I do not watch soccer, but I was in Germany for the 06 World Cup and watched Zinedine Zidane headbutt an Italian player to the ground like a true warrior in the Championship match. This guy is forever my favorite soccer player.

I am a Barca fan, and I know when respect is due. Zinedine Zidane is a legend. Period. When the ovation is at its peak, the best actors leave the stage. Farewell Zizou.
