"My work started sending me all these news articles -- that's how I found out I was dead."
-- Spaniard Fernando LaFuente
after his former Irish team, Ballybrack FC, falsely
informed the Leinster Senior League that he had died in a traffic accident, prompting one of its matches to be postponed and others to be preceded by a minute's silence. The club blamed the
miscommunication on a "a gross error of judgment" from someone "who has been experiencing severe personal difficulties unbeknownst to any other members of the club." (RTE Radio via BBC Sport
