Say what you will about this year’s World Cup. There were many good games, memorable teams, and (of course) unforgettable moments. Maybe the US can get a truly competitive team together for 2010? Maybe this is the beginning of the boom of soccer as a spectator sport in America? (In plenty of places it’s surpassed spectator sport and transcended into the religious realm.) I’m definitely left with a thirst for more soccer. Anyone up for heading to South Africa in ’10?
And as for that headbutt — THE Headbutt — everyone has a comment. I direct you to a humorous piece from the BBC: 10 things to do on the last day of your career. ZZ really can play some hardball. Thoughts?
