    What kind of a report is this? Did Vietnam really win or not? Please check you report title.

      Iran won over Vietnam, but unfortunately Iran had no bag. So, Vietnam, who always has a bag among its players, was the one who bagged the win. Get it? As they say, mag-isip-isip ka naman pag may time ;). All hail to PDI for reports that make us think!!!!

        What do you mean by “unfortunately Iran had no bag” and “Vietnam, who always has a bag among its players, was the one who bagged the win”?
        I think there really is an error on the headline. “Bag” on the headline was not even figurative but used as a verb.

        Seriously, now, as you request. You are of course correct that the header is wrong. My comment/response to silvershade was meant to be sarcastic. That’s why I laughed so hard at your taking my comment seriously. I am, of course, also considering that you were joking in taking my comment “seriously.”
