Now someone needs to tell them what to do with the balls.

/hint, France, if you're going to hit something with your head, make it the ball, not an Italian player

Why is this strange? The balls aren't going to make themselves.

I dunno, the Italians are the ones that dive, flop, and cheat their way to titles.

It's not a cheapshot to hit someone in the chest. The only thing I regret about that hit is that it didn't happen in the supposed 1/20th of a second where it will stop the heart. Now THAT would've been awesome.

/Materazzi's a piece of sh*t

Remember when your country came begging on it's knees to the King of France for help against the British and the King unzipped?

Good times.

Sad to see that the only way America can get that nasty taste out of their mouth is by bad mouthing the French, without who's help we'd all be speaking proper english instead of ebonicized Git-Er-Dun variant in use today.

/then again, maybe that would have been a good thing

The_Time_Master: Remember when your country France came begging on it's knees to the King of France the U.S. for help against the British Germans and the King unzipped we saved their ass?

Good Tough times.

Sad to see that the only way America can get that nasty taste out of their mouth is by they continued to bad mouthing the French us, without who's help we'd they'd all be speaking proper english instead of ebonicized Git-Er-Dun German instead of the slurred modern French variant in use today.


The reason they're so fun to pick on is because we saved their ass and they continue to biatch about it.

/against the Iraq war, but France still needs to STFU

We'd speak English like Englishmen, who do not badmouth the French?

This is a business article.

That being said, Nike scoring the Les Bleus deal certainly helps in their quest for the global football market.

On a football note, without Zidane, I doubt France will be able to compete.

On another football note, Man Utd is dismantling Newcastle Utd even as we speak.
