Soccer in Africa is the shit

In African soccer news, Mbale Heroes did not show up for their make-or-break tie against Super League champions URA at Namboole stadium, citing diarrhea that has hit their camp. Heroes wrote to national football league secretary Moses Magogo last weekend requesting that the match be rescheduled to allow their players recover. Magogo rejected the initial plea but was forced to give the Mbale side a hearing after they sent supporting documents yesterday.

For a continent with a rampant AIDS epidemic and tapeworms the size of houses, a little diarrhea shouldn't keep these guys from playing. They should consider themselves lucky they only had the runs considering after eating their food, David Wells left Africa with diabetes.
