If you are not familiar with the peculiar postings on MSNBC, you should really check them out. There are many articles that I find extremely funny or perplexing. Consinder the following article I found today:
BUCHAREST - Romanian second division soccer club UT Arad sold a player in exchange for 33 pounds of meat, local sport daily Pro Sport reported on Monday.
However, the deal turned out badly for fourth-division Regal Horia, because defender Marius Cioara decided to end his soccer career and find a job in agriculture or construction in Spain.
“We are upset because we lost twice — firstly because we lost a good player and secondly because we lost our team’s food for a whole week,” a Regal Horia official was quoted as saying by the daily in its electronic edition.
This gives you a new meaning on how much a person is 'worth'.
