Tony: World Cup D-Bags On Display At P&L Living Room

There’s zero reason for people in Kansas City Proper to give a damn about soccer.

Let’s forego the obvious fact that prancing around doing nothing more than kicking a ball is an unacceptable for any male over the age of 7.

No, there are very real reasons why soccer should be on the sh*t list of any Kansas City, Missouri resident. So while the dorks at the P&L District will be on centerstage as ESPN records reaction shots for all the world to see; Let’s consider some very real reasons why KCMO residents should be pissed off about World Cup Fan Fair:

1. Soccer Screwed Over Kansas City. Did we already forget that The Wizards left South Kansas City when they skipped over to KCK as part of STAR bond take away?

2. The racial aspect of soccer: Sure, people might love short brown people on TV but the P&L District still has a reputation of keeping those folks outside. Of course, there is some progress on this front but I’m still bitter.

3. Football in this town will never mean soccer. If Tea Party conservatives are to be believed, the Midwest rejects European Socialism and those big ass soccer crowds all singing the same obscure folk song represent an essential element of that culture.

For these reasons and many more.

The Soccer Dorks in the living room don’t really represent this town but mainstream media recording smiling middle-class white people celebrating and ignoring everything else about Kansas City is the same old game that has always been played.

    great post tony. shows your IQ has moved up..
    to 48.
    Another worthless piece of crap writing.
    It’s amazing that you actually get paid to
    write this shit.
    Ever see the blacks playing soccer? They’re
    from kenya/ghana/south africa.
    Notice the huge number of black spectators?
    Wow…kind of cool to see all the people of
    different races involved in a sport without
    regard to race/color or creed.
    Wow…Tony you are one big piece of shit.

    Christ, Tony, what are, 80 years old? You write with all the mirth and joy of an incontinent octogenarian who discovered the neighborhood kids on his front lawn. Go ahead. Shake your fist at those having fun. You’ll show ’em, ace!

    Look, I’m no huge soccer fan, but when the opportunity comes to watch the sport at its absolute best, I can’t pass it up. Maybe I’m a sucker, but I love the fanfare, the ritual, the passion and energy of fans and players alike, the sportsmanship, and a televised event not interrupted by a commercial every three minutes. And seeing Italy and France go home early is just the icing on the cake.

    If that’s not your thing, fine. Free country and all (even if some of your reasons for knocking soccer are about as original as a decade-old recording of the Jim Rome show). But to crap on the event and those who enjoy it, well, it tells me that you don’t just get the World Cup, but also sports in general.

    Any rational human being will tell you that sports are just a diversion. There are wars, environmental disasters, crises, famine, disease and death. This things will be with us always. Compared to them, any sport is trivial and frivolous. But you know what? So are a lot of other things — music, television, literature, movies, art. How could we enjoy any of that when there’s so much wrong with the world? Why pay $10 to see a movie when that could help a starving child?

    You know why? Because we’re human, and to deal with the weight of the world’s crap, we need the occasional diversion. And sports fits the bill rather nicely.

    So, relax, and let people have their fun. It’s not hurting you. Ass.

    Jesus Christ Tony, you are such a butt-hurt misanthrope. Why do you interpret all the bad fortune that befalls KC MO as a personal transgression against you and the people of the city? Because as far as I can tell you A.) Don’t give a fuck about soccer anyway and B.) don’t like the city that much either. So why do you give two shits if the Wizards move to KCK? People in Kansas actually fucking like soccer, so get over it and go watch a cock fight or something.

    And why are you bitter about the P&L thing again? Everybody ,regardless of their shade of brown, was allowed in the district in the first place. They just weren’t allowed to wear tee shirts that hung down to their knee caps, sports jerseys, and gang colors. What’s wrong with having a dress code in the name of classing things up a little bit? And why should you care anyway? You can’t afford the 9 dollar beers there on the 26 bucks a week kcconfidential is paying you. Get lost.

    Wow, I thought we lived in a METRO. I live in OP so I’m not allowed to call the teams in KCMO MINE? Go to hell Tony, if I wish to make the Royals, Chiefs, Wizards, or what-ever-the-hell the pro tennis team in KCMO is called MINE, I will. I refuse to live in your vaccuum. What a miserable little man you really must be.

    Ditto the comments above. I get that your M.O. is to be contrarian about everything to generate page views but your shit doesn’t even make sense. I’m laughing at you buddy. Sad really.

    KCMO bungled the wizards deal so badly that the team had to come up with other options, and that was KCK.

    KCMO has no one to blame. In fact, KCMO has been way behind soccer’s popularity. OPKC built the youth complex too.

    But at least KCMO got suckered into spending half a BILLION dollars on the two crap teams and their stadiums at the Truman Sports Complex.

    BTW: The Wizards has a league title and another title game appearance in the last decade. How have the Royals and Chiefs done in that department?

    I am thinking Tony is scorned by an ex boyfriend who was quite the strapping young striker who would pound it into Tony’s net for all 90 minutes…but is no more.

    So because Tony can’t have his boy toy anymore he writes nonsense about a tournament and sport that has done quite a bit to unify the rest of the nation as of late.

    I’ll be one of those ‘d-bags’ down there tomorrow I’ll be on the look out for you. Maybe you can address the entire lot of us losers and make yourself feel better about being such a negative creep?

    Stupid story. Only thing worse than soccer fans going crazy every four years is stupid writers getting on a soapbox and trying to convince those soccer fans that their sport is stupid.

    It’s been done. Too many times. Give it up and come up with an original idea.

    Gotta give you credit, Tony; you got comment count up, although I’m not sure that every single one — repeat: every single one — considers you pondscum. That type of universal scorn is hard to achieve, but by elevating the level of offensiveness and narrow-mindedness in your latest blog post, you have accomplished something even Pork Chop — with his legion of detractors — has come up short on doing.

    You don’t like soccer, fine. Does it make you feel superior to belittle those who do? Sorry, elevation by detraction fails to win respect, or even sympathy.
