    Why Zidane Did It

    For those who don't remember, at the World Cup this year, Frenchman Zinedine Zidane laid out Marco Materazzi of the Italian squad with a textbook headbutt to the chest after a verbal exchange that many thought included barbs (no Steve Irwin jokes please) about Zidane's mother or being a terrorist (which he's not). Well Materazzi finally fessed up. And it had nothing to do with Zidane's mother.

    How is that a provocation?

    Did his shirt stink that bad?

    I am at Zidane's side. Don't ask me why.

    This made me laugh more than any joke could.

    Edit- Maybe he just really hates Kuja

    One day when sport becomes once again “a game†not “business†you'll realize why he did it.

    Probably akin to describing the janet Jackson fiasco to a Thai person...if you're not there, and not into the sport...you may not have heard of it...

    I don't know jack **** about soccer. But that was an awesome headbutt nonetheless.

    Haha, I can imagine Materazzi doing it with Zidane's sister and Zidane doing it with Materazzi's sister (if he has one)

    Well I don't see how anyone who frequents the internet could not remember all those flash animations, games, YTMNDs and so on...

    I still don't get it, I can't see what it was about that exchange that made him headbutt the guy. I mean, I can't really understand what that whole shirt business was about and that stuff about his sister sounds about as serious as a "your momma" joke. Is it just that Italians are more touchy about that sort of thing? Like, if I said "your momma" in Italian would I get headbutted?

    I didn't know that... I didn't even know if Materazzi had a sister or not.

    Materazzi was hanging all over Zidane's jersey, and it annoyed him I guess.

    If you've been running for an hour and a half, the last thing you want is a sweaty Italian hanging all over you.

    Is there a time when an Italian is not sweaty? (Hey, I'm one, I can say it.)
