Comedian makes it "Rain" at Sepp Blatter Presser
Embattled soon to be ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter held a press conference Monday morning to announce the "Soccer" congress that will be held to replace him when he steps down.
Blatter, who's overseen soccers governing body for what seems like an eternity has been a lightning rod for corruption and other charges even before the arrests of multiple FIFA executives. And he stubbornly has refused to admit wrongdoing nor step foot anywhere near the U.S.
And like many other "FIFA" events, Monday mornings presser is likely to be remembered more for the guy who crashed it and showered Blatter with "Bank Notes"

To use an "American Football" term---yes, he made it rain...

Poor Sepp, he had to leave the podium before returning a few minutes later.
And by they way. He did announce the vote to replace him would take place in February. Of 2016.
Guess he's not going anywhere fast.
