World Smackdown

I am not an advocate of violence. I believe that whatever beef you have with someone can be resolved without physical contact. Resolution often means walking away from the situation and just letting it go. In other words, life is not fair.
Now that we have that out of the way, I must admit that I kind of admire Zizou for the Headbutt Heard Round the World. And this is assuming all the speculation is true about what was actually said on the pitch. Judging by the dirty ways he plays, I’m willing to bet Materrazi is not as innocent as he claims he is.
Personally, I can think of many times I’ve wanted to hit someone over the head for being a bully or a moron. If someone called my daddy a dirty terrorist, I know I’d want to smack that person down. But would I do it? Probably not. Not just because I think it’s wrong, but also because I don’t have it in me…at least, I don’t think I do. Watching Zidane headbutt Materazzi was like free therapy. Because now when I’m angry or annoyed with someone I have a visual I can refer to in order to make myself feel a little better about walking away.
[Update] Zidane explains and apologizes to the children:

    My free therapy and guilty pleasure is a good episode of Cheaters, in which they employ my favorite televised-method of conflict resolution: Fight It Out.

    I’ve never seen that show, but I did catch a clip on tv’s most outrageous moments when the host of that show got STABBED by the husband who was caught cheating. Crazy!
