Share your thoughts below.


  1. I hate to say it and I hope my brother doesn’t see this comment, but I love watching Kevin De Bruyne. I am a life long United fan and I really don’t enjoy typing this, but De Bruyne is the best player in the premier league.

  2. This is just a means to keep all of us infidels out of touch with their highly sought after life values so we don’t interrupt or influence their youth and women. If I go to Qatar I will empregnante as many as I can as a type of American vagina jihad.

  3. A shanty town sounds like a breeding ground for all kinds of safety issues.

    There’s so many hazardous variables to this World Cup in Qatar that could go wrong I don’t even know where to begin. My only question is: Where are the migrant slaves going to be housed if we sleep in their tents?

  4. I’m curious as to what was presented for hotel and guest accommodations in Qatar’s bid to FIFA. I suspect in that section, it referred to a separate appendix, or under separate cover. And of course, when any members bothered to open the appendix included in the bid in a separate envelope, several bundles of high denomination bills fell out with the note: “We don’t have any, but do you care?”

  5. I’ve done the tent thing in the Middle East. It was an amazing experience out beyond the city lights. This won’t be quite so cool if you are in the middle of a city next to the stadium.
