The Hand of God slams Bush

Check out Argentine soccer god Diego Maradona's t-shirt!

Fans of World Cup football will recall his former antics. In 1986, just four years after the Falklands war, England and Argentina met in the quarterfinals in host Mexico's Aztec stadium. In a tussle with English keeper Peter Shilton, captain Maradona used his hand to punch the ball into the net. His body hid the foul from the referee, who accepted the goal. Maradona told reporters later that the "hand of God" put the ball in the goal.

Maradona went on later in the same game to score the greatest goal in World Cup history. Argentina defeated England 2-1 and went on to win the World Cup. Maradona and Brazilian Pele are widely considered the greatest football players ever.
