Probably not, but you hope this kids becomes that successful
I tend to like when guys on my teams say things like this every now and then.

Which is fine if that is your opinion (and it is shared by many here in the States), but the real quote that you should be pissed about is "It is the least talented sport in the world?" I bet it is, asshole.
