I guessed right

After Zidane’s assult on Materazzi during the World Cup final, I was thinking to myself "either Materazzi insulted Zidane’s mother or he insinuated that Zidane was a terrorist because of his Algerian/Islamic background". Well it turns out that Materazzi did both of these things, although he denies it. Zidane has always had somewhat of a vindictive streak in him, but I’ve never seen him react to anything quite like that before, and never in such an important game. Slurs against his mother and his ethnicity are the surely the only things that could have provoked him to such violence.
