And they say soccer is low-scoring... how about 149-0?

From ESPN.com

ANTANANARIVO -- Madagascan football authorities plan to take severe action against club Stade Olympique l'Emyrne, who scored a world-record 149 own goals in protest against alleged refereeing bias in a match on Thursday.

I thought this was totally hilarious. I would have imagined that something this bizarre might have happened before, but I guess not. Must have been murder on the goalie's GAA.

Jesus, that's a bit severe, even to get a world record.

Think the coach got fired for that one
