We were in Sweden last week and I was wearing my LSU baseball cap. Several people commented on Mondo being one of their favorite athletes in Sweden. Our Swedish tour director kept calling him their national hero. He said his mother is obsessed with him and won't let anyone talk when he is on TV.

He's more popular than Zlatan in Sweden.

That was previously thought to be impossible.

Hope he likes it in Sweden.


We don’t need athletes who feel they don’t need to earn their spot on the team here.

I bet he does like it, moron.
He’s maximizing his earnings by being a professional over there, just like foreign basketball and baseball players do in the USA

The patriotic navel-gazing on this board is so nauseating.

I can think of a lot of reasons why Sweden would be awesome for a young man

You say this like he’s scared or something, the guy is the world record holder like 3x over. He’s living his dream. How anyone can shite on him for that is crazy.

So you are saying he’s scared lol. I don’t think I need to point out the obvious here, but apparently you need some help. The current world record holder isn’t afraid of competition from LSU, the US, or anywhere. Nobody is even close to him in this sport. He’s calling his own shots and anyone pissed about that is a loser. Dudes living the dream.

He should marry a Swedish track star sprinter and move back to Lafayette when he’s done.

Ah, so as usual, you speak of things you have no clue about.
