    North Korea blames loss to U.S. on players getting struck by lightning - Dirty Tackle - World Soccer*Blog - Yahoo! Sports

    A couple of second half goals gave the U.S. a 2-0 win over North Korea and a strong start to their Women's World Cup run. The 8th ranked North Koreans have the youngest team in the tournament with an average age of 20. Still, their discipline and skill gave the U.S. a lot of trouble in the first half before controversial starter Lauren Cheney justified her selection by heading in the first goal in the 54th minute and defender Rachel Buehler scored a second in the 76th minute.

    After the match, North Korea manager Kwang Min Kim shocked the congregated press by revealing that his side isn't just the youngest team, but they are also the only team in the tournament that's been struck by lightening.

    Given the secretive nature of the North Korean team, we may never know if this is true or not. The players aren't allowed to speak to the press, their training sessions are protected by security guards and closed to outsiders and their public appearances regularly get canceled. Plus, it is curious that Kim only mentioned this freak occurrence after his team lost.

    If it is true, a lightning strike that injured four defenders and disrupted their training could explain why their back line seemed to fall apart in the second half after holding the U.S. scoreless in the first. But even if it's not true, it's still a tremendous excuse that others might now try in everyday life.

    LMAO!!!!

    The comment section had this gem:

    "We know the lightning story cannot be true because we all know from cartoons that you would have frizzy hair & your face would be black with a confused look."


    Frizzy hair..confused look...HEY! I know that look!

    I like the lightning excuse but im gonna go with the fact that there whole team was between 16 - 20, and they were all about 100 pounds (soaking wet). Every time one of them had the ball someone from the USA would just jog on over and muscle them off the ball.
