World Cup Madness in Thailand & Cambodia

Where the Buddhist monks are staying up late to watch the games. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060621/od_nm/thailand_monks_dc_1

What the article fails to mention is in Thai Buddhism, being a monk is not usually a life-long vocation. Young men join the monkhood for a few months before they get married, or as a temporary retreat. Older men may retire there. Middle-aged men may use it as a vacation from wife & kids.
