Maradona appointment remains unbelievable for many (WARNING: In poor taste)

I sympathize with his friends and family for their loss, but this Maradona thing really can take your breath away. (winces, ducks, barrel rolls out of way of incoming lightning bolt)

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) – Pedro Pompilio, the president of Argentine Boca Juniors soccer club, died Thursday of a heart attack. He was 55.
The Argentine Football Association confirmed the death. Pompilio, who took over as president of Argentina’s most popular club in December, had played an important role in the team’s administration since the 1980s. He was vice president of the club from 1995 to 2007.
The club suspended all activities for mourning, including the first division’s scheduled training session, according to local press reports.
