Zinedine Zidane

Absolutely unbelievable. I could hardly believe my eyes when he headbutted Materazzi in the chest. Completely unacceptable behavior for any participant in any sporting event, but so much more unacceptable in the captain of team in a sporting event broadcast worldwide. And in light of the extreme liklihood of penalty kicks, his boneheaded temper is incredibly irresponsible. How could he possibly do that to his team?

Since when did you follow soccer?

I can't feel too bad that it happened, since it helped France lose.

Your final point is (perhaps unintentionally) profound: it is a question of how Zindane could do this TO HIS TEAM. By getting kicked out, Zindane let his entire team down. So did the England played (Rooney) who kicked another played in the crotch. England lost.

Since I've always enjoyed the few games that I could catch without having cable.

And while I'll think about forgiving your amazement at my ability to occasionally produce something profoud, it's still unbelievable to me that he could forget that his team brought him out of retirement to help them win, and he threw it all away.
