As as junior high school teacher, I think that drafting able-bodied 13 and 14 year olds and putting them for a year or two into the fields as emergency laborers would be a great idea.

I assume you have tried teaching high school? Middle school kids are so much better! Draft the high school kids.

How I hate diving ... Sterling nominated to be included by the legendary greats!

Die legendärsten Schwalben der Fußball-Geschichte mit Sterling, Neymar, Robben.

The list should included West-German greats from the 1970s ... in World Cup 1974 final "Hollzenbein's schwalbe".

Not watching ... but following 120 minutes of football ... nothing spectacular ... ends 1-1 and a penalty shootouts. Could as well have agreed two hours ago. Waiting for an defensive error ... not much of an attacking game. Once Italy scored the equalizer .. the side performed what it does best ... kill the game. A throw of the dice. 😎💪🏼

PM Boris Johnson just like his "hero" Trump refuses to own up to it ... abuse will only spread! A dark day of what should have been a wonderful sports match.

Well you can watch the US baseball All Stars game this week instead! Even if only because it is being held in Denver after Major League Baseball moved it from Atlanta in response to new additional unconstitutional voting restrictions. Tough situation when 1/3 of your players are minorities.

England Taking the Knee Criticism after Tie 0-0 Scotland

Tory MP to boycott England games in row over taking the knee | The Guardian |

Anderson said the FA and England team had made "a big mistake" and "now run the risk of becoming like the Labour party and that is having nothing in common with their traditional supporters".

"All forms of racism are vile and should be stamped out - but this is not the way," he added.

Here's how Tory MP Lee Anderson's Euro 2020 boycott over England taking the knee is going

Hooliganism and Racism Returns ...

From a tweet ...

Racist abuse of Saka, Sancho, Rashford; storming Wembley; violence inside; terrified, crying children; fireworks thrown into crowds (we've got video); glass bottles hurled; Wembley Way trashed.

Disgusting and depressing.

Hooligans belonged to clubs, not our experience for EU championship games where hospitality and fun for family is most important. Sportsmanship 🌎

How the games should be played ...

Repubblica
La nazionale dei Tre Leoni, al contrario, è apparsa arrogante nelle esagerate aspettative di vittoria e insofferente davanti alla sconfitta, tra accuse agli italiani di fingere infortuni (quando il tuffo più clamoroso in realtà lo ha fatto il loro Sterling, guadagnando il rigore decisivo in semifinale contro la Danimarca), violenze all'esterno e all'interno dello stadio nella finale, fischi all'Inno di Mameli, abusi razzisti sui social contro i responsabili dei rigori sbagliati e l'apparente gesto di stizza dei giocatori che si sono tolti dal collo la medaglia di secondi classificati. Comportamenti più tipici dei melodrammi creati attorno al pallone nei paesi del Mediterraneo che di queste latitudini.

"cruelty-free," ethically sourced "woke coke" has entered the room>
"I have been shown ads for `environmentally friendly sniff,'" UK drug policy expert Neil Woods told the Mirror of the so-called eco-conscious blow. These supposedly "green" drug commercials were put out in response to growing concerns among Westerners over the environmental damage and violence occurring along the South American drug highway, according to Metro.

However, Woods sees "woke coke" as a "clever marketing" ploy to help drug cartels recuperate their losses after the COVID pandemic disrupted the supply chain.

"There is no way you can have environmentally friendly cocaine," the narcotics hawk said, "not when the market is unregulated like it is today, so people are paying more for the same product."
