Re: Petra's All-star Sports Thread(para maricas que aman 'tenistos')

Okay,it's easy to see why anyone would want their hometown team to win,but it strikes me as bizarre,almost anal,that Canadian fans want ANY Canadian-based franchise to win.It might be different if you had NHL franchises in every major hockey-playing country...and only Canadians played for Canadian-based teams.However,the various Canadian franchises have a multitude of European-born players...even some AMERICANS...on their rosters....and the U.S.-based franchises have an absolute LOAD of Canadian-born players.Therefore,a Canadian franchise winning the Cup wouldn't be any reflection whatsoever on how Canadian skill matched up with other countries';we have the Olympics for THAT.I'm surprised that more sportswriters don't comment on that lunacy

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

Monica Puig, guapa campeona de tenistas latinas

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
