It is now a fact, Honduras is the most dangerous place on the planet to play soccer!
Teams turn up for their games with their boots, shirts, balls, etc, but never forget their revolvers, Kalasjnikovs and hand grenades.
Before the kit men pack the kit bags they always have to make sure that enough weapons are stashed away in the team bus, it part of the "fair play" game in Honduras.
It seems that betting cartels, hooligans, drug-dealers, street gangs, etc, love the game so much that they all want a piece of the "real" action.
Recently a Charity footie game ended up with 14 people being shot dead which was being played for the benefit of homeless street kids!
If the result goes the wrong way then one set of fans start shooting at the other, people get shot, players defend themselves with their revolvers tucked down their shorts and the Referee, dressed in a bullet proof vest, does a runner!
The "Shooting Footie" game has become so popular in Honduras that there are plans to introduce a "Footie Shoot out World Cup" with accompanying computer game and the first host nation will be Colombia with the final in Bogota (they love a good shoot out), it promises to be a pretty explosive affair.
Several countries have registered their teams: The Somalian Pirates, Colombian Coke Heads, Al Qaeda Bombers, UK Heavy Hooligans, Russki Shaven Skinheads, Bolivian Bovver Boys, Elite Iraqi Insurgents, South African Soweto Slumdogs, etc, etc!
The new slogan is:
