There is some great soccer news out today (found both of them on deadspin). Check this out:
- A Romanian soccer team traded a player to competitor Regal Horia for 33 pounds of meat. Turned out to be a good deal for them too, because the guy they traded — perhaps sensing the inevitable after being swapped for meat — promptly retired. Check out this quote from the team:
- “We are upset because we lost twice — firstly because we lost a good player and secondly because we lost our team’s food for a whole week,” said a Regal Horia official.
