FIFA, the governing soccer body on Wednesday said that it has ended all investigations and dismissed all allegations against North Korean national soccer body after accepting 'explanation' from Pyongyang. Allegations like the North Korean national team coach and players were humiliated publicly and sent to some 'punishment' after their debacle in the recent football World Cup.

In a letter, North Korea???s national soccer association ???assures FIFA that Mr. Kim Jong-hun, head coach of the national team, and all the other members of the national team are training..."

You must rack up a lot of airmiles, Soumen.

But hey, are you a Spider-man fan?

Remember what J. Jonah Jameson would always say?

Peter Parker would walk in with some rambling nonsense story, JJJ would say "PARKER, GET ME SOME PICTURES!!!"

Soumen, we don't have time to care about North Korean sports unless you entice with some candid comedic photos of Kim Jong Il.

Keep up the great work. You are the best, Soumen.

@Yoda: We really need to put our attention to that country. They still have these concentration camps. More that half the people die in that country of hunger and poverty. No can say even a single word against their regime. And even Sports is also suffering, so we should do something for them in our own way to grab attention of the world for that country. As for that Kim Jong 1 or 2 whatever, I am not interested. Thanks again for your comment.

I know, I know. Don't go getting too serious on me, now I like talking to you when I'm baked.
I was just suggesting that sometimes a photo (even a funny photo) will capture our attention at first and then pique our interest to read about some of the more important issues.

If we didn't have you on the front lines, risking your life wandering around in the de-militarized zone to get us some photos, the politicians would be able to keep all of their polices completely hidden. Some people shoot with machine guns, while you shoot with you telescopic zoom lens.
Thanks again.
