I just watched the Iraqi men’s soccer team win over Portugal, 4-2. Wow. While I’m not a big sports fan (unless it’s hockey or lacrosse) I couldn’t help but root for these poor fellas who went through so much to do what they love – even under the horrible rule of Saddam and his kids these fellas endured torture and pain to play a game they loved. And now they’re winning at the Olympics.

All you overpaid athletes take note: these men are better than you will EVER be with your millions of dollars and fancy trainers.
