I suppose that in a World Cup beset by diving and horrible refereeing, it's somewhat appropriate that the Italians - masters of the dive - won. Seriously, I think I saw Greg Louganis celebrating in a blue jersey on the sideline after the game ended.
Also, one wonders - will head-butting now become an acceptable form of conflict resolution among the French? I sincerely hope so, since that would make any future trip to France that much more entertaining. Rude waiter? Head-butt his ass into the escargot.
