What can you say? I don't know what Materazzi said to Zidane, but it was hard to root for France after the red card. It's certainly fitting that Grosso clinched it, given what a key role he'd played in Italy's march to the final. Overall, the match was really exciting. Buffon's save on Zidane in overtime was superb. The French certainly had their chances. But Zidane ended up throwing some away. I hope it was worth it for him.

I totally agree. I was talking to a friend on the phone and we said he head butted him in the heart. Granted, he must have said something awful, but my god...

He'd been trying all day to get under Zidane's skin. And Zidane, who isn't known for diving, had fallen repeatedly in their interactions. But, still. It must have been really awful. I had an empty feeling for the rest of the match. Indeed, I resigned myself to an Italian victory, because it seemed that the fates would no longer smile on les Bleus.
