"It's a shame we don't share the same courage in our convictions as this little 10-year-old Dutch lad, who - with a little help from his Dad when it came to the words (come on you boys in red, Eindhoven we love you), proudly led the PSV crowd in a chant during a recent pre-season friendly against FC Eindhoven..."

I wondered how long before the F word showed up. These are cloggies, I know they sound like Germans and are holding up a hand but they are a different and largely peaceful peoples. This is just a football chant at a football match. Nothing more.

It seems that the chant calls for people to raise both hands. I noticed one person raising only a single hand, but I assumed (and hoped) that this was out of laziness.

The Dutch aren't doing Nazi salutes these days or any other days.

I'm glad that soccer clubs never have any nationalist/right-wing aspirations.

(Yes, that was a joke. I'm sure these people are just goofing around. Until a referee's head gets put on a stake, that is.)

I like how they broke into "Yankee Doodle" at the end there.

So in this modern, gritty, relaunch of the classic, the little Dutch boy punches a hole in the dike, unleashing the maelstrom?
