How Long Must Africa Suffer?

Africa just can't catch a break. Just when you think they are getting out from under the oppresive yoke of colonialism, apartheid, and Idi Amin, another tradegy has befallen them. The CEO, aka Djibril Thiam, tore his ACL and is out for the season. Hopefully he can get a medical redshirt and still play a full four years at the B.

The effects were felt immediately in Senegal. The CFA Franc, Senegal's currency, exchange rate dropped 20% and President Abdoulaye Wade declared December to be a national month of mourning. And in a nearly unprecented move there is also talk of delaying next year's Ramadan for only the second time for a sports-related injury.
