Today’s Card Player “LIKE YOU WERE THERE” Moment

In our last LYWTMTM, we highlighted how somtimes an event is big, so important, that it transcends the actual moment and becomes legend.

And with it’s dramatic finish, from zany Frenchman Zinedine Zidane’s headbutt (thanks Drizz at Nickle and Dimes for sending us the animated gif of the atrocity) to the climatic penalty kick finale, this year’s World Cup (of Soccer) truly achieved that “you shoulda been there” status.

Luckily, Card Player was there to report on what it was like to watch other people wishing they were there in Germany as the action unfolded.

And while we do not personally know and therefore cannot speak for Max Pescatori, we will request on his behalf that you quit calling him “The Italian Pirate.” Some things are just not right.
