And Some Round-Ball News: Uruguay’s Suarez Lucks the Hell Out!

This in from ESPN, Uruguay soccer forward Luis Suarez, the one who punched the ball out of the goal in Uruguay’s quarterfinal match against Ghana (and also now known as one of the most despised men in Africa) has received a one game suspension for his actions. Meaning he’ll be out of the game when Uruguay loses to the Netherlands on Tuesday.

Dude, you lucked out! That was an action that kept Ghana from moving on in the World Cup, because that ball would have gone in the goal for sure.  And to get a one-game suspension, and no future FIFA game suspensions, is a very light sentence indeed.

But come on Suarez, if you want to use your hands, just make the jump and play rugby.  Uruguay Rugby could use someone of your cunning on the pitch.
