Brazil vs. France (Halftime)

This, this is why I watched 390+ combined minutes of brain-crackingly dull Quarter Finals. This was the beautiful game. This was awesome. This was two perfectly matched teams fighting with beautiful spirit, playing beautiful ball. I expected France to put up an honourable fight, but they have gone beyond anything anyone could've anticipated. They have played honourably and elegantly. Zidane's two-footed wonderment and those amazing tackles by Abidal and Malouda. They are beyond words. I've forgotten how physical Brazil could get. This is the first time I've seen them so unnerved in this World Cup. They are hanging on to their defense, but just barely. The yellow card nuttery is going to cost Brazil at some point. Certainly, I hope it doesn't lead to an accidental red card of a key player later. Zidane makes Ronaldinho look clumsy here, it's surreal. And it's only the first half!

Note: Among the wonderful things in this wonderful game, was that really Robinho hugging Zidane when he came off the field?
