    I'm a bit under the weather and may just watch by myself, but would like to know if there are any gatherings planned in HK.

    Thanks!

    Careful with the stereotyping; that's on the verge of being offensive. "Chop Suey" indeed.

    Well, there's at least one here now. But HK only runs out of bagels during games.

    Not quite offensive yet but definitely stereotyping. As an Asian it's actually tiring to read posts by NEM which almost always refer to chow mein or chop suey whenever Hong Kong is mentioned. How would you like it if one implies that new england is only good for clam chowder and lobster? It's not really offensive, but after you hear it over and over it gets very tiring.

    So instead of asking people to lighten up, maybe you should be more considerate. its a patsfan board and there are pats fans everywhere around the world.

    I have read some things here that were blatant stereotyping. Are we all that sensitive that we can't mention a food productwithout hiding under the table?

    I'm pretty sure those dishes aren't Chinese at all, but if you think I run away crying because somebody called me a Chowderhead then maybe you are that sensitive.

    I feel sorry for you in that case and bear in mind I have actual made fun of Motzah balls and Bagels to PatJew, (is he allowed to use a blatant stereotype as a user name)?

    To atone, I'm think of changing my user name to hopeless Irish Drunk, so I can come clean and share the shame of my people.

    This is my fault. I'll never mention Hong Kong or my people's consistently disgusting food again. Can't do anything about the username without losing my post # status, though, and can't do that when I'm so tantalizing close to 1000.

    But if RayClay changes his name to Irish Drunk, I promise to change mine to PatCheapJew. It's funny because it's true. Actually, I suggest that everyone change their username to a blatant stereotype. SMG can change his name to SmartAsian, because he's both.

    Holy Crap I wish this game would get here already. I'm going batty.

    It has nothing to do with sense of humor.

    No one is running away crying. All i'm saying is that if it's said over and over again it gets tiring. Sorry if you can't understand the difference. If anyone is sensitive it's you. Just because I made a comment about this, you turn into the sensitivity police. Congratulations, you'll make captain in no time.

    Now look what you've done.

    I wash my hands of this blatant stereotyping. Not my fault and in poor taste.

    By the way, I wasn't trying to offend any Italians or people of African descent who happen to live in Hong Kong when i changed the foods to lasagna and collard greens.

    I mean who doesn't like Lasagna.

    And it so happens i went to a buffet that was kind of Soul Food, but mostly Southern. They had fried grits, but I didn't bother with that. I really couldn't see the purpose of frying grits and they had a lot of good vegetable dishes so I felt a little less guilty when I loaded up on Lima beans, Collard Greens and some kind of cabbage dish with bits of ham and stuff in it.

    Why mess with the deep fried stuff when you had all you can eat ribs and some kind of meat that was like roast beef or something.

    I don't think there was anything like Ham hocks or neck bones or whatever, but I've never really eaten that kind of stuff. There was probably some fried chicken gizzards, but i didn't bother. I really shouldn't be eating at buffets anyway.

    Collard Greens are good and healthy, so that's a good tip to try something different.

    We actually got takeout from one last week.

    5 out of 5 family members agreed, it was awful!

    Now we're sticking with Chinese, Thai and Indian.

    Now I know why so many on this board gang up on you. I'll be reminded next time not to support your right to freedom of speech because you so obviously like to abuse it.

    NEM,

    It is called RESPECT that is what it's about. Not poking fun of someone else's culture. It's low class.
