Not Prince Hamlet

The World Cup is over, and NPH is sad. We're sad for the losers, France. We're sad for the French star, Zidane, who lost his head in the overtime period and headbutted an Italian player and thus got sent off. He missed the penalty shootout, and he wasn't even a part of the medal ceremony. And that's how his great career ends.

 We're sad for the wife, who is nearly in tears over the French defeat.

But mostly we're just sad that it's over. I don't care how American you are, how much baseball or football or Nascar you watch, the World Cup is the greatest sporting event in the world. Now that it's over, I sort of feel like a 10 year old when the amusement park closes.
