In the name of tolerance and acceptance, I'm willing to forgive the British for that bit of nastiness in 1812. And the French did give the world champagne *and* mayonaisse. But in the name of cultural friendship we Yanks think it'd be nice if you could spice up yer national sport. Widen the goals. We Americans like home runs and touchdowns. I think an average basketball game is something like 297 to 286. See what I'm saying? Wouldn't a 9 to 8 game be a lot more fun to watch than a 1 to nil game decided by penalty-kicks? Shit, if you Euros would do that, I'd bet we might mellow on being the world's bully-cop. Widen the damn goals, what do you say?
