Good idea: Bolivian President Evo Morales celebrating a new soccer pitch in La Paz by playing in a friendly match between his ruling party and a team led by the capital's mayor and his opposition party.
Bad idea: Evo Morales ruining the spirit by kneeing an opposing player right in the balls after a hard foul -- and then nearly having him arrested after the game. Video after the jump!
The game started out spirited, as you can see in the video, with Morale's team of Movement Toward Socialism lackeys, clad in green, posing for photos with the squad led by La Paz Mayor Luis Revilla, decked out in yellow.
