Italy Wins World Cup - My Family in Rome

So my Mom and Dad flew off to Rome to be with Phil and Valqueria to help develop their wedding plans and incidently, Italia is in the World Cup Finals! So my family was in Circus Maximus (the real one) watching the event along with countless thousands of zealous Italian soccer fans! And they won in penalty kicks!

The event was nuts by report... parties went into the wee hours of the morning. My parents said it was like the 4th of July and New Years all mixed together! I'm very happy for them that they got to be part of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

As to Zidane, I feel he should be stripped from his award. He doesn't deserve it. He evidently doesn't understand team play and he let his entire country down. Zidane lost the World Cup for France. This kind of behaviour should not be rewarded!
