Another week of Fútbol over Football
Aún Estamos Vivos - The unofficial website of the Marco Materazzi Fan Club!
Inter Milan Defender Marco "Matrix" Materazzi.
I should be posting about the NFL... Pats vs. 'Hawks this afternoon. I should be posting about that, shouldn't I? We're heading into the stretch towards the playoffs.
Well, all week Ryan Clark's hit on Wes Welker in the game against the Steelers last Sunday was the hottest featured video on Google. Five turnovers by the Patriots and a bunch of unbelievable drops by Randy Moss. I can't believe Foxboro fans had to sit in the cold driving rain for that performance.
I'm still not in the mood, even though the Patriots managed to wrest the lead (and the win) back today from the Seahawks with 2:45 left, and Wes Welker had a huge day.
So yeah, here's another fútbol post. I felt bad about posting up an AC Milan clip a little while back, considering that Cristina is an Inter Milan fan. After all, Inter is still leading Italy's Serie A ahead of AC Milan, so here's a tribute to two of Inter's aging stars, both of whom are currently in the doghouse of coach Jose Mourinho. Their days may be numbered.
Bicycle Kick Goal by Marco Materazzi
At the age of 35, Matrix may be headed for the end of his career. Coach Mourinho doesn't like him very much. Generally speaking, Materazzi is a defender most widely known for his egregious hacking fouls, but this clip shows that he's not without talent. There's a reason why he's been a stalwart the past several years on the the Azzurri, Italy's national squad.
He's so crazy I can't help but to like him.
Hernán Crespo Highlight Reel, set to Kryptonite by Three Doors Down
It looks like the 33-year old Argentinian striker and World Cup star Hernán Crespo will be leaving Inter very soon, perhaps for SA Roma. He hasn't had much playing time lately, and has never gotten on very well with Mourinho either, going back all the way to their days together at Chelsea in England's Premier Division. I think he still has a lot of great soccer left in him.
