World Cup Breaking News Spoof - Vegas was taking bets on which team would be eliminated first at the World Cup for violating regional laws, many pegging France or the Italians.
But very few had put a wager on tiny Belgium being the first team eliminated from the World Cup for violating the local law of having too many men in the shower at the same time, directly after their 1-0 win against Canada in their Group play on Day 4, paying 75/1 odds for the violation.
It seems the team exceeded the local rule of 15 men together in a shower at the same time, 'No matter how many nozzles the shower has,' explained Baz Bahhati, our local rules official on bathroom laws.
Regardless, the Belgium team seemed to have at least 23 'nozzles' in their shower after their gritty win against a Canadian team that mostly kept their signature ass-slapping to a minimum.
"That was well played on their part," said LeBlur DeMuir, the Belgium captain. "We honestly thought the Canadians would be kicked out by half time for butt-slapping. Anyone who knows soccer knows that France and Canada are quite serious about their butt slapping...The Americans too, also big time butt-slappers. So it's kinda crazy that we are the ones getting the boot for having too good of a time, I mean, too many men, in the shower....plus the guy counting from the local courts, who seemed to be enjoying himself when I sprayed champagne in his face," added DeMuir.
So, let that be a warning to the remaining coaches, make sure you do a hard and firm nozzle count in the shower during the victory celebrations while you are in Qatar. They are not fooling around with their nozzles there. And they certainly don't want you to be fooling around with yours, either.
