(The referee might not be so cavalier if he knew Legat had a sword!)
In fairness, Legat wasn’t the guy who started the trouble. The former Werder Bremen and Schlake star was in his car outside of his neighborhood McDonalds when he and his wife were threatened by your everyday, average German street gang. To scare them off, Legat promptly pulled his samurai sword from his boot (we didn’t know that was even possible) and started waving it around to scare off the alleged “group of youths”.
The problem is that, at one point, Legat’s sword actually made contact with someone’s head. While it may seem like someone would have lost their head, literally — given that the weapon a samurai sword, after all — the attacker was actually just injured, and promptly sued as a result.
Sure, Germany beat Austria in Euro 2008 action today. But the Austrians can still proudly throw out their chests from a bigger triumph over the weekend, when a group of Vienna vixens busted out a victory over a team of bare Bavarian babes in topless soccer action.
(Perky performers from both teams were quite popular on press row)
REUTERS reports that two teams made up of porn stars erotic actresses met on a sandy pitch along the Danube River last Sunday. The ladies’s on-field kit was nothing more than painted-on jerseys & shorts, with some small thongs to keep a lid on any total nudity.
Austria bounced up a 10-5 win over the German g-string divas. But it was pretty rough going for both sides. Read more…
Lukas Podolski was born in Poland, but was ignored by the national team of his home country, and is one of of two prominent Polish players that made the pilgrimage to represent Germany in the quadrennial Euro tournament.

The Sharks, a South African rugby team, slipped an extra man onto the grass for two whole minutes without anyone noticing in their Super 14 match against the Queensland Reds last weekend. The 16th man roamed freely in the Sharks win and made two key tackles. Queensland Reds are protesting now, but you have to catch them in the act, Aussies. So sorry!
Now this is how you catch them in the act:
(Anatomy of a cheater)
The brilliant BALL IN EUROPE spotted ETB Essen trying to secure a promotion to the second division in German basketball by pulling the ol’ Maypole trick on the ref with two seconds left in the game. It’s one thing to sneak a 16th man onto a large field of play; it’s quite another to slip a sixth man back onto a tiny basketball court. Große Hoden, ETB Essen!
VANCOUVER GROUP WANTS BROTHEL BY 2010 OLYMPICS: As Vancouver gets ready for the 2010 Winter Olympics, there’s one vital matter they haven’t prepared for - prostitutes:
The VANCOUVER SUN reports that a group of working girls want to establish a legal brothel by the time the world descends on the Canadian City for the games.The B.C. Coalition of Experiential Communities believes establishing a legal brothel would be a safer alternative for streetwalkers hoping to cash in on the influx of worldly & horny visitors.
A similar sex situation faced Germany during the 2006 World Cup. Although the country legalized prostitution in 2002, there were still concerns about the volume and safety of sexcapades during the tournament.
The BCCEC hopes to get the okay from the government “to permit the first brothel on an experimental basis.”
We’re sure there won’t be a shortage of volunteers for that experiment.

After discussing with police, Nuremberg decided to cancel the sales. The UEFA added that no sales were finalized, and no money was taken from the cockney consumers.The club claimed that a “bug” in their online selling system allowed Everton fans to buy tickets that were allocated for Nuremburg folks.
