So, not a lot to say about the end of the world cup, I just want to show this picture, which you should click to see a very awesome animated GIF, which I stole from someone else. I’m super happy for Spain!

We will miss you. Diego Forlan just can’t be the only person on the team, you know. Still, they did better than I thought they would against the Netherlands. Just not good enough. If Spain doesn’t win tomorrow, I don’t think I’ll have any interest in watching the finals.

It only missed one — the US loss to Ghana. Everything else was dead on. That’s kind of neat. Of course, if that success rate continues I’ll be sad because it will mean that Forlan won’t win the World Cup.

Spain seems to have regained its footing, its next game against Chile is important, but if they continue to play solidly they …

So, I’m beginning to think that unless you’re from Central or South America, you’re just here to disappoint me. And I’m not sure that that’s even right because I wasn’t impressed with Brazil. Even the Germans, who looked unstoppable after their total destruction of Australia, have lost to a minor team. I guess that’s the …

New Zealand v Slovakia An amazing last minute (literally) goal from New Zealand gave them their first point in the World Cup and earned them a draw with Slovakia, who’d been up since just after the half. Ivory Coast v Portugal For a scoreless match, this one was sort of interesting, though I would have …

Netherlands v Denmark Netherlands won as expected with the added bonus of a freak Denmark own goal. Japan v Cameroon Japan with an upset over Cameroon. Italy v Paraguay Italy was supposed to trounce Paraguay, and instead they ended up trailing for most of the game, and just pulling out a tie in the second …
