The Biggest Story of the 2014 World Cup Is Probably The Greek Coach’s Nose Hair (Photos)

The following is totally safe for work, but will probably haunt your dreams nonetheless. Just as Luis Suarez can’t control his predatory instincts when it comes to biting Italian rivals, Greece national team coach Fernando Santos simply cannot control his nose hair.

It’s becoming sentient and probably taking on a life of its own. My guess is, by the next World Cup, it will be getting tangled in his shoelaces.

If you were thinking, “Hey, maybe that exxxxtra-long nose hair gives the Greek soccer team special powers, and Fernando isn’t trimming it for the good of the squad,” I’m sorry to say that it doesn’t enable the squad to hit penalty kicks. As such, the Greeks are now homebound, and Costa Rica will be advancing to the quarterfinals at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

And now you might be thinking, “Well, that’s probably just because Costa Rica’s coach has even longer, more luxurious nose hair.”

I have some news for you:

This is Jorge Luis Pinto, Costa Rica’s coach. Virtually no nose hair at all. It’s so smooth. So insanely smooth.
