France's Zindane is this weeks "What were you thinking" award winner

France Captain Zinedine Zindane was given a red card for headbutting Italy's Marco Materazzi in the chest. For all you non-soccer fans, I count myself in this group until I found myself glued to the TV for this World Cup (okay back to my point), a red card is an automatic ticket to the locker room. The reason Zindane wins this award is that he is France's best player and by getting kicked out of the game he in affect may have cost his team the World Cup. He was their leader and best scorer so his team had to of felt the pressure of playing without him. He wasn't there to help them in penalty kicks to decide the championship or the remainder of overtime. Way to lead your team Zindane. It's ironic that today Zindane was named the World Cups most outstanding player by FIFA, the governing body of soccer.

If you haven't seen it, here's the clip.
