Itay Wins Worldcup 2006
Congratulations team Italia for winning the 2006 Worldcup Championship. I'll take Italy over France in any game. The highlight of this game wasn't controversial but there's more to this story than meets the eye when the French captain, Zinedine Zidane, headbutted an Italian player in the chest which led to Zidane's ejection from the game. From there the Italians went on to win it with penalty kicks, 5-3.
The Zidane headbutt will be talked about for some time. Nobody has said what led to the headbutt nor did it seem a questionable judges call. I guess we can sum it up as a top player losing his cool under pressure. I figure the Italian player must of said something durogatory about Zidane's mother or someething. Clips shown of the headbutt upending the targeted opponent was very cool. Zidane might make a good linebacker in the NFL. I've never seen a headbutt to the chest floor a person like that. I'm sure there was some NBA-like foul acting from the Italian player, but that's sports.
So long Worldcup 2006, just when things began heating up, you broke our hearts by leaving. We hardly knew yah!
