Not funny

I don’t know if this video (of a drunken referee being led off the field in Belarus) was uploaded to YouTube for its alleged amusement value, but it’s actually pretty sad.

Perhaps the saddest thing of all is that the kids on the field keep practicing as if this is an ordinary event in their lives– which, for some of them, it probably is.
