Now I know there are a lot of people on here that love football in a properly considered and positive way, but i've always associated it with thuggery, machismo and and violence. I always just thought it was because, by nature, i'm a bit of a fey twerp, but tonight I realised it's because I grew up in Glasgow.
There was a rangers game on tonight and I had to take the underground, so got stuck in a carriage full to bursting with absolute football cunts, drinking tonic wine and singing despicable racist chants. Is this how it normally is? What's football like in England?
They weren't even playing celtic but were singing the usual stuff about king billy, thumping on the walls and generally intimidating the normal people just trying to go places (I was on my way to the theatre, daaaaarling. Already pretty LOL given the context).
So is it just because i'm useless at being a man that I don't like football or do you think that growing up with football being indistinguishable from sectarian violence would have affected you similarily?
I don't know what football's like in england, and obviously there's violence involved there to, but to this extent? Maybe I am just being too fey in being literally terrified whenever I approach someone wearing rangers/celtic uniform, but there's just something about associating racism and songs saying "surrender or die" with a sport.
I would probably really like sport. I'm a rugby champ, you know.
