Pourquoi, Zidane?

Why indeed!

Was it the power of language? Or just pent up frustration with the Italian defensive backs?

We may never know. Rumor has it that he was called a 'dirty terrorist,' but is that sufficient reason to head butt someone in the sternum?

Sad. The shot of Zidane exiting the field and going past the trophy on his way down the stairs...almost like a Werner Herzog movie.

I also read of rumors that the slur had something to do with Zidane being part Algerian.

Herzog, eh? Hmmm, I could see that framed in 16 mm. You've probably heard of Herzog's latest project (I think in Wired): re-imagining a story behind some NASA footage, and footage of deep sea divers.

I've got two coming soon from Netflix--before I think of the new one I must see the entire angst-ridden catalog.

But that concept sounds brilliant.
