Spoiler Alert

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.

What a way to end a career.

No kidding. I kind of hope he'll come back for Euro '08 just so he doesn't have to leave a sour taste in everyone's mouth...

Love the Louganis line.

Despicable though head-butting may be, it still beats the hell out of France's usual form of conflict resolution: surrendering.

Now, now Mike....there was also that time when the French fought Henry V and lost. Gotta give 'em credit for that.
