Now here's a version of soccer that we can all unite around - topless soccer! It was a momentous day this past Sunday when Austria's topless women's soccer team beat Germany 10-5. Organized by of all things an internet chat room, the match was likely low on quality play, but high on quality views. Oh yeah, and good effort too. Sure, it might have been played by porn stars...so?
"I hope our men will take heart from that tomorrow. We played pretty hard, we even had some injuries, like I for example broke my toe nail," 29-year-old bank employee and Team Austria member Doris Fastenmeir told Reuters.Regardless of what happened, nobody seemed to mind. Austria basked in victorious pride, the crowd enjoyed the good views, and the Germans didn't seem so bummed either.
The Germans took defeat sportingly and joined their opponents for alcopops and dancing at a beach club alongside the Danube.Ah, topless soccer. Never again shall we need to ask: "why can't we all get along?"
