I don’t know, maybe I’m just in a bad mood tonight and my mean-streak is showing, but for some reason this news story made me shake my head and laugh.
A South Korea man in his mid-twenties died Friday after setting himself on fire and leaving a chilling suicide note saying he wanted to be “a ghost and the 12th player” for his team in the World Cup, police said.
“I’m choosing death because South Korea has to go far to compete with the Latin American and European teams. I will be a ghost and the 12th player on the pitch and do my best for our team,” police in the southeastern city of Pusan quoted the note as saying.—CNNSI.com
If nothing else, I suppose that’s one less soccer fan to worry about starting a riot in the future. See? Every cloud really does have a silver lining.
