Wow, I just read Kottke’s post about the Guardian hiring lip-readers to decipher what Materazzi said to Zidane to provoke the infamous headbutt. If this is true, then I totally second what Kottke says. While I don’t condone what Zidane did, I think it becomes a whole lot more understandable given what Materazzi allegedly said. Surely if lip-reading can be relied upon, then Materazzi should be very seriously punished for the outburst – particularly given the strong anti-racist theme of this World Cup.

Update: Ok, so apparently English lip-readers working on Italian subjects aren’t all that accurate.  I guess we’ll have to wait until we hear what Zinédine has to say.
