Getting a Feel for the Insanity that is North Korea

And on the same day, this story suggesting a U.N. Security Council decision may force them to go to war.

All that aside, the lads played a solid game against tournament favorite Brazil.  This was even a touching moment as Jong Tae-Se shed some tears during the national anthem.

I'll keep you posted on the latest goings-on with one of my new favorite teams from the most insane country on the planet.
