World Cup Final - Wogs Versus Frogs

Italians vs French. Much as I don't like the French I wanted to see them win. Can't stand the Italians. They dive more often than kamikaze pilots. The French are somewhat arrogant themselves.

I'd love to know what Marco Materazzi said to Zinedine Zidane to upset him. He was being very chatty. It was probably along the lines of "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries." But, that is more along the lines of taunting of a Frenchman than a French taunting. It must have been in Italian considering Zizu used to play in Italy. Headbutts at any time are not acceptable behaviour however and the red card he received was justified.

Who wrote the script for Italy to win on penalties? How odd. How extraordinary. How much rotten bad luck for me to record the final on video, set it up for extra time, and have the recording finish just before the penalty shoot-out occurred. Mind you, as soon as I stopped the video I was able to view the highlights of the penalty shoot-out on the news.

That's it for the next four years. Sleep deprivation is over for a while. Except the next World Cup will be held in South Africa and the same time zone as Germany. Something to look forward to.

Ooooh, I hate it when they go into extra time, and the tape stops at the crucial moment!
