Dr. Z on ZZ

ZidaneI haven’t written anything about Zinedine Zidane’s fabulous final flame-out (other than this), because I just couldn’t find the right words.
Imagine my surprise when I found out (thanks to the ACCBasketblog) that football’s own Dr. Z (maybe the best football writer going) knows a bit about futbol as well. Dr. Z’s thoughts about Zidane aren’t too far off from my thoughts. He might be being a bit kind to Zizou, who’s blunder might just top Jean Van de Velde for the dumbest move by a Frenchman in a big sporting moment, but that’s OK. He makes up for it by going after the moronic commentary of Marcelo Balboa. Dr. Z’s the man.
p.s. Check this other angle of the incident – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2slJ9CBnk0 – you’ll see Materazzi reach around and pinch Zidane’s nipple and then run his mouth up until the point where Zizou drops him.
p.p.s. And check these videos of some of Materazzi’s past work – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJPKM5aJGW8 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gyu8W1g2co
