Gosh, don't you just love football and the (sometimes) violent fanatics that support certain teams? Ugh.
I have to admit: I am embarrassed that these images are being broadcast around the world, portraying Scottish people (or rather, men) as drunk thugs! This is not true so please, dear family and friends back in Canada, do not believe that I live in a country populated by violent and barbaric troglodytes. Yes, there are pockets of some but overall, Scottish people are lovely and warm creatures with an irreverent sense of humour!
Regarding the Uefa cup final last night, I read an interesting comment on Limmy's blog. Some dude named Murphy wrote:
"I’m fuckin embarrassed anaw
answer me this though - how come the tartan army, comprising of both celtic and rangers supporters, gets comended on their good (if loud and drunken) behaviour all over the world - but in glasgow it’s fuckin high noon constantly?
eh - wits that all aboot?"Yeah, what is that all about?
