Festive Left Friday Blogging: Evo plays ball

In protest of FIFA’s ban on high-altitude soccer games, Evo Morales recently laced up and played a rousing game at altitude, in sight of the beautiful Bolivian Andes:

He played four games in one day, thus proving that altitude is no hindrance. Being used to it is one thing, but maybe coca leaf tea also helped. I think they should start serving it at FIFA games, if they really want to level the playing field.

(And, dang, Evo–cute knees!)
