World Cup to Crack Down on Streaking

HAMBURG, Germany (AP) — Soccer World Cup organizers will seek heavy 
fines for streakers during next year's tournament.

During the recent Confederations Cup (search) there were four instances 
of streaking during the tournament's 16 games.

"You can't assume these so-called streakers will always have peaceful 
intent," Wolfgang Niersbach, vice president of the organizing committee, 
said Friday. "We don't want to imagine, for example, what would happen 
if one had a knife."


What is Herr Niersbach thinking?  Where the hell is a streaker going to 
hide a knife or anything else?
