Qatar Gets the World Cup
“As part of the arrangement, Qatar has been asked to allow Women basic human rights, stop their slave trade, allow alcohol, allow homosexuals to enter the country, and of course recognize Israel as a state. Oh wait…none of that happened. They just paid the most. If nothing got us to discover alternate energy sources before, surely this will spurn some innovation?”
…from an ESPN article announcing Qatar won the right to host the 2022 World Cup, beating out the US.
As a passionate US Soccer supporter, this really sucks. And, in all honesty, me posting this comment is definitely based on my feelings about the decision right now.
