"Football priest shocks referee"

As I've said before, priests are human, and sports tend to elicit some deep seeded elements of our humanity.

From Afrik.com:

A footballer priest from Burkina Faso shocked spectators when he angrily threw his shirt at his referee in a match held at the Vatican City. In its efforts to curb football violence in Italy and to give the game a positive facelift, Italian sports officials hope the clericius Cup – an international football tournament including Catholic priests and seminarians – sets an example. Paul the Apostle’s College (where the priest played) was eliminated due to the priest’s actions. (Monday 10 March - 16:28)
