On Saturday, Benin's national soccer team, the Squirrels, defeated Sierra Leone 2 to 0, qualifying them to enter the African Cup of Nations. This is the first time Benin has ever gotten into the tournament. I asked a taxi driver why the team was called the Squirrels. He said they chose the name because they're small but nimble, like Benin. This was believable enough that I decided to assume it was true.
