Futbol, or Soccer as it's known here in the states, has become the glamour sport of the world. While back in the 1980's and early 90's celebrity players were limited to Europe and other parts of the world and the only international celebrity was Pele, today the sport has become something of a star factory. When Pele was signed to play for New York back in 1979, there was nothing really appealing to the public outside of the icon's star power.
Today you have stars that have transcended the sport and at the same time brought it into a new light. Guys like Ronaldo, Mesi, and a few others have become singular figures that exceed their own countries teams. Luis Suarez has become the Tyson of the game while some whole teams have become outstanding examples of the power that the sport seems to have to unite the masses.
Something about the 2014 World Cup has demonstrated that Futbol/Soccer has truly become the media darling. It's not uncommon to see a game on the tube in a bar just like it's not uncommon to see more and more people wearing their favorite jerseys. This is a sport that produces mind boggling numbers. Matches usually produce crowds of 60,000 + and the recent build in popularity has led to some serious investments stateside.
In the city of Orlando there is a 110 million dollar facility being put up to house the Orlando City Soccer Club. In turn Orlando City Soccer Club just acquired the services of Brazilian soccer star Kaka. The World Cup is an even and it brings people to stadiums, the game itself is making celebrities and adding a new dimension, interesting thing to see.
It seems to me as though political correctness has gone beyond the necessary spot. The fact of the matter is we as a society have become frightened of speaking our minds, being taken out of context, and suddenly going through an unnecessary backlash. To be honest, I think it's bullshit that we live in constant fear of that. Let's be real for a minute, it's not correct to be judgmental or racist but to limit your vocabulary on the basis of how fearful you are that someone may be offended by words like nut, or semen is ridiculous. I say be intelligent in your positions, learn to properly back your arguments, and to hell with tepid talk.

D-O-U-C-H-E-B-A-G - Engaging in the act of douchery, assuming the attitude of a bag of douche, bagging the douche and getting a disgusting douche like smell that freaks out most everyone.
This fella in the picture is a tattoo "artist" and I use the term artist very loosely. The reason why I feel he is the personification of a douchebag is because he has a holier than thou attitude. I'm writing this entry in order to cleanse my soul of all the venom that lies within. Personally I'd like for this fucker to take a needle, shove it up his ass and tattoo himself right there. Why expose him? because I can! So never go get a tattoo from the punk bitch at Atomic Tattoo in Sao Paulo, or if you see him in Amsterdam or Portugal.

I have no respect for Dr. Oz and I never will. I'm not a Dr. but I am the son of a Physician that was the very embodiment of the Hippocratic oath. As a child I remember my father looking upon diet foods and crash weight loss products in a less than favorable manner. This idiot recommends every available product that's willing to pay him a hefty fee for valuable real estate in his show. He was grilled on the floor of congress and basically engaged in self contradictory statements and made himself look like a fool. Fuck you Oz you are not the wizard you want people to think you are.
If you want advice go to a Doctor that's willing to tell you the good and the bad in several areas. Stay away from the Physician featured in The Canterbury Tales.
Yes I went there and I plan on buying real estate there too. I'm so sick about hearing about 2016, and every candidate interested in having a pissing contest for the grand prize of fucking the people. The truth is I've lost faith in people, the ones that call themselves leaders. If we were to go down the line and examine the words of politicians, we would get the blueprint of a lifelong popularity contest. Fuck them all!
I say let's have Christopher Walken run for President and be a different character each day in office. Let's make politics fun ( insert cliche here ).

I have to say that the X Men franchise simply continues to improve, enter X Men Days of Future Past. I'm not a fanboy and I really don't care to get into comic book history because, honestly, I'm sure I'll lose in terms of little obscure details. From what I saw this particular film stayed fairly true to source material, something that most films rarely ever do. I love the fact that the film itself tells a story that's well connected to previous films in the franchise.
This particular movie picks up where the last Wolverine installment left of and gives first class a lot more prominence. Sure the whole story is turned upside down and essentially the timeline established by the first X Men film is shaken to its core but it's okay because in the Marvel Universe X Men is the on title that takes heroes to a place unlike any other title.
X Men goes beyond the logical into the impossible, people with special abilities fighting for their existence and the salvation of mankind. There is still a powerful future for this franchise provided that they keep hitting the parts of the stories that really meant something as far as the books are concerned. Let's see what happens, hopefully Disney won't fingerbang this like they have so many other things.
