Biden Goes to China, Massive Brawl Ensues

by Daniel Foster

The Veep is wheels down in China, and the next thing you know the Georgetown Hoyas — in country for a goodwill tour — are brawling with a Chinese semi-pro team during an exhibition game. Okay, so the one didn’t (necessarily) cause the other, but it’s a strange coincidence, no? 

This (admittedly partisan) account suggests things reached a boiling point after three quarters of comically lopsided foul calls against the Americans. It brings to mind the men’s World Cup last year and the rankly biased officiating.
