North Korea women’s World Cup coach claims team was struck by lightning

The headline:  North Korea blame loss to U.S. on players getting struck by lightning

The summary:  Following a 2-0 loss to the United States in their World Cup opener, the North Korea women’s coach told reporters that several members of the team were struck by lightning and affected their performance in the game.

The reaction:  Of all the reasons I’ve heard for a team losing an important game, the team getting struck by lightning has to be a first.

Who knows if this is really true or not.  I feel more comfortable saying that the players on the team are probably at risk for being physically tortured by their government for losing than saying they were struck by lightning.  Plus, as the article mentions, it’s quite ironic that this information only comes out after a World Cup loss.
