Heh.

France or Italy, and we're all so excited?

Or perhaps everyone is sitting here in shock saying, how did it come down to these two after their early peformances were so much weaker?

I'm sort of wondering if I should cheer for France.  Do they dive less than Italy?  *laughs*  And I didn't see much of their earlier playing, but their repute is sort of "coming back" for this tournament I hear...

I will be cheering for France, imagine that. I hate Italy (or rather their team), they seem to dive the most and are always so quick to blame others for their own failings.

Heh.  Well that drew lots of commentary.

I for one was under-impressed.  Just too many dubious refs, dives, and teams without an apparent plan of attack.

I'd like to see more African teams.  Ghana should've had a moral victory take them to at least the next round.
They may not have the Sicilian defense or whatever the Italians call it, but they played hard and were all around more interesting for me to watch than many.  Including ahem, Brazil.

At least the final wasn't totally scoreless.  But I didn't think Italy deserved to win it.  And certainly not by someone pinching Zidane's nipple to get him upset and booted if that is part of what happened there.  That's what the Guardian claimed...  American media wouldn't tell us, even if it were obvious in the middle of the replay.  They'd probably censor it. 

Better luck next time?

I hated to see Zidane be sent off like that, I've always liked him and I were cheering for France. Apperantly Materazzi insulted his mother and sister several times during the game, calling them terrorist whores and stuff like that until Zidane finally snapped. If it is true I think Materazzi also should be punished, that sort of things does not belong in a game of football.

Just curious, but is there some particular connection between Zidane and Muslim radicalism? 

(By which I do not mean to say terrorism, that's about as useful as screaming "pornography" in my book even if it were true -- but radicalism could be philosophy more than action, in any case).

*rolls eyes*  That's it?

And here I thought that would be more of an issue _inside_ France...  See what little I know.
