    What are you talking about? I know a lot of people here in the States who like Hockey. :confused:

    Now SOCCER is obscure here, but hopefully thats going to change in the next few years. Its a hell of a lot better than American football.

    I saw a list a couple of years ago listing sports in order of popularity in the US and Hockey was one place ahead of tractor pulling. The most popular sport was college football.

    Here's a sample list.

    People hide behind racism. If someone doesn't get a job, maybe it means they were less qualified than a white applicant. If someone is arrested, maybe it was because they were doing something illegal. I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, because it does. However, it is not root cause for anything bad that happens to someone of a different race.

    Barry Bonds is being hated on because he's a jerk. McGwire would be under the same scrutiny if he were still playing, especially if he handled media and fans as poorly as Bonds does.

    McGwire got off pretty clean since he left the game before this new explosion of steroid questioning. Palmeiro got his booed into retirement.

    I just dislike him because of his actions. Nothing to do with his race.

    Both Sosa and McGwire got off easy, because they were early in the controversy. Had McGwire or Sosa still been playing, they'd be just as disrespected as Bonds.
