I do this deliberately in video games sometimes when I get frustrated, so it was fun to read about it happening in real life. From the news: "In Antananarivo, Madagascar, a championship soccer game got weird after one of the coaches got into an argument with the referee. When the official wouldn't change his decision about a call, the coach lost his temper. In protest, he instructed his team to just kick the ball into their own goal -- which they did, repeatedly. In fact, they did it every time they touched the ball. The other team's players stood around looking bemused, and by the time the final whistle blew, the score was 149-0. That's a new world record for a soccer game. The league is looking into whether they can discipline the team that made itself lose so badly."
