When Flopping Comes Around

FBers go HERE for video.

A few World Cups back, a jackass named Rivaldo decided that being talented wasn't enough -- he wanted to win the diving title, too. Here's the move:

Now, if you speak Spanish, Portuguese or Italian, this is quality soccer -- but for the rest of the world, this is an excellent example of being a little punk bitch.

Tonight, Brazil got their comeuppance, as star Kak√° got tossed when an Ivory Coast-er* dropped like he'd just received a Zidane-style headbutt. Of course, Brainiac waited until the 88th minute and IC was losing 3-1 before pulling his stunt. Nice work, Pottsie.

Net result, Brazil plays a man down for 5 minutes and still wins. Seems like a Pyrrhic victory for cheaters, huh?

* Cote d'Ivoire, my ass. I speak English, it's Ivory Coast, regardless of what your goverment says. When you call it "United States of America" and not L'Etat Unis, then we can talk.
