I'd like to share with you a little gem I heard on the radio last
>night. It concerns a match played last weekend between Barbados and
>Grenada in some cup competition. Barbados needed to win the game by
>two clear goals in order to progress to the next round. Now the
>trouble was caused by a daft rule in the competition which stated that
>in the event of a game going to penalty kicks, the winner would be
>awarded a 2-0 victory. (Yes, I'm sure you can all see what's
>coming....) With 5 minutes to go, Barbados
>were leading 2-1, and going out of the tournament. Then, when they
>realized they were probably not going to score against Grenada's
>massed defense, they turned round, and deliberately scored an own goal
>to level the scores. Grenada, themselves not being stupid, realized
>what was going on, and then attempted to score an own goal
>themselves. However, the Barbados players started defending their
>opponents goal to prevent this. In the last five minutes,
>therefore, spectators were treated to the incredible sight of a team
>defending their opponents goal against attackers desperately trying
>to score an own goal! Naturally, the game went to penalties, which
>Barbados won...This story is completely true,
>I assure you. Apparently it was being televised live, so I hope to
>see highlights of it soon
