Soccer Player Gets a Yellow Card for Farting
Most of the time in professional soccer, one player gets a yellow card because he brushes past a player for the opposing team who then immediately flops to the ground and pretends to whither in excruciating pain. But it turns out they can give out yellow cards for other violations, such as passing a little gas at the wrong moment.
The drive to bring good manners back to football has reached new heights after a referee issued a yellow card to a player for "breaking wind" as a penalty was being taken.

The official deemed the act "ungentlemanly conduct" and booked the player responsible. However Chorlton Villa, who conceded a goal on the second take, went on to win the match 6-4 against local rivals International Manchester FC at Turn Moss in Stretford, Manchester, last Sunday. (Guardian)

This is crazy. Everyone knows that if you want to distract someone right before a big shot, whether it's a free throw in hoops or an important putt, you yell "Noonan" loudly at the last second. What, soccer players haven't seen Caddyshack?
