On Nov. 23, 2005 I moved to The Hague from Washington, DC. This is my new Dutch life.


World Cup in Review

Yeah yeah, I know it isn't over, but there comes a time with any major sporting event that runs over several weeks (Olympics, tennis, World Cup soccer) when you can barely muster any interest. When your first, second, and third choice teams have been knocked out, what do you do? With soccer, you're meant to enjoy the sheer beauty of the game, but I'll contend that this year's world cup finals certainly didn't earn any new fans with all around bad refereeing, sportsmanship, and game play.

Let's review...

1) The US did not live up to expectations. Whoever is in charge, please fire Bruce Arena. For starters, the guy couldn't even get his tubby ass off the bench and get into it. What the hell kinda arm-chair coaching was that? Shameful.

2) Italy and Ghana are cheaters.

3) Australia was robbed.

4) Bummer way to go England!

5) Adieu, Le Brésil.

6) Portugal are thugs.

7) What happened to the Golden Goal?

8) Whoever I go for, loses.
