and I don't hate America. Ive had a lot of great times there and I have friends there. A lot of Americans are fuckin stupid, but so are a lot of Canadians. And I think the intelligence of the Brits goes without saying.... Go to Las Vegas, there's no way u can hate America.

    I was just joking.

    I've been an avid football (American) fan my entire life, and have difficulty getting into soccer. But I've actually really been looking forward to this World Cup for some time now. In particular, obviously this game tomorrow.

    The whole hype surrounding it and everything is really dope, and right now on 42nd st. they've got these crazy ass paintings representing each country covering the outside of this building. I'm sure a lot of you have seen them:

    ESPN?s 2010 FIFA World Cup Murals For 32 Nations | Prose Before Hos

    But I gotta be honest, sometimes watching the shit is just too boring for me, lol.
