  1. Petey's 2018 Winter Olympics Thread

    Koreans are very sensitive about Japanese in general. Japan occupied Korea for several decades until their empire collapsed in World War II, and they were not benevolent masters. Korean women were commonly conscripted as "comfort women" -- unwilling sex slaves used by the Japanese armed forces for R&R. Most of Korean history since, including the current series of crises, is the direct result of that occupation. Officially, South Korea and Japan are cooperative with each other, and both are significant economies in Asia, but the wounds haven't healed in the Korean psyche. It doesn't help that the arrogance of Japan's days of imperial glory has not entirely dissipated.

    mmm, NO. Few Americans have any idea what Korean ceremonial garb looks like, but Koreans do. The Japanese get their turn in the 2020 Summer Games. I refer you to this for a quick reference on how Koreans traditionally dress for ceremonial occasions.

  13. 2018 World Cup

    I'm not sure what happened in Moscow in 1980; that was the year that the US boycotted the Games and most of her allies joined them, over the invasion of Afganistan (it's amazing how many of the changes there have been stemmed from that one operation), So the data would be definitely skewed by the absence of these teams. In Russia's top-flight football league, there is a quota of foreign-born players and the few non-white players in the league are booed incessantly with no intervention from Russian Soccer officials. They also receive many other forms of harassment, subtle or otherwise. Generally speaking, the Russian league is of decent quality but playing conditions are horrible.
