Algerian Soccer Player Slaps A Female Sports Reporter Across The Face

World Cup Algerian soccer player Rafik Saifi slapped a female sports reporter across the face with an open palm after his team lost to the United States earlier today. Witnesses say Saifi was walking through the interview area when he saw journalist Asma Halimi, who writes for the Algerian newspaper Competition, in the room. Without saying a word, he struck Halimi in the face; also without saying anything, Halimi responded by hitting him back. Saifi then threw a sports drink at the wall and Halimi left with security. Apparently, Saifi did not like an article Halimi had written in the past. The journalist said she intends to file an official complaint with FIFA, soccer’s governing body, as well as the Algerian team.

WTF, dude? You don’t just walk up to a journalist and hit her in the face because you don’t like an article she wrote? It’s no excuse if you were angry because you just lost a match. Seriously, you’re an adult. Grow a pair and get over it. [Um, also, go USA! -- Editor] [Yahoo Sports] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: South African Women Get 30,000 Free Condoms For World Cup

The “Rape-aXe” condom has tiny hooks on it which attach to an attacker’s penis and can only be removed by a doctor in a hospital, where he would be identified as a rapist.
