OT: Womens World Cup Greatest Excuse for Loss Ever!
I fail to realize why making fun of an entire nation of people because of their plight is, like the cool thing to do these days.
I am just saying what if they were really struck by lightning? We don't know, so we may as well take the reason seriously Schroedinger's Cat style.
I just want my athletes and their coaches to be amusing, and this fits the bill. Bravo, North Korean Women's Soccer Coach Who Must Desperately Try To Save Face Or Face An Uncertain Fate. Bravo.
Does anyone know what happened to the men's coach after that world cub debacle? I remember them being ridiculed in public for a few hours and heard rumors that he ended up in a labor camp or something but never really confirmed anything.

Unbelievable I started a thread about a funny sports story (IMO) where a coach blames an undocumented lightning strike as the cause of failure at a current sporting event on the world stage. Then it turns into a political debate over socialism and rights/life styles of the NK people.
If it wasn't for the very well written game recap I would ask the MOD's to remove the entire thread. That said, if the MOD's can bump the game recap to its own thread by all means please do because this thread has officially derailed.
I apologize for what this thread has become. Though I didn't think the initial story would cause this.
No dude, this one is my bad. This has gone way further than I wanted it to go, and I'll take my share of the blame. Lock it up/Shut it down.
