About a week ago I posted ads created by fans of the Manchester United soccer club in England who are trying to fight the ownership takeover of the club by Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer. The ads were fairly hilarious. They've also posted banners on barricades outside Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. (pictured above)
Well, they're still at it.
A friend of mine in Tampa who is in contact with the anti-leprechaun group forwarded me this e-mail:
On Sunday Manchester United are playing their 'big' game of the season against Arsenal at Old Trafford.
I'm not sure what is planned for Tampa by the other supporters groups.
A date for your diary would be 12th November in Manchester. The United plc AGM will be held on that day at 11 a.m. It will be a world media event.
If you want to get a real taste for the passion this group has for the legacy of the team and the rich tradition behind it, click here to see a video the group made.
In somewhat related soccer news, for some fun, try this game, in which you use your cursor to help a drunk soccer fan get home. Posted by Jeff at October 20, 2004 07:24 AM | TrackBack
