Speaking of Poor Sports...

Norman's latest post got me thinking about other "blowups" in sports. I just came across this video of an ESPN Top 10 Most Unsportsmanlike Plays. My personal favorite is number 4.

What else deserves to be on this list, readers?

This compelation must have been produced prior to the World Cup, because there is no way Zidane's head butt should have been left off the list.

Now don't get me wrong, I love Zidane, and I think Materazzi deserved to get f*cking smoked like that. Zidane grew up in the Algerian ghetto and doesn't take any sh*t, so what do you expect? Its also widely known that Materazzi one of the world's dirtiest players. Check out this youtube clip; it's 5 minutes of Materazzi going in with his cleats up, delivering high kicks, playing the man instead of the ball, and generally being a dirty f*ck.

That being said, it was technically "unsportsmanlike" of Zidane to level the boom on Materazzi like that.
