Zidane = stupid

I learned the word for stupid in French on Sunday! Hooray!

Zidane, the guy who made me secretly root for France in a predominantly Italian backing room by showing some crazy-ass fancy stuff in the previous games up to the final of the World Cup 2006, is stupid for doing that headbutt and getting a red card in the last game he’ll ever play (he announced his retirement before the match). What a way to end a career… and he ended up making me root for Italy, just like this woman named Lindsay.

So, maaybe what was said to him by that Italian player really, really sucked.  But these guys are professional football players.  Don’t they shit-talk to each other all the time?
