Giant Catfish Dies Trying to Eat Football (Der Spiegel, 7/01/08)

A giant catfish died trying to eat a soccer ball and was found floating in a river with the ball wedged in its large snout, police in Germany said.

The two-meter long fish was found on Monday in a sluice in the Main River with its teeth sunk into the blue and white plastic ball.

You were supposed to attack the players and fans, not the ball.

No oj, you're supposed to attack the ball. Regardless of whose shins are in the way.

Then you kick it away from the goal and out of bounds while he writhes on the ground in mock agony (only to jump up perfectly fine once you've been given a red card).
