The 36th Chamber of QPR

This was not the Beautiful Game. Nonetheless, I'd have paid good money yesterday to see this mad monkey kung fu brawl between the Chinese Olympic football team and West London ruffians Queens Park Rangers FC. Did no one suspect mayhem when the master killer himself Gordon Liu materialized on the pitch as the Twelfth Man? And to think we thought Shaolin Soccer was just a movie fever dream.

It wasn't the beautiful game, and it was really unfortunate--particularly as I am always excited to see teams and players from China, Japan, and Korea rising in skill and prominence--but I have to say the actual footage of this was, uh, kind of awesome.
