But I'd still pay to see it. Catania, an Italian soccer team, has decided to employ a new strategy to score goals. They're dropping their shorts on penalty kicks--not to distract the goalie with their comely thighs, as I first suspected. No, it's to block his sight line so he can't actually see the kick being made. Okay, I recognize that this may, MAY, be bending the rules of polite competition. But let me just say that I was once stuck in a security line for almost two hours at the Manchester airport with the Roman soccer team. And if the Catania team looks anything like the Romans, I'm thinking they can raise their ticket prices a LOT.
