Does that mean the pig knows how delicious it is?

/Mmmmm....precognitive bacon.

Doesn't that give Schweinsteiger some kind of unfair advantage? I guess I'll have to go with Germany for Euro2012.

Wouldn't it actually be a "hog oracle" rather than "oracle hog?"

As for the distraction from human rights violations, they would be better off doing what Israel does and show a bunch of sexy ladies in uniform.

I' no fan of Tymoshenko - she's a crooked biatch, if I ever saw one... but that pig is farked.


Speaking of farked pigs - the porky is also SALO (pork fat, Ukrainian national delicacy). I mean it even has it's own Wiki page:

Neo was the original Oracle hog.

Some of the kids even perfected the art of spoon-bending, while waiting for Neo to GTFO

She looks Russian and I can hear her annoying meaningless banter just staring at that picture. Even while she's sucking the lolly. I bet she'd stop in between sucking, just to yap about her day/friends/Macy's sale...

I have a better idea. They should just change soccer so that it doesn't suck. People would probably watch it then.

Some of the finest acting i've ever witnessed has been performed on a soccer field, and a lot of the worst too.

Lol.

Association football is the most watched sport in the world, the most successful sports team in the world is an association football team.

Rugby with tights, helmets and lots of ad breaks really just hasn't caught on over here.

/I was getting regular updates on the Slovakia vs... Russia? I think ice hockey game from my Polish friend the other day, however.

Psshh. Paul the Octopus was famous because he actually correctly predicted the results of the World Cup last year, and correctly predicted all but the final the year before that. This pig better produce results, or he'll be bacon.

iron de havilland: /I was getting regular updates on the Slovakia vs... Russia? I think ice hockey game from my Polish friend the other day, however.


Were the updates anything like:

He passed the ball to So-and-So. So-and-So passed the ball to What's-his-Name. What's-his-Name passed the ball to So-and-So. So-and-So is holding it. Holding it. So-and-So passed the ball to the other guy. He's holding it. Holding it. Faked a pass to So-and-So. So-and-So get's a kick in the shin and goes down in agony. His life is over. Penalty of some kind. So-and-So appears to have recovered from his life ending kick to the shin and is dribbling the ball down field. No wait. He's passing it to What's-his-Name. He's holding it. Holding.

Watching soccer is about as boring as watching Baseball. Both appear to have a large audience of watchers for some reason. To each his own.

No, because ice hockey has a puck, not a ball.

And I realise you're basically quoting the Simpsons there, with a dash of your own bias. If you really believe that's what a game of football is like, I don't think there's anything anyone could do that would convince you to think otherwise.

Yeah, you're convinced that football is boring, so there's really no point in trying to continue any discussion on this issue.

I would gladly sit through an NFL game, to see if it clicked with me. But the only American football game I can see is the Super Bowl, which I tuned into for a wee bit a couple of years ago. For about 10 minutes, as there was so little action in it.

I think you can get NFL games on Sky Sports here, but globally, American football is a minority sport.

Yeah, I thought you were referring to getting updates on a soccer game but not able to on a hockey game. My error.

You are correct that I am convinced that soccer is boring to watch as there is too much slacktime for me. That doesn't mean that others do not enjoy it. Perhaps it is like Baseball. I can go to a game and enjoy the experience thoroughly. It won't be from the game playing though. It will be with the whole experience of people watching, beer drinking, and overall good time being spent with friends. That is why it sux azz on TV. 3 or 4 hours of listening to the stupid stories about the sports announser's daughter's violin recital on the previous night or the stats of some player back in the 1987 season intermixed in with the endless ball 1, ball 2, foul tip, low and outside, blah blah blah. At least with American football there is a clock that forces play. I'm not a football fan either but at least I can watch it at relatives house without tearing my hair out with boredom. Hell! GOLF is more exciting to watch on TV than baseball or soccer because they are continuously showing you play by switching between players. They don't point a camera at one pair and make you watch them walking from shot to shot.
