A taste of my own medicine...?

Possibly... last night someone, somewhere (New York) took offence at my blog post about Liverpool's current owners and how pleased I was that they are selling up.

To be honest it's hardly a contentious piece.  The club is worse off than when they arrived, the new stadium has stalled and there's not a fan out there that's thinking, 'oh bugger, that seems like a shame.'

So what was I accused of?  'Yankee bashing.'

The weird bit was being on the receiving end of someone else's ranting a week after I went off on one and got unfollowed.  However, I didn't unfollow this guy, he got so upset by my post that he blocked me.  Although even as I type he's still raging at me.  Which is kind of amusing.  The joy of two accounts huh. ;)

One of the things I've loved about twitter is the way it has completely opened up my world, particularly when it comes to the Americans I've met.  Ty, KJC, Jen, Nessa and Mich to name but five.  My preconceptions have been blown out of the water with their wry humour, true sense of where the USA sits in the world and their warmth and generosity.  There's no way one person is gonna spoil that for me and in the end it just all led to a few funny facebook updates from AT.  So it all turned out ok.

Just to clarify though for anyone that was upset by my 'Yankee Bashing' post, it would not have mattered where Gillett and Hicks were from, I would have hated what they've done to 'my' club regardless.

Tom Cruise is still a cock block though.
