For someone who isn't a football fanatic, the FIFA World Cup Final swept me off my feet. I learnt from my 'learned' football friends that this was one of the better finals ever played. All credit to Italy for having brought renewed interest to the games they played, especially post the quarters. France did extremely well too... I must say I felt terrible about Zidane's exit. No player deserves to be shown the door in his last game. 'Dirty Terrorist' or not. For a player of his calibre, you expect him to not give a shit and show who is boss. He might just be remembered as the guy who "butted" his way out of a WC Final and that's not what the script should read. Not now. Not ever. But, life does go on... and Kudos to Italy!
P.S.: God, if you can hear me, please send Toni and Totti home.
