    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Spanish : Yes, it's been a while.  I have been rather busy.  The game was broadcast on your local tv?  I saw it because I bought a slingbox and have it in my son's house in Billerica.  I then watch it by getting it on my laptop and having an HDMI cable into by big screen TV.  Not HD, but certainly watchable. This Spanish thing really irritates me.  One of the strengths of this country is that we have a single language -- English.  I have nothing against any ethnicity's heritage, but if you decide to move here, learn English!!!! I am all for ESL classes in schools.  I am dead set against bi-lingual education.  It is the sure road to division among US citizens.  We are a melting pot.  The language of that pot is ENGLISH.

    Here is where you are dead WRONG as well as naive and ignorant. America is NOT a melting pot. Maybe back 60 years ago it was but it certainly is not now in 2010. The definition of "melting pot" is a total blending of all cultures and ethnicities. That "let's all be the same" mentality is dated to say the least. What America is now, for lack of a better analogy, is like a salad. A whole bunch of diverse ingredients that are different but still part of the "whole". THAT my ignorant friend is what makes Amarica great. Diverse cultures, religions, languages, food all living under one umbrella. Come out of the dark ages will you??

    [QUOTE]i agree i'll be glad when we have european heritage month, oh wait a minute that's what octoberfest is. Actually, Oktoberfest is just Munchens (Munichs) thing.  Fest season kicks off right after Lent ends and runs through summer up until it ends in October.  Most are held before September.  I used to find the different towns where they were having them, you can easily hit up 20 or so if you keep moving. Fasching season starts around November and runs up to Lent. Its like indoor drunken halloween.  For a bunch of super neat freaks, they sure can roll out the party.

    i've been to Munich during Oktoberfest. We went on a school field trip back in 1972, visited the Olympic site, Dachua and the fabled Hofbrau Haus-first time i ever had a brew.

    My guess is that ESPN did that because it would help their bottom line.

    It's still a free market system out there, at least where I operate.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Spanish : It was broadcast on national (not nationally owned) television, by NBC, a private company who can do whatever they want.  Miami is a team that has brought in high profile latino part owners in an attempt to get more Latino fans in the stands, since so many people in the area are from the north.  [/QUOTE]

    Because that strategy worked so well in the past for example with the Marlins? They thought that the stands would be filled with Spanish people because they all love baseball. They forgot that most of them are too poor to buy tickets, even though they are priced really cheap compared to other cities, so nobody attends Marlins games. They compound this issue by using the tax payers money to build a new stadium that will also be empty, even with a sucessful franchise just north of them in  Tampa calling fans out for not attending games during a pennant race. If the fans have no money, why are they going to magically appear now?

    Tell me where I insulted you or anyone else.  There is no need to start insulting.  As for intelligence, I would have that fight with you but I don't fight with a handicapped person.  You don't understand the meaning of melting pot.  It is a gathering from all over and they all bring their own flavors to the mix.  In the end you have one whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.  That is why you maintain your culture and take pride in it.  However, there is one common LANGUAGE.  That, and only that, is what I am talking about.

    You, sir, are the typical ugly American stereotype.  You would move to say, Germany, and expect everyone there to speak English to you rather than you putting out the effort to learn the language of the country to which you are moving, German.

    OK, now you have turned this into an ad hominem (look it up if you have to  in www.m-w.com) sequence.  I won't participate with you any further because I am going back to your post and putting you on my ignore list.

    Your definition of melting pot is off the mark. What is the definition of "melt"?? It's a blending of ingredients or components if you will to form ONE mixture that is homogeneous. Melting pot was just that..numerous cultures coming together, blending and then losing their own distinct "flavors". Today, you have a completely different scenario. Cultures come together in the "pot" that is this country but there IS NOT homogeneous blending. There is MUCH more cultural diversity than there was in the early days of immigration. Who's ignorant here???

    Whether  the pot is melting, boiling or whatever, it has long been over flowing.  Long past due to stop adding more ingredients.  Viva Arizona!!!!!!!!!

    I absolutely agree. 

    Now the Irish already spoke English and the Chinese learned English, as well as the Poles, the Russians, the Vietnamese, the Koreans, the Japanese, the Italians, the Greeks, etc. etc. etc.

    Having a common language -- ONE language -- is a very positive unifying factor for a nation.   What is discriminatory about having ONE national language?  Is not bending over backwards to accommodate their lack of interest in learning the language of the country that THEY decided to move to in any way discriminatory?  Since when is treating everyone the same discriminatory?

    I say treat everyone with the same respect.  However, they came here so let them learn OUR language rather than burdening us with a requirement to accommodate everything in their language. 

    BTW, those accommodations aren't cheap.  Look at the extra cost involved in having bilingual classes.  Look at the extra cost in preparing legal documents in more than one language (and making sure that the inflections of the words transmit the same message).  But cost is not my main concern, though it is a concern.  My main concern is that we lose the unifying aspect of being able to go anywhere in this country and not have a language problem because English is everywhere.

    I joke about this, but there is truth to it.  When I had to leave Massachusetts (the depression of 2001 and on), I took a job in North Miami Beach.  I moved to Ft. Lauderdale.  When I moved to central Florida three years later, I joked about moving back to the United States.  In the Miami area English is effectively a second language to Spanish.    Everyone fully understands that joke.

    Note:  My objection is not the the people nor to their cultures.  My objection is their insistence that we accommodate them by using their language rather than requiring those immigrants to learn OUR language.
