"Hand Of God" Strikingly Similar To Hand Of Maradona

Soccer... I mean... football star Maradona admitted that he touched the ball with his hand during the Argentina vs. England 1986 quarterfinals. This essentially could have changed history in that Argentina might not have won the World Cup that year.

Ok, everyone all together now...

"Who cares?!!"

No, say it like a soccor goal chant...


Anyway, if you want to see a video of the sorta-famous event, HERE it is.

I'm still waiting for Franco Harris to 'fess up to the Immaculate Reception.

Can you find a clip of the immaculate reception? I'd love to see my team take it to the Raiders. >:)

Well, no one in the US, obviously. You guys don't even know what football is.

But the World Cup is the biggest sports event in the world. And Diego Maradonna's blatant hand ball not only cinched the final game and got them the trophy, but it was made even more insulting by the fact that EVERYONE saw him do it. Even the referee's guide dog saw him do it. The TV and video clips showed him doing it over and over again.

And his response to being caught cheating and getting away with it?

Deny everything, and claim it was the hand of god that did it.

So now he's admitting that, yes, he did cheat. That's a little like Clinton saying "Okay, so, yeah she blew me." Everyone knew. The fucker denied it anyway. Now he's confessing.

Football. It's not a matter of life and death. It's more important than that.
