Robert Littal Presents The Infamous BlackSportsOnline: Soccer Archives

Recently in Soccer Category


And I thought I took the Bulls' loss hard.

Next time you take your favorite team's loss to heart and someone close to you is complaining about how big of a baby you're being over a game played by "guys whose only connection to you is your choice of wardrobe (Thanks for your support, Mom)," show them this story and they will see that you're really not that bad in comparison to some of our international sports brethren.

Seuleiman Alphonso Omondi, a 29 year old man from Kenya, hung himself after his favorite soccer club, Arsenal, of the Champions League, lost 1-4 to the rival Manchester United.

Omondi also almost got into a fight with a guy in the bar where he watched the game after the guy said that Arsenal was going to be able to comeback from a two goal deficit early in the game. While fighting the rivals' fans is pretty normal in America, hanging one's self when the team loses is taking the dedication a little bit too far. If that became common practice over here, the Raiders and Bengals would have shut down already because all of their fans were dead.

Every human on this earth would like to be remembered when they die, and honored, much like they would do for a fallen soldier of the military or a former player's tragic death. If that person is alive, I'm not sure how well that would go over. The story of Tommy Farrer and the honor his former team bestowed upon him is one such story. This is what he looks like now (photo courtesy of the London Daily Telegraph, and yes, he's still alive...):
