|World Cup Champions... of wank

I haven't seen any finals wank yet, so I hope you don't mind that I brought my own. *insert first wank/virgin cliches here*
So, for the soccer watching public out there, last night's final of the World Cup was filled with extreme wank potential in its own right. There was the dubious first penalty and Zidane's sending off and the final penalty shoot out, right? If there was any wank about it, surely it would have been more about those incidents than anything else, right? Right?
Only, some Australians on the Sydney Morning Herald website don't really see it that way.
I can't really link to individual comments on that page, but here's a selection of the wankiest cuts.
I suppose I should also offer some background for non-Australians/people living in Australia. Italy beat Australia about two weeks ago in extra time with a controversial penalty decision by the referee that had a lot of football fans in Australia shouting about how the Italians had bought their way into the quarter-finals.
Fair enough, some people might say. Turn off the TV and forget about the World Cup until 2010, maybe?
( Never! )
( We're not sore losers! We played with Honour and Integrity! )
( Although not all Italians are gracious in victory )
( Thankfully there are some saner fans )
It's like a veritable fountain of stupid that won't stop gushing! *insert obligatory joke about penises here* All I can say is, I'm glad this wank comes around only every four years.
But yay for Luca Toni and Andrea Pirlo - I'd have their babies. But then I'm not into club football.
