Stampede at soccer match in Ghana kills at least 100

You know, in North America, we get our shorts in a knot when baseball fans in Minnesota throw batteries at outfielders, but that sure pales in comparison to all the tragedies surrounding soccer matches. The strange thing is that no country seems safe from soccer-related violence. No matter where the game is played, rabid fans and hooligans coalesce into a frightening mob and wreak havoc. How many people have to die before the organizations that run the sport take some responsibility? Maybe the problem is that soccer is so boring to watch, people get restless too easily. (We have that problem with baseball, too, but that's why they sell beer)
