Beano Cook (Surprise!) Doesn't Get Soccer, Loves Making Sexy Comments About Sportswriters



With all due respect to pensioners, old folks, spinsters and Grandparents nationwide the answer is "Yes". Yes Beano, you are too. But you justify this blog's insistence on carrying a "Geriatrics" tag and I thank you for that along with service to the nation in the War of 1812 and every subsequent U.S. military action up to and including Korea.

And yes Beano, you still don't get it; people will give a damn if Spain meets Brazil in the World Cup. If you had a computer you would know this but you don't (which begs the question "How do you have a an online segment and you don't even have the internet?"). But I thank you for one of the most wonderful rambles of the pre-World Cup era of 2010; you are clueless yet still amazing.

Ignorance is Bliss. And he is just an idiot about this.

"Maybe if I watched a few games I would get it"

That said it all.

Is it possible that he reads The Onion? Or has a ramble writer that does? Because his thing about Europeans coming here to escape the tyranny of soccer is straight from The Onion.

So, wait. Is he saying he doesn't get it?

I love Beano Cook. So crotchety.

Despite that, in this clip he is the epitome of old-school (and just plain old), white sportswriters.

And as much as I love Beano and plenty of those old guys for what they do in other sports, I won't be sad as this type of mind set starts to (literally) die off.

No computer, no cell, no clue. The sports landscape is changing underneath your nose Beano, but you to much of an idiot, or just to old, to see it. And your name is that of an anti-gas product. You are definitely out of touch.

This is embarrassing.

That's a bold prediction guessing that 5 out of 64 games will end 1-0.

What a buffoon. I shall crown him King of the Ignorant Dinosaur Sportswriters. Thankfully, his reign will be short, and his kingdom is collapsing around him.
