The only ideas I liked were minute maids and more streakers (but not fat, and not guys). We should have streaking minute maids!

Yeah, futbol = footbal en espanol. Oh, and todas de estas ideas son mierda.

...and they should be chased and tackled by equally clad security maids. and its should rain every game, so that the fields may teem with mud. this I decree.

Holy shit that was a stupid article... Reduce the game to 60 Minutes Yeah right!! 15 minute quarters?! A fucking helmet football game lasts 3 or more hours!! Americans don't need shorter games, they need more commercials to tell them what to buy in between 4 seconds of action!! God damn!!

My Spanish 'O' Level allows me to translate for you garfield - all the ideas are shit.

figured. thanks squealy. mierda....gotta remember that one. Americans need to figure out that its actually better to watch an uninterupted half rather than 7 minutes of action followed by 3 minutes of ads. Its sad that even marketing/advertising is an establishment that bucks change.

Isn't a humour article supposed to be funny?

i read that yesterday and it seemed amusing. making the field half the size? he was having a lark. nothing very constructive about the article. i thought it seemed like a knowing nod and wink to American soccer fans who have already been coverted to the beautiful game.

I still like the streaking minute maids. And no walking, either. I want them to run a lap around the field. And at half-time, they can all get out and dance in the middle of the field. Awesome. Actually, all you really need is those Brazilian fans and their samba beats. Now, they know how to turn a match into a party.

Just for amusement, I provide a link to a recent Dive Into Mark entry for garfield: Teach me Spanish curse words

Nice. Thanks Billy. Though 'huevon' seems like a compliment.

7 minutes of action followed by 3 minutes of ads I don't think so. I've never seen 7 straight minutes of action in a American Football game. NEVER. I have seen 7 straight minutes of commercials.
