0200 World Cup Blues

Jul 10, 2012, 01:35 PM, South Pyongan, North Korea

World Cup. 1966. North Korea stuns soccer fans by becoming the first Asian team ever to advance to the quarterfinals where they go up 3-0 against Portugal before finally being defeated at the hands – or rather feet – of the Portuguese team. World Cup. 2010. The North Korean team, after a respectable 1-2 loss to Brazil, receives orders from Kim Jong-Il himself for the defense to stop being so focused on, well, defense and to position themselves forward on the field during their next game against…Portugal. Déjà vu! Anyway, the players obey – what choice do they have? – and…lose 0-7, live, on state controlled TV. This team, by the way, was given the state’s highest medal for athletes. Kim Jong Il should get a medal, too...for meddling. #ceas #hacker #NorthKorea
