Since Materazzi could get FIFA sanctions for racism but not for trashing Zidane's mum and sister, I'm going to assume this is the whole story and that I was pretty much right right right. Onwards and upwards to the best peice of sports trash-talk I've ever heard of (besides the above from Slap Shot, mostly memorable because it was from Paul Newman) and then I'll start trying to spare y'all my footie freak. This is from Randy Ambrosie, an investment banker who played with the Canadian Football League back in the day, to Bennie Thompson - himself a well-reputed shit talker in the League.
'Hey Bennie, recite the alphabet. Just once. Betcha can't do it.'
