I know the talking point will be about Zidane's needless and undeniably idiotic heatbutt on Marco Metarazzi (and Metarazzi must've said something intense), but lets be honest the Italians did play a better game and well the sight of Zidane walking back to the dressing room head down will be a bad way to remember the world cup, this is a time to celebrate Italy. Of course, we in India have been celebrating Italy for the last two years after having voted an Italian into power, but lets look at the nice things in Italy like Pizza, Pasta, AC Milan, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Versace, good Italian shoes, Lemon Cello, Capri, Amalfi, Venice, Vesuvius, the Autostrade, Flavio Briatore, Milan, Sicily, Corleone and so and so forth.
Tonight in celebration I'm ordering lots and lots of Pepperoni Pizza. Congratulations to Marcello Lippi and his team and their absolutely fantastic defence led by my player of the tournament Fabio Cannavaro (ZZ was brillinat - but...), I'm just sad that my favourite Italian player of the recent past - Paulo Maldini wasn't on the team.
Brillianto to Italy. Now bring on the Pizza!
