The English and their FIFA bid loss

What can I say? Well, at the expense of making humungously broad generations:

1.  For the English man who humiliated me as I applied for a visa with his, "What is that?  Your parent's bank account is it? Why that's a paltry sum of money it is!  You want make it through this application process you won't!' -----I say Yippee!  Now you know what it feels like when the 'big guns' look down their nose at you and say NO, You're not good enough yet this time!

2.  For my friends who were denied entry because:  'Where did they get so much money?  There's something funny about this?  They can't possible have such money, they won't make it into here, they won't.'  -----Here's to your money spent England! Now you know what it feels like to try your best and be swatted away like an annoying tropical fly.

3.  But to the nice immigration guy at Heathrow who let me in to customs briefly to give my sister the peanut butter she was craving when she was pregnant (and I was in transit to PA), for nice English folks like you I agree that there need to be reforms in the FIFA bidding process.

At the end of the day though, don't you think all countries who make it as far as bidding should be given a chance to host, particularly if they were sidelined for being 'ideological sinners' in the past (and for some in the present who still believe communism, religious governments etc. make some lesser states than others).. It's a game, football is a game and people should be able to host despite their ideological leanings don't you think? After all,  ha ha ha! songs such as 'when I get older...I will be stronger...they'll call me freedom just like a waving flag!' can be sang EVERYWHERE with a nice cold Coke       :-)
