THE AMERICANS ARE #1 - WAS THERE ANY DOUBT?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Ok all you brits, let's hear how the americans are not as "creative" or "smart" etc. as the brits. Well, we just spanked your behinds didn't we??!!!
All I read on this board is how bad the american series is. Weell we are better than than brits, so what does that say about you?
As for George, I like him. He is funny and he does not dress like a slob, and have bad teeth like Robert!!! haha
Maybe you can do a little better next year brits!!!

Danny, when you grow up maybe you will aspire to show the sportsmanship that the Brits seem to have naturally. It has already been noted that the Brits series is better due to the on set courtesy and respect that the teams have for each other, in contrast to a tinge of smug arrogance that some of the American teams seem to be displaying. I love my American teams but hope that they can take the competition like a swig of good whiskey, and not as a test to prove honor or worth.

Well, Julie, you know what they say. Some people have it, and some people don't. The British, in particular, being have-nots in a particularly acute sense of the word. Let Daniel embrace this as a time of his affection for the American culture. Don't spoil it for him.

Yeah, okay, fine. I guess rash internet comments can bum me out too. Enjoy your American victory Danny boy! (I bet a Canadian team wins the next JYW show debut).

So you are saying that it is a BAD thing that the Americans are competitive? Well maybe if the brits were not so worried being nice to each other and taking tea breaks they would have won the competition.

British are good sports? Have you ever been to a soccer match? Did you see the comments they made about Rafter after Australia beat the British in cricket (they all were rooting for Ivanisevic (sp?) because they didn't want to lose to a dirty Aussie). British are just as bad as the Americans, they just try to hide it better. This whole thing is supposed to be in good fun - but I'm sure the British vs. American debate will continue its pointless existence.
