"I Prefer The Whore That Is Your Sister."

So after all this time, it comes out today that this is exactly what Marco Materazzi said to Zinedine Zidane in last year's World Cup final which resulted in the most famous headbutt in the history of the Western World {at least according to Materazzi}.


In case you suffer amnesia or live under a rock

We knew the first part of the conversation, in which Zidane turned to Materazzi after in irritation after MM was grabbing his jersey and said "if you want my shirt that badly, I'll give it to you after the match", but although generalizations were later released we never learned exactly what Materazzi's response was. Until now.

Why now?

Why else? Because Materazzi's autobiography is being released on August 30th and it's on page 21, that's why.

I wonder if he was always planning on writing an autobiography and then decided that including this juicy nugget might drive book sales, or if he decided that the incident and this nugget of information might sell and that is why he decided to write an autobiography.

Either way, like everything else in the modern information age, it's been leaked.

So there it is.
