The Renegade

If Santa is reading my blog, he may wish to note that Mr Perryperson's Philosophy Football site is selling a Karl Kautsky t-shirt, and that I'm a svelte XL.

It says:
"Emancipation of their class appears to them a foolish dream. It is football which moves them and to which their material means are devoted."

Supporting almost every football team is a bit of a foolish dream these days. However, if Karl had spent his mid-teens in Nottingham in the late 1970s, his quote would have been more apposite then than it is now.

*sob*

Yea... but he would have probably gone to watch County.

yep, he would have been a County fan.

believe or not, I spotted the same t shirt and was going to post the same type of special pleading post (different shirt size, though).

I think I'll just link to your post instead. ;-)
