Readers, did you know that only 7 teams have won the World Cup? Ever? It is true. I guessed them all correctly yesterday (thanks to a friend who quizzed me on this) - you can see if you can guess them all in comments before you google it. Or I can play the game with you, and let you know when you're close.
But one of those teams just got knocked out of the World Cup. Brazil, that is what you DESERVE for cleating a dude on the hamstring when he's down. I mean, seriously? You're Brazil. Stop with this Italian cheat-y drama bullshit. LOOK WHERE THAT GOT ITALY THIS YEAR.
Well done, Netherlands. Well done. What a good game.
p.s. I might also have been cheering for the Netherlands because my first three youth soccer teams, from when I was 5 years old till when I was 8, wore orange jerseys. We were called "The Orange Crush." Awesome, I know.
