Romanian soccer player traded for a delicious hunk of meat

meat.jpgI've longed for the American public to accept soccer into the fold for a long time. The acquisition of David Beckham hasn't exactly done the trick, but I still hold out hope. And the fact that a Romanian club traded a player for 30 kilograms of tasty meat can only help the acceptance process.

That's right. Romanian second division soccer club UT Arad sold a player in exchange for 15 kilograms of meat. But the trade isn't as tasty as for the meat givers as they hoped.

"Fourth division Regal Horia made a bad deal because defender Marius Cioara decided to end his footballing career and take off to Spain to find a job in agriculture or construction.

"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.

Talk about biting off more than you can chew.
