    Watching the Penguins parade as I type this. A few of the players are trying to act like fools and have fun with the crowd (crowdsurfing, etc) and the team PR guys seem to have a hard time letting them just high five people.

    Bitches are on a leash.

    whats funnier is when the players have some kind of political message on their T-shirt underneath, the crowds all like
    "YYYEEEEEAAAHHHH-wha?"
    but the belgians dont have th balls to do that, dont see why their worried :P

    "I will neeeeever understand professional sports."

    You see the ads all over this page? You know how those ads are what allow this website to operate? And the only way that works is because you offer something that people want to see.

    Pro sports is kind of the same thing. Except they make so much money they need to get revenue from every possible source.

    Ah, this is because they banned taking your shirt off in celebration a few years ago. The clubs put up signs all over the place to remind players not to overly celebrate. This is just one that was made by a sponsor and so is a bit corprate.

    they banned lifting up or taking off your shirt because some players had other sponsors or messages printed on their undershirts.
    funny thing is that Dexia have nearly gone bust due to the recession, i guess the team wasn`t following the rules :P

    I like that AIG is all over Manchester United`s jerseys. That`s cool that they`re using the bailout money to sponsor a sports team is another country. Any sports sponsorship is bad enough, but a team in a different country is pretty lame. And it`s a soccer team at that.

    Just kidding. Soccer`s cool. I`m warming up to it. Except for when they dribble and pass for like 45 minutes and then finally take a shot at a giant goal and miss by like 20 feet. That`s kinda not so cool.

    I got nothing wrong with "utd" just a problem with U.S. bailout money being used to sponsor them.

    Silly ferret, you can`t listen to a sign, they don`t make any noise. And he`s a professional athlete, so he can`t read, that`s why its in pictures for them. If they still go ahead and do it, they get docked a million dollars from their wage that week; do it 40 or 50 times in a season and you start to really miss that extra beer money you lost.

    Ha! It`d be great if he lifted his shirt like that after scoring a goal, only to reveal the sponsor`s name tattooed on his chest? Then he could be like, "Now what, sign?!? ...now what?"

    And he could also be on an i-a-b list for worst tattoos ever...

    The chance Club Brugge (the t-shirt is from that team) will score is so minimal, they better remove that sign forever.

    Well for me, it`s either think of the children OR think of your sponsor...not both.
