He dribbled the puck down the pitch and put in the uprights for a touchdown. Yahtzee!

In case you missed the game, the immediate media attention, or tweets and facebook updates from your friends, Portugal just finished up a 7-0 drubbing of North Korea. You read that correctly. Seven to zero. After the score was 4-0, the game became painful to watch. I actually started feeling sorry for the North Korean team as Portugal scored again, and again, and again. The North Korean team could not and did not respond to crosses and plays from the wing from Portugal, nor could they match the speedy runs made by the Portuguese offense. All-in-all, a rather sad game for the DPK.

Of course, the official North Korean media has a history of ignoring (i.e. not reporting) defeats of the DPK national squad. And, given the severity of the drubbing, the North Korean team may find it in their best interests to ‘go missing’ like some of their players were reported as earlier this week. You never know what the Glorious Leader will do when they report back.

    The title alone was worth the price of the post – nice phrasing!
