Who's Stupid Idea Was This?

The Egyptian soccer team is competing for the African Nations Cup title in Ghana and doing really well, but today, a Reuters photographer had this to report from the Egyptians' practice session:

Egypt's players sacrificed a cow during a training session on Friday to bring them luck at the African Nations Cup.

The players surrounded the cow when it was released on to the field and pulled it to the ground before one of them killed it by stabbing it in the neck.

Team sources said the ritual was to bring them luck and that the meat would be donated.

What a moronic thing to do. Wrong time, wrong place, wrong sacrifice. Why did they do this???????????

Who was the dickhead who let them do this? Do they realize how bad this makes them look?
