Just saw an article: What is driving Wales' stunning Euro 2016 success? What do they have that other teams don't?
Isn't it obvious - they have sheep!!!
It is truly remarkable. A team didn't even qualified for nothing sine 1962 (44 years!)...
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
Well, Kornfeld, I must say "baa" to the idea that the secret of the current Welsh soccer renaissance lays with in their sheep.
I think it's poetry; did you know that there has been an annual poetry/bard contest in Wales since the 12th. century (A.D. in the Christian calendar) ? [^].
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
England has sheep (the UK as a whole is the 8th most sheep populous country in the world) and it didn't do them much good. I think ewe is trying to ram in a bit of wooly thinking there.
The reason for Wales' success is much simpler. They've hit upon this weird and exotic tactic of scoring goals - too old school for all those modern coaches in other countries but there you go! Highest scorers in the tournament and the only team averaging 2 per game.
I suggest you Google for "living conditions in Gaza" and start reading before you spew another ignorant talking point.
You have no idea what the Gaza Strip really is and what Israel has done to it. It's now nothing more than a bombed out and nearly uninhabitable prison for almost two million people with nothing left to lose.
No, it's not. This is yet another ignorant bullshit talking point on your part.
I am not and never have been an anti-Semite. Just because I don't agree with what Israel is doing in no way means I'm an anti-Semite. Just because I don't agree with what Hamas and the Palestinians are doing in no way means I hate them either.
What I do believe is that they BOTH need to put the weapons down and never pick them up again and start talking to each other and start helping solve the problems, immediately.
So, what happened to the Jewish people in WWII completely justifies them annihilating the Palestinians at a casualty rate of nearly 7 to 1?
I didn't say disarm. I said lay them down. I should have been more clear and stated that they should never pickup arms against each other. Nothing will come of it other than more needless, pointless death.
They are Islamic terrorists because that's what they say they are. They've even made a good case for it, invoking scripture about vanguards and apocalypses and an Islamic Utopia that comes after. We didn't brand them, they asked for it.
