  2. That is kind of a conundrum for the Globalists, isn’t it, Steve? They want us all to like soccer (which sucks cause they throw flags if you catch and throw the ball, WTF?), yet soccer fans are the most Nationalist crowds around. They are the kind to also go out to “Free Tommy” (Robinson) rallies.

    Maybe they should promote Ultimate Frisbee to the masses. I hate to say it, but most of those players are pretty left-wing and would go for the Globalist stupidity.

    I guess it does make one very jealous to see a united country like Iceland. What language do they speak over there, Iceish?

    Well, we’ll always have baseball. To me it’s an all-American pastime.

    They speak Icelandic which is for whatever reason similar to Old English. They're descended from Norwegians as well as purportedly various British populations, mostly women they captured from coastal areas in the 10th century when they started settling in Iceland.

    That's nothing. Just try pulling out a handgun. Not that there's anywhere to hide it on a soccer uniform. But those Euroweenies will give you more than a red card.

    I always wanted to see a hockey player answer a punch by pulling out a concealed weapon. Not in Toronto or MSG, mind you, but perhaps Dallas, Phoenix, or Tampa.

    It’s not some indigenous “Viking war chant”. It was picked up 4 years ago and copied from a Scottish club team’s fans.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/07/08/revealed-the-origin-of-icelands-viking-thunderclap-celebration/

    The celebration has been described as a ‘Viking war chant,’ and most people assume the song comes from an ancient pre-battle ritual.

    However, according to Icelandic publication Morgunbladid, the song was adopted by Icelandic club Stjarnan on a trip to Scottish side, Motherwell.

    Fans of the Reykjavik-based side were first introduced to the terrifying terrace chant in a Europa League game with Scottish Premier League side, Motherwell.Motherwell’s slow-cap then evolves into the club’s trademark song, ‘Since I Was Young.’

    The Viking Klapp started with a smaller local team, Stjarnan FC, and was adopted by the national team but the story of the Klapp has an unexpected twist.

    The Stjarnan team heard the chant done by a Polish handball team – yup, handball – and decided to adapt it to fit.

    The legend has the chant used for rowing by the Vikings, to keep them rowing in sync and help them row faster and faster.

    But even Styrmir Gislason, the head of the Association of Icelandic Football Fans, has admitted in an interview with Danish newspaper “Jyllands Posten” that he and his colleagues were looking for a distinct chant, “and we found it among Polish handball fans”.

    Entirely appropriate, too. Icelanders are about 25% Celtic. The original settlers picked up some Irish chicks along the way. That's called "stopping for provisions".

    Yet more proof for my long made assertion: if you must watch Pro soccer, turn off the English Premier League and turn on Scottish Premiership. In addition to Motherwell, you get Celtic, Rangers, Hibernian, Dundee, Dundee United, Aberdeen, Heart of Midlothian, Kilmarnock, Partick Thistle, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, St. Johnstone, St. Mirren, and others moving up and down.

    The World Cup invariably turns into the Euro Cup; at the semi-final stage, teams are only ever literal Euro or filial Euro. African teams have never made it to the semis because they're badly organised and fold under stress, and Asian teams don't make it because they lack the spontaneous creativity (South Korea only got to the semis at the 2002 WC due to the very obviously crooked referees).

    So that reminds me of a story. A few years when I was visiting Reykjavik and I rented a bicycle. An excellent way to get around that city. Like so many others I fell in love with the place for several reasons. They are a very sporting people and despite the northern latitude they embrace two of my favorites, swimming and bicycling. For a town of a little over 200,000 the Laugardalslaug swimming complex is unbelievable and it's just one of many public swimming pools in town. I guess having an unlimited supply of hot water helps. Anyway I digress, I was filling out my name and information on the bicycle rental form, my real name ends in "sen" The women behind the desk ask's me where I'm from and I respond the USA, she's says that's not want she meant as she was asking about the origins of my last name. I explain my ancestors came from the low countries, modern day Denmark, Holland, Germany etc. She smiled and looked me straight in the eye and said "so you have a little bit of the Viking in you" One of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me :-)

  8. Icelanders must have some great genes for strength, given their competitiveness in strongman events from such a tiny country. I am surprised that they did well enough in soccer to tie Argentina. Strength is not really a key soccer attribute.

    Probably you would be also very upset if somebody told you that the turkeys eaten by Pilgrims were not native to the US but were a reimport from Europe via Mexico, Spain and England.

    The early American colonists, who grew up eating this “turkey” in Europe, found similar-looking birds in their new environs, a North American wild version known as meleagris Americana. But these wild birds didn’t take well to being domesticated—whereas the Mexican variety had already been bred for eating in Europe and was reimported back to the North American continent under the name “turkey.”

    Iceland is a special case because probably literally every Icelandic person either knows someone on the team or knows someone who knows someone on the team. Perhaps the people out in the boonies are another degree of separation out.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/20/arts/design/cruising-pavilion-venice-architecture-biennale-.html

    In the main space of the so-called Cruising Pavilion — an exhibition devoted to the places and practices of casual sex — sheets of plywood were pierced by a profusion of glory holes, a hallmark of anonymous gay hookups.

    A dapple of scarlet lamplight shone through the holes, giving the space the ambience of an illicit cathedral. The floor was littered with colorful condoms and other sexual accouterments.

    The Venice Architecture Biennale includes a Cruising Pavilion to which the NY Times compares its numerous glory holes and discarded used condoms to a “cathedral”.

