Soccer Isn't a Sport For Lazy People Who Fear For Their Lives

Soccer is a sport that I've never really cared for. The main reason used to be because the field was too big and there was too much running. Now the main reason that I don't like soccer is because I don't want to be shot and killed.

During victory celebrations following a match on Saturday between the Shiite villages of Sinjar and Enana, a fan accidentally shot the victorious goalie to death, the police in Babil Province said Monday, according to a report in The New York Times. -- FOXSports.com--

The worst part about the story is that the goalie was killed by an off-duty police officer. This comes right after reports of a seperate incident where an Iraqi soccer player was shot dead by a fan while attempting a game tying kick. If Billy Cole were still alive, he would tell us that guns and sporting events don't go well together.
