International soccer games are something else. The passion that fans have for the sport, regardless of the level of competition, is admirable to say the least. You have to love a sport where the fans can take a game hostage because their team sucks and the fans don't think the team deserves to wear the jersey anymore (and the players took them off). American sports fans could learn a thing or two...

The players are something else too. The celebrations are always entertaining, but what I like best is how they exact revenge when they've been done wrong.

In Turkey, Emre Belozoglu  had been handed a two-game suspension after using a racial slur in regards to Didier Zokora (who is from the Ivory Coast). When the two played against each other in a recent game Zokora decided that Belozoglu needed something besides a simple two game suspension.

What I love most is that as soon as he tried to score a goal using Emre's "soccer balls" he turn as if to say,"Yes, yes, I know. Yellow card. I deserve it."

And I'd do it again.
