Hey that's kind of ironic, 'cause in high school, I was the kid that the other players would knock down on a wet football field and poop on as the coaches deliberately turned their backs!

Okay, not really, but they used to roll me down the hill after gym class. Alas!

Dog "Mess"?

Crazy Brits!

Much to the surprise of the refs, the crap on the field was in fact the players themselves. Realizing soccer is a stupid sport, the refs canceled this and all further games.

Crazyfloyd99:They rolled you down a hill? WTF. I'm sorry but I am laughing my ass off.
2003-02-07 01:06:57 PM  
Well, Kind of... see in high school, I was the big fat ass kid

[okay let me clarify something - there are two types of big fat ass kids in high school: a) sloppy, sweaty, licey, dandruff ridden idots who may or may not qualify for placement in the special ed classes and b) intellectual, preppier, kids who usually need to be the center of attention... I was the second... unfortunately, when wearing sweats all fat kids look the same]

who wanted everyone to like him. I often did self depricating things, such as roll down a hill after gym class. Well, eventually, I didn't want to do it any more, but bullies would make me every time. Thinking back, it must of been pretty funny looking, but c'est la vie.

Anyway, so I lost weight in college, started getting chicks, got a fantastic job and got engaged to a beautiful angel of a girl and then- got fat again. Oh well.

Sorry for rambling.

Such a beautiful gentlemanly game of soccer.........FOR ME TO POOP ON. Triumph ensues.

"Excuse me, but you seem to have a little dog poopie on your shoes..."

2003-02-07 01:47:34 PM  
Ok, who fed the dog Exlax and set it loose on the field?
2003-02-07 01:47:37 PM  
I am...in a world...of shiat!
2003-02-07 01:47:41 PM  
Somebody biatched a pitch.
2003-02-07 01:49:32 PM  
if I was a field, I would rather have dog poop on me than soccer players.
2003-02-07 01:49:34 PM  
This crap will not be tolerated.

Hey, fat boy!

Roll down the hill!!

Har Har!!
2003-02-07 01:49:47 PM  
...or a piatch.
2003-02-07 01:50:23 PM  
So the Big Brown got a Red Card ?
This is a non story, because soccer is a shiatty sport anyways. It's funny cause it's true !
2003-02-07 01:50:56 PM  
Pile up a big pile of dog poo, and what do you have? An american "football" player! Hahaha.
2003-02-07 01:52:01 PM  
I'd think that the shiat on the field would make the game more interesting. Kinda like when it's a muddy field. They must not be hardcore soccer players.

You would rather have dog poop on you than soccoer players or you would rather have dog poop on than soccer players poop?

Fark needs to know...
2003-02-07 01:52:53 PM  
Soccer?....Dog Poo?....so, what's the difference?
2003-02-07 01:53:01 PM  
I used to play soccer as a kid.. and have fond memories of dog poo + cleats.
2003-02-07 01:54:19 PM  
Hard tackle...That's a booking. Kick in the groin...That's a booking. Dog shiat strategically place around field to liven up obvious ass whoopin'...That's a booking.
2003-02-07 01:54:20 PM  
im sensing an icehockey octopussesque, soccer dog poop thing coming along

Hey dog owners--clean up your dog's shiat, you spoiled little brats.

How do they no it was dog shiat? They have it analyzed?
2003-02-07 01:55:43 PM  
I hate irresponsible dog owners. In our last rental house before we bought the one we now own, our freaking neighbors across the street would actually walk their dog down their LONG driveway, right past their GIANT YARD and cross the street so it shiat in our SMALL yard.

I left them a note to stop doing it, but they wouldn't. They wouldn't pick it up, either.

So I collected it all and put it in their mailbox.

Then every morning, as soon as they came out with their dog, I'd take my two german shepherds out on a leash and stand in their front yard and wait till my dogs shiat. My pups are very well trained and generally happy to crap on command.

Large piles of german shepherd poo don't go away as fast as little terrier poos. Eventually I had filled the yard and had to start having the pups crap on their driveway.

Much fun.

Eventually they realized that without getting more dogs, they would lose this arms race, and they stopped bringing their dog over to crap on my yard.

Hey! It's called a toothpick! Figure it out!

Banana: As an American, I find that very offensive! Just because we armor-up child molestors and wife beaters/murderers and then pay them 5 million dollars a year doesn't make it okay to mock them.

Or something.

Back to the terror alert thread.

bbq-breath, both are true statements.

"Poop on the field!"!
2003-02-07 02:03:56 PM  
They went on to trounce their opponents 7-1.

British headline " The visiting team got the shiat beat out of them."

Those whacky Brits.....

NaTaX: I've never met you, but I like you. :) If you're ever in Toronto, I'm buying you a beer.

I think it's perfectly reasonable to rub the dog owner's face in it, when they don't clean up after their dog.

all i could think of was "i'd hate to be the goal tender"

imagine a poo-encrusted soccer ball coming at you. now catch it. ball stops - poo doesn't. poo splatter all over goalie.

2003-02-07 02:11:38 PM  
I wonder what kind of flag you throw for THAT?

Soccer is the worlds most popular sport...so there goes your theory of IT sucking...shiatface!
2003-02-07 02:18:42 PM  
You know, I've had many northerner's offer to buy me a beer, but never a southerner. I live in the south (central NC) now, but was living in the north for 8 years before coming down here. Maybe I'm still all angsty from it. Around here folks seem to just shiat on each other (no pun intended) and the people just take it and shiat on someone else. No one gets even or exacts non-violent but heavily annoying/disgusting revenge around here.

They'll learn soon enough, though.

Thanks for the compliment.
2003-02-07 02:21:23 PM  
Technically, the poop didn't make the game "unplayable," but it did make it "potentially stinky."
2003-02-07 02:27:06 PM  
I think watching dogs crap is more entertaining than soccer
2003-02-07 02:30:31 PM  
7-1? how do you score one point in football?

oh ya, its the shiatty kind of football
2003-02-07 02:35:27 PM  
For those of you who dislike soccer:

Is it because you can't play it?


Is it because you don't understand it?
2003-02-07 02:45:25 PM  
"Is it because you can't play it?

Don't want to play it. Requires a large field and two nets as well as quite a few players. The rules are stupid and you need refs.


"Is it because you don't understand it?

What's to understand? Kick the ball in the net. For such a "great" game there sure is a lack of excitement. Waiting for you Brits to talk about the pads.
