Lightning strike blamed for N. Korea’s soccer loss to U.S.

If you’re a real American, you’re hoping lightning will strike for the U.S. team competing in the 2011 Women’s World Cup.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Il made a lot of pro golfers sick when he scored 11 hole in ones the first time he ever played golf.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Il made a lot of pro golfers sick when he scored 11 hole in ones the first time he ever played golf.

Unfortunately for the dozen or so North Korean “football” fans, their team’s first round loss to the U.S. was due to literal lightning striking their team during training.

North Korean coach Min Kim said members of his squad were “hospitalised with electrocution” but still managed a good game, according to an article by the BBC.

Oddly, there was no mention of the lightning strike, which allegedly occurred June 8, until after Tuesday’s 2-0 loss.

How did the U.S. score two goals?

The North Korean goalkeeper was likely feeling a little frazzled after her gigajoule jolt.

“The goalkeeper and the four defenders were most affected [by the lightning],” said coach Kim, without naming names. “The physicians said the players were not capable of participating in the tournament.”

Amazingly, they not only participated, they almost won, except for that part about not scoring on the non-electrocuted American goalie.

“The fact that they played could be called abnormal, the result of very strong will,” said Kim.

The coach is as good at making excuses as his Dear Leader is at golf.

Please proofread before posting. Regarding the “lightning strike”, Il is a complete idiot. If Il were to come to America he would be beaten down in the street.

National Geographic has an excellent documentary on North Korea. The personality cult is so strongly ingrained into the people that they will praise him while their children are starving. Shows you what the ultimate result of governmental control of the press and education can lead to.

Kim Jong Ill looks like a cross between Don King and Sponge Bob Squarepants. What a useless country.

I was in Korea to perform for our troops & Americans in Seoul Korea. My show was cancelled because this idiot, bombed a portion of S. Korea that same week.

Kim took that from me, but I was still able to perform in other Asian countries & will always remember the smiles & hugs of the Korean children that embraced me at the elementary school I was a guest speaker at, the day after thanksgiving.

I don’t wish anyone ill-will or nourish rancour or scorn,but Kim is communist scum, that pretax on fear, weakness, & intimidation & has tricked every north Korean into accepting his ideology & will not allow any of them to leave….in my opinion…Kim is evil & manipulative & can eat it & choke on it.

As forrest would conclude….that’s all I have to say about that

How different is the U.S. press’ failure to inform the public and the world (which probably knows anyway) that only the Roman Catholics on the Supreme Court illegally cheated a homosexual (James Guckert/”Jeff Gannon” – $200/hr homosexual prostitute overnighting at the WH often) draft-dodger into office, where he committed 9/11? Viz. “The New Pearl Harbor,” Griffin, Ph.D. (a free scholarly peer-reviewed downloadable book on Google Scholar) Or that his father led the CIA operation which assassinated President Kennedy? Or that his grandfather was money conduit from America’s Roman Catholic collection plates through Vatican banker Rockefeller to the author of “I Paid Hitler,” Fritz “The Rockefeller of Germany” Thyssen? There is but one G-d. Truth is not a joke anywhere.

Shocking!. This moron probably had a team of neutered men playing on the womens team. They were the ones hit by lightening and had to be replaced by real women soccer players for the tournement. Kim Jong makes me ill.

Hey now, go easy on those N. Korean soccer players and coach – They and their families will likely be severely punished for losing. I have seen in documentaries on netflix that the punishment for very simple honest mistakes often mandates that the offender AND three generations of their immediate family get sent to work camps (pretty much like the nazi work camps of WWII) and likely never leave. Don’t disrespect those players – they are probably trying to save their own lives. Here in america, we live like kings comparatively. Be thankful for what you have.
