question is simply this: Why not punch the guy? Or kick him (I mean, if you've seen these guys try to catch water bottles thrown at them, you realize their hands have atrophied)? Or maybe the classic spit? Perhaps the Mike Tyson ear snack?
Instead, Zidane chose the headbutt. Why? Is there some sort of Franco-Tunisian proclivity to the head butt? Does Zidane have a weapon hidden in that skull of his -- Materazzi went down kinda hard. Why headbutt? That's what I want to know.
