Belgium scrimmage canceled due to traffic concerns | SI.com

The one team that is traveling the shortest distances in the group stage cancels a scrimmage because they don't want to travel 40 miles. Something ironic about that but with transit strikes going on, I sort of get it. Five hours in a bus sucks no matter who you are.
