Saw this floating around the Intertubes the other day and it amused me.
If you didn’t guess it already, this is not serious. It’s Colbert-esque satire from Boston-based comic Billy Bob Neck whose useds YouTube as his outlet. Though, I can’t say it’s too far off after what I heard on KMJ last week.
(Please note: I don’t listen to KMJ all the time.)
I was flipping around my radio dial last week, the same day the U.S. beat Algeria, when I heard Chris Daniel ranting about soccer — how it was the stupidest sport ever, how the rules weren’t progressive enough and how it uses those “gay little cards.” He made a point about the rules of the game being so stuck in tradition. That was especially odd, considering the ever-conservative, Bible-thumping source.
For the record: I’m no soccer fan either. But I at least respect what the game means on a worldwide level, and that some people are really into it.
As I look at it now, Daniel’s rant shared the same ethnocentric basis that we see in the video above, just with one important caveat — Billy Bob Neck is a character; Chris Daniel was being serious.
