Can't play today: it's raining

What it this? Baseball? Golf? Tennis?

Nope. It's the Nigerian women's national soccer team. Three coaches canceled training one day because of the rain.

They got punished promptly by the Nigeria Football Federation president Sani Lulu:
Coaches Uche Eucharia, Ann Chiejina and Monsu Abdullahi were axed when Lulu paid a surprise visit to the team's training camp in Abuja only to discover the women's national team were not training because it was drizzling at the time.
It better have been the drizzle from hell, because that team has a tournament it's preparing for.
