The Daily Footie: Zinedine Zidane

Zizou might not be the prettiest boy on the field. And he certainly isn"t the most follicularly (is that a word??) blessed. But there is something to be said for the intangible. Confidence is sexy. Leadership is sexy. Unbridled skill that matches confidence and leadership is sexy. The way he can singlehandedly turn a match around - that"s sexy. His lanky, lean body, the fluid way he moves it, the bone structure, the accent - I imagine he does EVERYTHING with the same level of intensity, including but not limited to crashing headboards and swinging from hammocks on the beach. And that, my friends, is most definitely worthy of a cosmic, contorted, gasping-for-air quiver.