    On the opening night, poppers — inhalants sometimes huffed during sex for a quick high — were passed around like hors d’oeuvres, and a D.J. played heavy beats for a fashionably-dressed crowd dancing in the balmy air.

    They really don’t know when to stop, do they?

    The Viking Klapp started with a smaller local team, Stjarnan FC, and was adopted by the national team but the story of the Klapp has an unexpected twist.

    The Stjarnan team heard the chant done by a Polish handball team – yup, handball – and decided to adapt it to fit.

    The legend has the chant used for rowing by the Vikings, to keep them rowing in sync and help them row faster and faster.

    But even Styrmir Gislason, the head of the Association of Icelandic Football Fans, has admitted in an interview with Danish newspaper “Jyllands Posten” that he and his colleagues were looking for a distinct chant, “and we found it among Polish handball fans”.

    Probably you would be also very upset if somebody told you that the turkeys eaten by Pilgrims were not native to the US but were a reimport from Europe via Mexico, Spain and England.

    https://qz.com/845107/the-history-of-thanksgiving-many-americans-dont-realize-their-turkey-filled-holiday-is-courtesy-of-globalization/
    The early American colonists, who grew up eating this “turkey” in Europe, found similar-looking birds in their new environs, a North American wild version known as meleagris Americana. But these wild birds didn’t take well to being domesticated—whereas the Mexican variety had already been bred for eating in Europe and was reimported back to the North American continent under the name “turkey.”

  44. These articles are funny because the authors ultimately don’t seem to understand that US, soccer is a middle-class and up sport but in most (But by all means, not all) of the world it is a working class sport. So soccer in the US has a connotation of internationalism since it’s a relatively new ‘foreign’ game and political posturing. (Spike Lee can make a political statement by following the Premiere League despite those teams being founded and primarily supported by people he’d likely give less than humanising dialogue to in his films)

    This is part of the reason that US soccer fans are so despised at tournaments, they’re often late in life adopters who are crass and annoying and have nothing in common with other supporters.

    Similar to how Rugby is an upper class game in Britain but a decidedly lower class affair in Australia.

    By not understanding this intuitively or logically American journalists once again actually demonstrate their parochialness as they do on a regular basis.

    Part of the reason US soccer fans and the like are so ‘Progressive’ is that they are middle class hipster whites. They’ll never admit this or understand this, however.

    It's not some indigenous "Viking war chant". It was picked up 4 years ago and copied from a Scottish club team's fans.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/07/08/revealed-the-origin-of-icelands-viking-thunderclap-celebration/

    The celebration has been described as a 'Viking war chant,' and most people assume the song comes from an ancient pre-battle ritual.

    However, according to Icelandic publication Morgunbladid, the song was adopted by Icelandic club Stjarnan on a trip to Scottish side, Motherwell.

    Fans of the Reykjavik-based side were first introduced to the terrifying terrace chant in a Europa League game with Scottish Premier League side, Motherwell.Motherwell's slow-cap then evolves into the club's trademark song, 'Since I Was Young.'
     

    Yet more proof for my long made assertion: if you must watch Pro soccer, turn off the English Premier League and turn on Scottish Premiership. In addition to Motherwell, you get Celtic, Rangers, Hibernian, Dundee, Dundee United, Aberdeen, Heart of Midlothian, Kilmarnock, Partick Thistle, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, St. Johnstone, St. Mirren, and others moving up and down.

  56. @It's All Ball Bearings
    an "all-American pastime" played by "Latin" Americans. went to a Phillies-Tigers game a few years back and counted 13 Venezuelans on the two rosters.

    soccer isn't looking too bad this year, what with it shaping up to be the Euro Cup + a few nations outside of Europe moving on to the knockout rounds. my very hyper-ethnocentric daughter has her rooting interests in her genetic countries of origin: Belgium, France, Iceland, Denmark, Germany and Poland. We missed out on Netherlands, but oh well.

    The World Cup invariably turns into the Euro Cup; at the semi-final stage, teams are only ever literal Euro or filial Euro. African teams have never made it to the semis because they’re badly organised and fold under stress, and Asian teams don’t make it because they lack the spontaneous creativity (South Korea only got to the semis at the 2002 WC due to the very obviously crooked referees).

    Subject: Dispensing of Medication by Departments

    It has been a custom in some department for several years to stock so-called "green pills" and dispense them as they are requested by reporting people for minor symptoms of colds, headaches, etc. These pills contain an aspirin-like drug and caffeine. These pills were procured directly by the departments from Western Electric. Recently Western Electric has discontinued the handling of this substance, hence, there have been inquiries to the Medical Department regarding the procurement.

    It should be pointed out that while the Medical Department has never endorsed the handling of medications by the departments, about 18 months ago this practice was part of an extremely biased article in the "Mother Jones" magazine.

    The handling of these medications should cease and the procurement, purchase and_ administration of any medication should be strictly a personal problem to be addressed by the individual employee.

Like so many others I fell in love with the place for several reasons. They are a very sporting people and despite the northern latitude they embrace two of my favorites, swimming and bicycling. For a town of a little over 200,000 the Laugardalslaug swimming complex is unbelievable and it’s just one of many public swimming pools in town. I guess having an unlimited supply of hot water helps. Anyway I digress, I was filling out my name and information on the bicycle rental form, my real name ends in “sen” The women behind the desk ask’s me where I’m from and I respond the USA, she’s says that’s not want she meant as she was asking about the origins of my last name.
