World Cup High Jinks

If you saw any news at all over the weekend, you probably saw this clip from the World Cup Final match, where France's Zidane head-butted Italy's Materazzi and was subsequently thrown out of the game.

Last night Jay Leno had the funniest observation I have yet heard about the incident. According to Leno, Italy...
...won after France's best player got ejected for head butting. That's the closest anyone in a French uniform has come to combat in 60 years. Can you believe that? I mean, the French finally find somebody who's willing to fight, and they kick him out!

UPDATE: Here is another video of the confrontation from a different camera angle, close-up and at field level.
