Sleeping on the job is bad enough. Sleeping on the job while an entire nation watches? Well, that may be a career killer.

Dong Lu, a commentator with China's LeTV, has been fired after he fell asleep and snored while broadcasting a Champions League match between Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

Dong lost his battle with consciousness around the 80th minute, which occurred around 5 a.m. local time.

Dong, who's been doing commentary for two decades, was let go after the incident.

The match sounded more like a nailbiter than a snoozer, with Real Madrid winning 1-0 and advancing to the round of 16.

If we were a snarky comedian, we'd be inclined to say no one has been this asleep on the job with their country watching since President Bush handled Hurricane Katrina. But we're not a snarky comedian, so we'll skip it.
