Hey guys, here's something that's come up but I think requires attention again. Some people have complained that the repeated taunting of Sacha Kljestan over his "gay" look are offensive and not everybody is cool with / on board for those chants.

Ultimately, this is LARS and you can do as you like, but maybe we should consider putting that chant / those references to bed (no pun intended).

Personally, I won't be participating in those chants anymore, but I do think we can still try to get inside Kljestan's head, especially considering his recent drop in form, his wall-jumping error at the Beijing Olympics, and his questionable inclusion in the second half of the Confederations Cup final.

I know the chant is catchy and all, but this is about having some consideration to our fellow LARSers, and admittedly, we could probably do better than "Hey Sacha, you're so gay."

Just my .02 cents.


PS. Taking shots at the bastard for dressing like a damn emo kid is still allowed and is actually encouraged by everybody from President Palin to Secretary of Sexy Hope Solo.

In the meantime, I'll probably be fronting the $$$ for this banner:

Yeah, that chant was fun as hell, but it's not fun to make my friends around me uncomfortable.

The Olympics thing is so the way to go anyways, Andric came up with the chant to match the sign:


Sacha lost the gold
Sacha lost the gold
Hi ho the derio
Sacha lost the gold


Imagine all of us saying that while the sign is up as he walks out.

LARS 2 - 0 SACHA

Cassi very well put and done, I got $$ for a banner.

I'm sure a lot of people do (if you're talking about just sports fans). How about all those people who make hand painted banners instead of arguging and using photoshop to come up with them? I wonder which takes more time.

I still find it funny that at one point, some people said, "Is Sacha really gay? Cause then that's fucked up..."

There are better things to get into his head. I think calling him "gay" has been exhausted.

Big Ass Bump!

We play Chivas this Saturday.

Are we going to try to get the poster in then, or wait for a Galaxy Home game?

Okay.

No more gay chant. Mostly cuz I hate picturing Toni Basil every time those words are uttered. Yeah, I go a ways back.

But if the "Hey Mickey!" chant does come back, how about:

Oh Sasha you're so straight,
You make me cum a Ricki Lake,
Hey Sasha,
Hey Sasha!



Alright.... 'lost the gold'.

The Olympics were a while ago. "You let down your country" he'll be like WTF I didn't even play in the Confed Cup.

Sacha lost the gold.... zero doubt. You fucking lost the gold medal, dude.
