Hey Egypt, how’s your freedom going? Soccer riot kills 73, injuries 1000+

(Cairo)— An Egyptian soccer match between two longtime rivals descended into a violent echo of the bloodiest days of last year’s revolution as hooligans supporting the winning team stormed the field, attacking opposing players and fans in clashes that reportedly killed at least 73 people. The fighting on the pitch quickly took on broader political overtones. The Muslim Brotherhood, which controls nearly half of the new parliament, laid blame for the bloodshed on thugs connected to toppled President Hosni Mubarak who are plotting to destabilize the country. The clashes broke out in the town of Port Said after that city’s team won a rare victory over the visiting Ahly, a powerhouse club from Cairo. Port Said supporters swarmed the field immediately after the game. Ahly players and fans ran for cover beneath the stadium and into locker rooms as chaos spread.

Who had under a year? Anybody? Anybody have under a year before the “peaceful democratic revolution” would decay the Egyptian society into complete chaos?  Just another example as to why Americans should be kissing the ground every day.  This would never happen in America.  I think America is the only country in the world that doesn’t riot over sporting events.  Even nice and polite little Canada loves a good riot if one of their teams loses the Stanley Cup.  America has the rule of law.  If god forbid the Patriots lose this Sunday, I am going to be so filled with sorrow and rage that I will want to murder somebody, but thanks to American values I (probably) won’t.  Maybe its just soccer that brings out the crazies.  Luckily, people in America HATE soccer and that’s the way it should be.
