[CentralOH] Ugliest Line of Python Ever?

I think I just typed the ugliest line of python code in iPython
ever?... and I don't mind sharing it since you might get a chuckle out
of it:

In [18]: datetime.datetime(*[ int(x) for x in (game.gametime -
datetime.timedelta(hours=24)).strftime('%Y %m %d 12 0').split()])
Out[18]: datetime.datetime(2010, 10, 27, 12, 0)

I was trying to create a datetime object for twelve noon on the
previous day before the game.
(game is the DB object and game.gametime should be pretty obvious)

I'm going to split it up for readability but I'm still don't have a
better way to do this.
