Speaking as a Dynamo fan, I think the separation between the white and Latino fans has a very simply reason: language. It's difficult to get into the chants when you don't actually know what words they are saying. Our largest "ultra" group is El Battalion. They do some cool things, but virtually all...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

This thread has been great. It's really got me wanting to go on a Zelda binge. I don't mean to hijack the thread, but I have some 3DS questions. I have an old Wii and have TP on it, but I have a baby on the way and we've pretty much put the Wii in storage to make room. I keep seeing that you guys pl...

Excellent way to start the thread. I hate to kill the optimism, but did anyone see Alexis's ankle? It's huge. I'll look for a pic. Hopefully, Arsene can ease him back this year.

They also compared it to Cameroon and Senegal in the World Cup. It's not near the same thing. Cameroon beat other African teams to make it, then they got lucky in one game. Iceland beat a bunch of other European teams then made the knockout stages as a second place team. This win was way more likely...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
