Funny Football Snippets
An edition of Observer Sport Monthly featured a small item about a Moroccan parachutist. The one who, at the opening ceremony for the 1988 African Nations Cup in Casablanca, watched by royalty and the most
important men in world football, delayed kick-off by missing the pitch and getting tangled up in the floodlights, where he hung upside down for 45 minutes.
During the last Nations Cup in Mali two years ago, there was a full-scale punch-up on the pitch, involving a Cameroon
coach and Malian soldiers. The coach, a former World Cup goalkeeper, had placed a charm in the Mali net. Witchcraft, juju, call it what you like.

Court Ruling from the UK
A seven year old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama yesterday
when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge
initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody law
and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree
possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the
judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that
they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that
domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took
the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have
custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child
welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the England
