Materazzi insulted my mother and sister

Zidane said: "I would like to apologise because a lot of children were watching the match. I do apologise but I don't regret my behaviour because regretting it would mean he was right to say what he said.

"There was no tension with Materazzi before or during the match. He just put his hand on to my shirt and I told him to stop. I told him that if he wanted it I could give it to him at the end of the match.

"Then he said very harsh words to me and repeated them several times. I left but then I went back towards him and things went very fast. The words he said concerned my mother and sister. I heard them once, then twice, and the third time I couldn't control myself.

"I am a man and some words are harder to hear than actions. I would have rather been knocked down than hear that."

Materazzi, who scored Italy's equaliser which took the match into extra-time, reiterated that he had not insulted former Real Madrid midfielder Zidane's mother, who had been taken ill on the day of the final in Berlin.

He said: "I didn't mention anything about religion, politics or racism. I didn't insult his mother. I lost my mother when I was 15 years old and still get emotional when I talk about it.

"Naturally, I didn't know that his mother was in hospital but I wish her all the best. Zidane is my hero and I have always admired him a lot."

So.. me still lost 50 bucks. The French suck. And the sun ries and the sun sets.

Life is good.

“I am on the dirt frontage road to the internet thingy”

Take it slow and keep your head up. That way you can see the bullshit coming.
And don’t waste my time calling me a racist, cause I aren’t. So there!
