Legion of Doom Nominee: Humberto Muñoz Castro a.k.a. "Gol Gol Gol Gol...!"

Humberto Muñoz Castro is the man who shot the Colombian soccer player Andres Escobar 12 times outside a suburban Medellin nightclub a mere 10 days after Escobar had scored an own goal against the U.S. in the 1994 World Cup. Escobar’s girlfriend testified that the shooter yelled “Gol!” with every shot. The Colombians had dominated South American qualifying leading into the 1994 Cup and were looking to make a real impact in the tournament, but after losing to the Americans they were ultimately eliminated after the first round. It was never made public if the killing was related to the own goal, but my Momma didn't raise no morons. Humberto Muñoz was released from prison earlier this year after serving 11 years of an original 43 year sentence.

To me any man who is fan enough to kill a member of his favorite team, is maniacal enough for the Legion of Doom.

If you idiots don't bother to understand the context of the article (We picked the 12 Worst people in the history of sports) or when it was written (almost four years ago) than maybe you are the losers and the bad-words and whatnot.

Christ almighty. Learning to read isn't about spelling the words on the page; there's also things like "critical thinking" and "understanding context". You should learn them.
