Post subject:  Anyone got Drogba Sign of the Cross video??

The best World Cup game so far (haven't watch Brazil Vs North Korea... toooo sleepy at the time... gonna do so tomorrow) is Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) Vs Portugal. Both teams did not settle for draw. Both determined to win. Both don't let up ech other.

A great game which ended with 0-0 as score ([USA citizens]"What?! That's the stupidest thing ever, that'sso lame bl bla bla yada yada[/US citizens]).

The most memorable moment is where Ronaldo (a lustful Catholic) shot beautifully from 30 yards range and hit Côte d'Ivoire's goal post. Didier Drogba, the star and captain of Côte d'Ivoire who happens to be the lead striker of Chelsea (while Ronaldo was the lead striker of Manchester United, Chelsea's rival), make sign of the cross!!!

    Ronaldo's best chance came with a long, swerving shot that evaded goalkeeper Boubacar Barry but bounced off the left post.

    Drogba, sitting among the substitutes, reacted to the near miss by blowing out his cheeks and making the sign of the cross across his shoulders.

If anyone have the video please share so I could DL it!

Another memorable moment happened at the end of the game. Côte d'Ivoire's gaol-keeper, Kingson, was shown praying with gesture that mimic muslim praying and then ended it up with doing sign of the cross!! My guess is he's a Charismatic. Charismatic (both Protestant and Catholic) make a similar gesture when praying.

Football is truly instituted by Christ!

If you happen to have the video of La Liga match between Real Madrid and Barcelona where both Puyol (Barcelona's captain) and Raul (Real Madrid's captain) touched the ground and made sign of the cross while entering the field, please share too!!
