Sports tip for the day

"Football and basketball are sports that require a lot of move-ment and jumping," Sheikh Abdullah al-Maneea, member of the official Supreme Council of Religious Scholars [of Saudi Arabia], said in a religious opinion published in Okaz newspaper Thurs-day. He said such excessive movement may harm girls who are still virgins, possibly causing them to lose their virginity.

Well, I'd say any girl who managed to actually lose her virginity while playing football or basketball at the same time would have to be pretty energetic.....
