The Danes Like To Punch

If the Second War of Schleswig taught us anything, it's that the Danish lack problem-solving skills. Yesterday, during a Euro 2008 qualifier, a Danish player punched a Swedish player in the stomach, and was, of course, red-carded and sent off. Apparently feeling like it should be perfectly legal to punch other players in the stomach, a Danish fan rushed on to the pitch and attempted to punch the referee.

The game itself? Well, we don't know yet. The ref, despite Denmark having battled back and pulled to a 3-3 tie, got pissed off, left the pitch, and awarded a 3-0 win to Sweden. Nice try, but I don't think he can do that. UEFA is reviewing.
