Another reason why baseball is better than soccer

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080915/ap_on_re_af/congo_soccer_riot;_ylt=AqijbbYXG2NzGQSkhdpwbOhbbBAF

At a soccer match in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (NOT to be confused with the much smaller Congo Republic), 13 people were killed when rumors spread that one team was using witchcraft to sway the results.

I mean, we know that George Steinbrenner has made a deal with the devil, but we don’t riot every time the Yankees win a game!

On the other hand, if these rumors ever started spreading while the Yankees were playing in Arlington, Texas or Atlanta, Georgia, one wonders if the same wouldn’t happen.
