I got your World Cup right here

Italian soccer star Marco Materazzi today admitted that he did, indeed, insult French captain Zinedine Zidane during Sunday's World Cup final, prior to Zidane's head-butting Materazzi in the chest.

Materazzi, however, denies Zidane's allegation that Materazzi called him a terrorist.

"I did insult him, it's true," Materazzi said in the Italian journal Gazzetta dello Sport. "But I categorically did not call him a terrorist."

Materazzi also denied that he had profaned Zidane's mother, saying, "For me, the mother is sacred, you know that."

Unreported was the follow-up Materazzi muttered sotto voce:

"At least she was last night!"

Thank you. I'll be here all week.
