Random drawings and other such things

The happening place to be. Unless you go somewhere else that's more stimulating.

The ball is called a sliotar and is roughly baseball sized. I picked one up at a shop and it was pretty dense and heavy, though a little softer than an baseball but still pretty hard. And the seams are raised.

Here is some equipment:

I don't think I'd want to get hit by one of those. European sports always seem a lot more tougher than American sports. No helmets, all guts.
Having played rugby for my school, I can testify to that. I managed a seriously awesome variety of bruises over the while :D

Heh, awesome. My dad was some kind of Rugby champion back in the day. He was telling me about the scrum or something and didn't know what he was talking about. I guess I need to see it sometime. He kickboxed too which is pretty cool.

I wanted to see a Rugby match, but the season hadn't started up yet when I was in Ireland. I'd like to see a football match someday too. I played soccer as a kid, but I sucked.

The scrum is where pain lives

Mmmm, pain. I hear more injuries occur in the scrum than tackling and such.

The scrum?... OH, the scrum. Right.

For a minuet I though much much differently.

You should check out the Chicago Fire Evan, if you want to see some futbol. Unless you were talking about American football.

Yeah, I was talking about Soccer. One of my coworkers was talking about how he went to a Chicago Fire vs Celtic F.C. and it was pretty cool. Or something like that. Didn't know European teams ever came over here. Soccer is not all that popular here. But I should go sometime anyway.

Doesn't surprise me that a team like Celtic F.C. would play here. I think they have a large fan base here in the States. Plus some players here actually play over in European leagues and vise verse. David Beckham plays for the L.A. Galaxy for example. In the M.L.S. there's a team that's basically an extended club of a really popular Mexican soccer team, called Chivas USA.

Wooo.. my head is buzzing.

To be honest, most of the European players going to the US are the older ones looking for an easy pay cheque. In the case of Beckham, he was more signed as a brand to boost the sport's visibility. He's still a good player, but he's nowhere near the level he used to be at.

So was there as much excitement for the Olympics in Ireland as there was here?

Heh heh, it's hard to say because I wasn't here. I was up and about most of the time so I didn't really notice. I imagine there was more excitement here in the US since we had stuff like Michael Phelps and such happening. But it was cool to see a non-American focus on tv. Every country will obviously focus on their own country.

I saw Beckham on a tv show in Ireland about superstars before they were stars. He was a kid and was showing off some fancy soccer moves with a ball. He kicked some kid in the head while going after the ball once. And Beckham had a mullet.

Yeah, we get Mexican channels here so I get the whole looking at media from a different country view point thing.

Did you ever catch any reports about U.S. politics while you were over there?

If your the same person I think you are, I'd would say the same about your art. :D

Also welcome new person!

Nice! Is there a context to these or were they drawn they just for fun?

The first one is a friend of mine. It was a response to a goofy meme in which we had to pick names of people that fit various statements. I put down Sunoo for "someone that seems like a prince," and drew that goofy pic. There's a different version where he has a speech bubble that says, "That's the gayest thing in the known universe. Even gayer than Streak." Not that that makes sense to anyone else

The second one I just sort of drew.

The Welsh Corgi in a Wiener dog suit and the cow eating a hamburger was drawn in a birthday card.

The husky is a badge I'm making for someone.

And the last two are some people I know. I was experimenting with cute things.

Useless information: As people probably know, the thumb up/down sign originated with gladiator fights in Rome; the audience showing their approval or lack thereof. The fun thing is, back in Roman times, thumbs up meant "kill him" while thumbs down meant "good show". No one has ever been able to explain how it got turned around to what we use today.

I blame the lack of gladiator fights.
