And Another Thing


Another peerless soccer moment

You know that statue of "Rocky" in Philadelphia?

It's got nothing on this.

Seriously, where else but in soccer, and in Europe, would you get something like this? You celebrate a national hero, Zinedine Zidane, by immortalizing his most infamous act? How (weirdly) cool is that?

For comparison purposes, imagine the city of Kansas City erecting a statue of Bernard Pollard taking out Tom Brady's knee. Or the city of Boston unveiling a statue of Kevin McHale clotheslining Kurt Rambis. Or the same city immortalizing, in bronze, Pedro Martinez beating up Don Zimmer.

Like I said: Weirdly cool.
