It's a f*cking desert! See this? It's sand!  And the bones on poverty-stricken workers who built this stadium!  Know what it's going to be in 100 years?  Sand!  We have deserts in America too, boyo, we just don't live and play soccer in them!

*Anyone who moved to Phoenix or Las Vegas in the last 50 years deserves to drink recycled urine.
**Also the Qatari idea of a toilet involves a hole and wiping your ass with your left hand.

Crikey, couldn't you just watch it on TV? You can't even drink beer!

Well they did only announce no alcohol two days before the tourney started, but yeah this would be a hard pass for me.

"In Qatar, it's illegal to be seen drunk in public and those who violate this could face legal consequences. According to UK government advice on traveling to Qatar, drinking in a public place could "result in a prison sentence of up to six months and/or a fine up to 3,000 Qatar Rial ($824)."

"Then two days before the first match, soccer's world governing body FIFA confirmed that no alcohol would be sold at the eight stadiums which will host the tournament's 64 matches.
Alcohol will only be served in designated fan parks and other licensed venues around Doha, FIFA said in a statement."

Like the Mayor of Vancouver Canada who refused to cancel his trip even though he was elected like last month and is missing work to go?

I don't know what they thought it would be like when they chose them. Of course, they were being bribed so they obviously didn't care.

God.   When I was stationed in Illinois, several of my AF buddies went with me to a U Ill football game in December.   They stayed about 10 minutes and realized it was cold and scrambled back to the dorms.  Unfortunately, they were my ride so I missed a good game.

People are stupid all over.   Some just have way more money than others.

I read an article the other day for some Qataris complaining that the media coverage of their country makes them look bad

Once I stopped laughing, I moved onto other things

I am really looking forward to attending a match when it's here in four years. I don't drink anymore, but I am looking forward to a true party atmosphere.

Lots of public executions. Fill the stands and sell lots of popcorn and execute many people.

The green and blue bits in the middle are where everything pees. We all drink recycled urine.
