Materazzi Writes the Final Chapter on Zidane Affair. Well, probably notBy: Bob | October 9th, 2006
It was three months ago today that Zinedine Zidane head butted Marco Materazzi in the final of the World Cup. It seems like just yesterday, doesn’t it? Perhaps the reason why is because the incident – one that really did not directly decide the outcome of the game, but that is a minor detail – just continues to live on as a parody of itself.
The latest chapter in this never ending saga comes from Marco Materazzi, who has penned a book of jokes entitled, What I really said to Zidane. Materazzi has put together 249 phrases that he apparently thinks are clever and packaged them into a 100-page book that he wants you to buy.
“As you will see, dear reader, I found it funny to explore the absurdity of the whole affair,” Materazzi writes as part of his column in an Italian daily newspaper.
An example of this exploration of absurdity? Try this one of for size:
“Zinedine, what are you up to? You haven’t lost yet … and you’ve already shaved your head!”
The book is not available on Amazon yet so you are going to have to wait just a bit longer before you read it cover to cover. As for Zidane, he hasn’t penned a book yet, but I’d like to suggest a working title, The 100 Best Ways to Skin Marco Materazzi Alive.
