"Stabæks Mikkel Diskerud (20) reiser til Sør-Afrika fredag for å slutte seg til det amerikanske A-landslaget i fotball."

Near as I can tell, Starbucks is sending Mikkel Diskerud to South Africa in exchange for a woman of loose morals.

How much does the S.A. domestic league pay? MLS couldn't afford Tshabalala? I know pretty much diddly squat about the international transfer market, but I thought he had more in the tank than say, Boyzzz.

@I-270Exit1, that's an instant classic. Thanks for the chuckle.
