Evo Morales Defies the FIFA Altitude Ban in the Bolivian Andes
According to CNN World, President Morales, along with his staff, played a 15 minute game against local mountain men. I will leave you with this wonderful quote by President Morales:
"Wherever you can make love, you can play sports."
By the way, the President scored the winning goal. I hope that FIFA President, Joseph Blatter, was given a highlight video. If President Morales can bottle and sell some of that Andean good spirit and attitude at sea level, the world might be a better place. The President didn't say if Viagra was needed in the Andes... :-)
I referenced this incident in the Copa America blog of the New York Times. The post was entitled, "FIFA's Altitude Ban: Is Sepp Blatter High?"
