Handball Henry

French metric football striker Thierry Henry has admitted to using a handball to score against Ireland's plucky side in a winner-goes-to-the-World-Cup qualifier. The isles are in an uproar, and even the French papers are clear that their World Cup berth was dishonestly gained. The front page of Ireland's Independent newspaper is running the latest update on the scandal: the Football Association of Ireland is asking for the match to be replayed.

Come on FIFA - just think of the ratings this would draw!

and the sporting world in general continues to go nuts in favor of increased use of instant replay...

A horrible idea in metric football. The game is slow and boring enough already! Same for baseball.
