"The orgasmic experience of sports commentating"
From Reuters: Nanjing pensioners react badly to Brazil exit. Excerpt:

An elderly Chinese man went on a rampage in Nanjing after Brazil's defeat to France in the World Cup quarter-finals last weekend.

The man ran amok in a city square hitting people with a stick and shouting" "The Brazilians lost! There is nothing worth watching! I don't want to watch any more games!"

The man was arrested by police but not until after he had grabbed a bystander and bit him "fiercely", the Nanjing Morning Post reported.

Another pensioner in China's former capital was similarly distraught and was arrested for running around the streets naked carrying a banner reading "Brazil Must Win".

Meanwhile in Beijing, San Lian Life Week editor Wang Xiaofeng (formerly Massage Milk) has posted an remix of football commentator Huang Jianxiang's impassioned commentary on the Italy - Australia match, mashed up with a rap metal song. You can listen to the mashup on this post on Wang's blog: Experience orgasm like a man
