Swedish Soccer Player gets Red Card for Farting during Game!
This cracked me up!! In the midst of reading a lot of heavy/burdensome news stories…this gem of a headliner showed up.
“I asked the referee, ‘What, am I not allowed to break wind a little?’ ” Ljungkvist continued, sensing that the world and the history books would need more information. ” ‘No,’ he replied. … I don’t get it but maybe he thought I farted in my hand and threw the fart at him. But I did not.”
The referee explained himself. “I perceived it as deliberate provocation,” Kako said, adding that he’d once given a player a yellow for peeing by the field as well. “He did it on purpose and it was inappropriate. Therefore, he received a yellow card.”
After reading this story, it made me think back to a football game I played in while at SMU. Prior to a game…someone came up with this idea that if we drank this juice ( I believe it was wheat germ oil ) that we wouldn’t get winded during the game.
We were told that a teaspoon would do the trick. Well, being the goof-balls that we were…most of us took a mouthful of the juice to make sure it worked.
The result: I still got winded and we created a WIND STORM on the field of major GAS proportions. If football officials handed out red cards…our team would have been disqualified!! Our opponent definitely didn’t appreciate our efforts, either! Haha
Oh well, on this Friday as we head to the weekend… hope you take this levity as it was intended.
