I'd say Beckham, Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan.

 

:lol: Jesus is pissed. His own fault, he can't dance, can't pass and can't dunk. No one gives a fuck about fundamentals these days.

The day after George W. Bush was reelected, Canada’s main immigration website had 115,000 visitors. There were only 20,000 before.

 

The most surreal election I will ever be a part of.

What was 2000 like? From what I gather, it was some third world type nonsense. (Especially the part where his brother had control of the disputed region :lol:) Gore got the most votes, but Bush wins because...er...well...that's what we decided. If that was any other country, it wouldn't have gone as smoothly, for sure.

2000 was before 9/11 and the whole War on Terror, so it didn't get as hot as it should have. The whole situation in Florida stunk to high heaven, but we weren't at war or really in any trouble at all (as far as we knew) so it blew over a hell of a lot faster than it should have.

 

2004 though. Man, that morning felt like a revolution. Everywhere you looked, people were walking in the same direction ready to vote this guy out. It was among my proudest American moments when I saw how many people were at the polls. Got back from casting my vote and started watching the coverage. I'll never, ever ever forget some guy on CNN saying "People don't turn out in record numbers to re-elect. This is a horrible sign for Bush" I was completely :bluestar: until the numbers started coming in later that night. Then the whole Ohio situation broke out.

 

It was fucking unbelievable. :lol: The next day people were just shaking their heads, just totally unable to grasp the situation. I still can't believe he won. :lol: I don't even like thinking about it.
