Soccer Rocks

4:15 PM -- Finally, I'm reading about a football (soccer) game I would have liked to see. From today's AFP wire:

A third-division provincial girls football team entered the annals of Belgian soccer on Saturday after suffering a crushing 50-1 defeat because of the absence of a single but crucial player: their music-loving goalkeeper.

SK Berlaar's goal was left unguarded in a match with FC Malines after its goalie opted instead to go to a rock festival...

Related observation: If both sides of a soccer team would agree to play without goal keepers, soccer might see a popularity surge here in the U.S.
