Columbian Police Find World Cup MADE OF Cocaine! In other news, Maradona is distraught at not winning…is this why is became a coach?
July 6, 2010
Now I understand why Maradonna was so upset and why he took the job as coach in the first place.
The Colombian soccer team didn’t make the World Cup, but the country’s police made a great save to intercept a replica tournament trophy made entirely out of cocaine.
The painstakingly engraved statue was painted gold with green stripes on the base to match the real trophy. It was bound, along with several team jerseys packed in the box, for an address in Madrid when it was intercepted in a warehouse inside the airport.
Colombian National Police said the “bad condition” of the gold paint on the trophy’s surface is what tipped them off.
The real World Cup trophy is almost as valuable — cast in solid 18-carat gold — but weighs about ten pounds less.
You have to applaud the creativity of the drug smugglers. Necessity is the mother of invention…
