Re: Guantanamo detainees get new $750,000 football pitch

Wonder if the prisoners had a say in this. If I was a detainee I'd prefer a mini-pitch (it's always hard getting big teams together) and a bowling ally. I think they already have a basketball court.

Hm. Even they are probably better than the US team.

31 is not bad for a country that never embraced the sport.

In contrast to your deeply intellectual threads, I suppose.

Left wingers would try to block the story.

Re: Guantanamo detainees get new $750,000 football pitch

Pretty sure left wingers and right wingers have the same goal.. attempt to put the ball into the box and support the strikers..

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Any team that beats Italy in Italy is not to be taken lightly. Why are you so down on a very good team?

The idea was inspired by Vinnie Jones.

I question the relevance of this news in the face of human rights issues. The clear intent here is to gather sympathy for the US government, which is why they're doing it themselves. The question still exists: What's the relevance?
