I just cant believe that we arent more hungry for it... We are just a nation of slackers...

That Van Persie goal was pretty sick, it was a two-on-five.

I am probably the only person on earth who picked Japan to advance. I am very happy if this holds up.

That was a long time ago. Now mostly we are just a bunsh of pussies, who really cant make a simple decision without the state being involved. unly once in a blue moon, waking up and remembering that we are not only free individuals but also somewhat related to the vikings of yesteryears... But that is usually out of spite and selfloathing...

In other words, Hispanic doesn't neccesarily mean you are or aren't white. Which is why I listed the number for "whites" and not Hispanics. Its a more appropriate benchmark. A larger portion of L.A., according to census data consider themselves "white".

Just to beat this dead horse back to life, I wanted to add that census info for the city of Los Angeles doesn't really address what Shell originally might have meant when referring to LA. Greater LA contains a number of smaller cities that are divided up with invisible lines and truly make up the whole of "LA." Uou should probably look at larger numbers when considering the local "diversity." I believe the city of Carson is considered the most diverse city in the nation, for instance.

1-2 to Japan. Goal by Jon Dahl Tomasson.
post #1948 of 4057
Ridiculous penalty.
post #1949 of 4057
^^ True but Denmark still needs two more goals to advance to the 1/8 finals so it shouldn't make that much of a difference...
post #1950 of 4057
