What is this feeling?

There is a gaping hole in my heart this Monday morning after the World Cup finals.

My life is over.

No more watching games from my desk. No more rousing games of "Rate the Best Looking Team." No more office pools. No more passing hour upon glorious hour with endless World Cup media consumption.


Today, I begin planning for South Africa 2010.

While discussing this, of course, with everyone who has heard of the incident and is looking for my expert opinion:

Sometimes, in the midst of competition, you do really stupid shit (see: grass throwing incident and yellow card of last month). But a head butt? Probably a little extreme there, Zin├ędine Zidane.

Although, I've heard rumors that a racial slur might have been what set Zidane off. Considering his background and the team's history and all of that, it seems feasible. But maybe he just lost his composure.

Whatever the reason...

I'm really getting a thrill out of threatening to head butt people. The vicious head butt has really taken on a whole new meaning.

As you know, sports is all about mental. The Italian got into Zidane's head and Z lost it. I don't care what he was called, you can't lose your head (literally) like he did.
