World Cup Soccer, Thuggery, and Ultrarunning

For our soccer aficionados, courtesy of the blog Pharyngula:
Tired of the World Cup? Move to Somalia! The mullahs have declared that anyone watching sports on television is un-Islamic, so now thugs wander about, beating up or killing anyone caught watching the World Cup.

BBC news story here.

I'm wondering if they have enough help, or whether they're looking for a few more good thugs. I'd apply but I have a problem with thuggery and narrow-mindedness and people controlling the lives of others.

Good thing Ultrarunning is not a TV sport, lest all the couch potatoes get beaten by the thugs.
