Some international tidbits

Did you hear Colombia has cracked down on the rights of visiting fans in their league. No wearing team shirts, carrying banners or club flags.

I guess too much violence caused the move, but I can't see it preventing further hooliganism.

Also, Muslims aren't too partial to a Schalke anthem and apparently enough outcry has forced the team into considering some action.

I guess the song says the Prophet Muhammad knew nothing about soccer but favors the colors blue and white (those of Schalke).

Interesting...
