Soccer is a dangerous sport

New research shows that soccer is a dangerous spectator sport:
Dr. Ute Wilbert-Lampen and her associates studied cardiovascular (CV) event rates in the Munich area during the month-long World Cup soccer tournament held there in 2006, and compared them with the rates for the same area during several control periods. On days when the German national team competed, CV event rates spiked, particularly among men and among people with known coronary disease.

I'm going to have to stop going to my kids' soccer games.
