    I don't hate soccer, but I saw this on The Onion News Network today and had to share it.

    He was much more intelligent than Rand, so yes, fair enough. :p

    Slovakia 1 - 1 New Zealand



    Our first ever championship point at a World Cup! So much for being the worst team there!

    He is/was among the dirtier players I've watched. Even ignoring the Hand of God, his dives are legendary world-over, not just in Britain.

    Like Ronaldo, Owen, Klinsmann, and about 2 or 3 players from every club in the world who most people never heard of.

    Don't take my word for it though. Jimmy Greaves admitted most footballers would have done the same thing as Maradona in 1986 if they could get away with it. So did Peter Crouch.

    At a time when England was deeply split between North and South, Maradona gave the entire country something to hate together.
