The Big Letdown

Consider this your advance warning – whatever Zidane explains, nothing will live up to what we perversely hoped Materazzi actually said.  We will all be disappointed.

I am moving on to taking bets on how innocuous the statement actually was. 

Perhaps a slight on Zidane’s waning sexiness.  A snide comment about Marseilles being relatively inconvenient for toursit travel.  Or simply mentioning that Materazzi was the proud owner of deliciously greasy locks and Zidane was a silly little baldy.

I think there will be some groans on the day of the announcement.  A crowded pressroom keep hectic with constant and sporradic flashbulbs.  Zidane enters and sits behind a sparse desk with multiple microphones and a bottle of mineral water.  The world awaits a shocking announcement to be followed that night by an emotional personal interview with an empathetic reporter.  Zidane talks, gives an emotional testimony to his life as a player and the meaning of representing France.  He then moves the subject to what was said to him on that pitch. 

The World gasps in anticipation.  Zidanes speaks.  Materazzi called his wife ugly.  The world sighs in frustration.  That’s it.

“What?!” Zidane exclaims, “You had to be there.  You have to understand where I was emotionally…I mean, it hurt.”

The flashbulbs slow and the room clears of people but not grumbles.  Domenech slowly walks up to the table and to Zidane, his Zidane.  A Zidane once so strong now so vulnerable becomes prey to the advances that Domenech had always wanted so, but could never carry out, damned social conventions being what they are.

  1. you were right a big let down. Imean making disparaging comments obout ones wife, mother or sister etc. is one of the oldest tricks in the book. (see the original M*A*S*H)

    I mean if he was called a terrorist or nazi sympathizer then maybe I could see him getting his ire up.

    I guess PT Barnum was right: “There’s a sucker born every minute”

    What a goat.

    well done. your editing now looks seamless, flawed only by the comment you just left.

    and this comment.

  5. I don’t have any objection to gay hentai men and their shoe preferences, just spammer gibberish.
