Congratulazioni Italia!

Zidane
Exciting World Cup finish today, utterly fascinating World Cup. I’m not a fan of the Penalty Kick off, but hey, a game has to end somehow.

I am quite curious to find out what really happened with Zidane — I’ll bet there is more to the story than we know right now.

Regardless, Italy toughed it out, and deserve to hoist the championship trophy . . .
