It was the lowest scoring World Cup since 1990, and the U.S. couldn’t even score by themselves. There is verifiable evidence that Americans now dislike soccer even more, and 1998 champs and ’06 runner up France is now the headbutt of all jokes.
I enjoy watching soccer and find it at times quite exhilirating. Penalty shot overtime shootouts, however — anticlimactic denouement of the first order. Anyway, it sure didn’t take long for the Zinedane Zidane online headbutting video game to go live. Play it here.
