Hey, just so you know, according to the Egyptian soccer team there are roving bands of prostitutes robbing hotels in Johannesburg, South Africa. They enter the premises through the air ducts, dressed like prostitute Ninjas, and then rob the rooms, slipping out secretly on the bottoms of room service carts. The police are baffled! But they are definitely not being invited there by the players. Nope.
After a report surfaced in a South African tabloid that Egyptian players celebrated their 1-0 win over Italy by inviting hookers to their hotel rooms, Egypt subsequently lost to the U.S., 3-0, and then came back to their hotel to find most of their stuff gone. This of course did not go over well at home, where hookers, booze and especially losing at sports tend to be frowned upon. Who do you guys think you are, A-Rod? Read more…
When the Egyptian soccer team lost $2,400 dollars from a few players’ rooms in South Africa a couple days ago, the head of Egypt’s delegation was unusually quick to lay the blame on the players themselves and not on the host country of the Confederations Cup: “There was some negligence on the players’ part, leaving the money in drawers, and they’ll be getting firm instructions for next time.”
(”Now go back to your room with no prostitutes!”)
Now we may know why: the players might have been getting firm instructions from prostitutes hired after their tremendous upset win over powerhouse Italy and left their drawers down while the female sex workers made off with their cash in a robbery. Well, that’s better; it’s not a security problem but an entirely different kind of crime. See you next year, World Cup fans; bring extra cash for our hookers to steal from you!
Congratulations to Egypt, who pulled off the shock of the Confederations Cup in South Africa yesterday by beating current world champions Italy 1-0 in a group stage match. It was an historic win for Egypt specifically and African soccer in general, as the victory proved that teams from Africa can compete with - and beat - the best teams in the world.
But despite the result, five unnamed members of the Egyptian national team were pretty big losers yesterday. Why? Because as the BBC reports, they had their hotel robbed and about $2,400 in cash stolen while they were playing in the biggest match of their lives. Whoops! Looks like South African officials still have a few kinks to work out before they host the World Cup next year.
