The Grass Is Greener


You know how sinkhole dictatorships like Cuba are wary about sending sport teams abroad because some players are sure to defect? Well, the national soccer team of Eritrea went to Kenya to play in a local tournament. Looks like they all defected.

When the team plane landed back home, it was reportedly only carrying the coach and an official.

Nairobi may not be your idea of heaven, but if you’re from Eritrea, it looks real good.
