Kim Jong-il Wants A Mulligan
I know SFL will be coming by with some beefcake later, perhaps. But let it not go unnoticed that today was the day that the people at Korean Central TV wanted to show a game live to the people of North Korea. The point was to show the North Korean people that they, in fact, could compete with anyone in the world and such.

Per ESPN: “As the 7-0 loss to Portugal concluded, the North Koreans quickly halted Monday’s coverage. ‘The Portuguese won the game and now have four points,’ the Korean Central Broadcasting commentator said. ‘We are ending our live broadcast now.’ It then cut to factory workers and engineers praising North Korean leader Kim Jong Il.”
Best. Segue. Ever.
(Oh, and Kim was supposedly handling the whole strategy thing for the boys in South Africa. That worked out well.)
