Not Prince Hamlet

"Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse."

Marco I-think-you're-an-idiot Materazzi

Wednesday, July 12, 2006

The player who got head-butted by Zinedine Zidane in the World Cup final has admitted to insulting him. Yesterday must have produced six different versions of what it was that Materazzi said to the Frenchman, ranging from "Terrorist" to "I'd rather have your wife's shirt." It's all speculation, because Zidane's not talking. Good for him.

But today Materazzi is talking. A little. "I did insult him, it's true," Materazzi said. "But I categorically did not call him a terrorist. I'm not cultured and I don't even know what an Islamic terrorist is."

Uh, excuse me? Materazzi doesn't know what an Islamic terrorist is? And he attributes that to his lack of culture?

That kind of fib is an insult to thinking people everywhere.
