The game between France & Mexico in South Africa was notable for a number of reasons. France put in arguably the most abject performance of the tournament, including Nicolas Anelka politely telling Raymond Domenech to fluff himself, with the cherry the player strike shortly thereafter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you should know about the Chilean miners who are quite literally living under rock. The 33 men have been trapped nearly half a mile below the earth in a 500 square feet emergency shelter ever since the mine in Copiapo, Chile collapsed last month. It’s going to be months before workers can drill holes deep enough and wide enough to rescue the men. Months.
