TDIA: In honour of this fantastic double-handball we are posting this twice.

AN EXCLUSIVE REPORT FROM OUR ROVING REPORTER THE SPORTING READER

For this fantastic display of sportsmanship, integrity, honesty and sheer Tai Chi-like fluidity of hand movement, the Order of the Shiny Tracksuit (Aungier Street) awarded its Sportsman of the Year award to Thierry Henry.  The award comes with a full year’s subscription to Cheating Bollocks magazine and a large bronze plaque that says “Ta mere!”

At least by this “leger de main” if you will, the world was spared the embarrassing spectacle of FIFI President Sepp Blatter walking onto the field to hand the referee an envelope stuffed with Euros to make sure that France qualified at all costs as many feared would happen when the game went into extra time.  Why FIFA (Federation for the Insertion of France into Africa) would be prepared to go to such extremes to get this mediocre team to South Africa is anyone’s guess.  Cynics might say it is all about TV rights but we all know it is all for the sport, right?
