So, I've been watching the FIFA World Cup soccer(football) the past couple days, trying to be a worldly American. We're not used going 45 minutes without a commercial break here. But after ESPN's coverage of the soccer(football) games, they aried World Championship Dominoes. No kidding. A sports network...showing guys sitting around a table playing some hybrid of a card game, a dice game, and Scrabble. Don't get me wrong; games like chess and contract bridge are masterful games, and are "mind sports" recognized by the International Olympic Committee, I'd like to see them on TV. But Noooo.....we get Dominoes.

and don't get me started on that Texas Hold 'em bullshit....
