"Some stayed in hospital and then came to Germany later than the rest of us. The goalkeeper and the four defenders were most affected, and some midfielders as well. The physicians said the players were not capable of participating in the tournament.

Five sports that (to me) are much more interesting to me when played by women:

Tennis

Volleyball

Curling

Soccer

Softball (College, heterosexual.)

Very typical of such regimes. They invariably blame their usual failures on supernatural events and/or acts of God, which somehow, miraculously, do not affect capitalist regimes.

Stunning! Blue/Green eyes with dark hair is one of the most
beautiful combinations there is. I cannot believe that women
blessed with this combination lighten their hair.
