I swore to myself I wouldn’t post another word about ‘the headbutt’. But these aren’t my words. They’re joe’s:
even though Zidane’s headbutt was absolutely shameful, I am a huge fan of it. Bad for his legacy, great for soccer. Pardon monsieur, don’t apologize to the children. Are you kidding? Little kids love ramming their heads into shit! Especially into other little kids! Little kids get it, and this thing will only increase their love of the game.
The Headbutt added an incredible flavor and color to a mostly drab World Cup. People who hate soccer are still talking about it. Because it was awesome. The shamefulness of his exit only adds to the incredible audacity of it.
Little kids love ramming their heads into shit! Especially into other little kids! As a father of 4 kids, no truer words… I almost snorted Pepsi out my nose reading that. Too funny. Not that I’m advocating them doing it or anything.
