Thought we couldn't put a sports spin on the recent revelation that Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, the son of the dictator of Equatorial Guinea, had commissioned a yacht with a movie theater on board? Wrong.

The yacht has two heli-pads, two swimming pools, a disco hall, a mini-submarine, a missile defense system, a laser shield, and one very insecure captain.
