Gooooaaaallll - the Death of Richard Swanson

A cretin with a dream of dribbling a soccer ball 10,000 miles while walking from Washington state to Brazil for the World Cup in 2014 was struck by a truck and killed in Oregon just two weeks into his journey. This is fitting, as his gesture was as pointless as his death. On the bright side, he won't have to attend the World Cup in 2014.


  1. There was a wonderful symmetry to this, I thought.

    There's a "blue balls" joke in there somewhere, but I can't seem to winkle it out of its shell.
