I'm not sure if word of this has gotten around, but apparently Africa has a really bad AIDS problem. That's why it's good to know that so many young Africans are using condoms… to hold their socks up when they play soccer.
As part of their pre-match kitting up, some Cape Town soccer players are slipping on condoms on their feet, so that their socks can stay up longer during matches.
These creative sportsmen have discovered an innovative way of using condoms to secure and keep up their football socks, in the absence of expensive soccer socks, elastic or rubber bands.
Hmmmm… well, I guess I understand. As long as it keeps soccer from spreading any further around the world.
