With the greatest respect to golf, I think blowing it on tv in front of 2 billion spectators is much the bigger event ;)

Here's my attempt to explain. Imagine if John Elway came out of retirement today and even though waaay too old dragged his team, almost by himself into the superbowl. In the final period, with the scores tied and his team on offense, he strolls over the opposition bench and dropkicks a player. *That's* the equivalent of what Zidane did.

Update to this post: head-butter Zidane won the Golden Ball, voted Most Outstanding Player in the World Cup.

How le hell do you write a golf blog about a French guy pulling a bonehead maneuver on his sport's grandest stage and not mention Jean Van de Velde in the 1999 British Open!? Talk about blowing it!

I said "stars", no one expects anything too great from Van de Velde.

Mickelson was having driver 'issues' all that last day. His decision to hit driver on 18 showed bad judgement, as did his try for the green from trouble rather than playing for the playoff. The term 'Meltdown' just doesn't apply. Blow a 6 stroke lead? Triple bogey a critical hole? OK, I'm with you. This doesn't make the cut in the Historic Meltdown Sweepstakes.

Zidane's head-butt in World Cup is the biggest meltdowns in my opinion.
