FINAL – The Netherlands versus Spain

Van Bommel apparently is a sweetheart off the field...douche on it!

Executive call…not going to blog unless it’s really crazy…Enjoy the game.

TWEEEEEEEEEET and the Dutch kick it off

PUYOL IN HD…he’s up there with Tevez and Ribery.

There is an Italian still in world cup as Cannavaro brings it out and kisses it one last time.

The trophy is in a Louis Vuiton case!

Will Paul go through the world cup undefeated?

Nelson Mandela will make an appearance before the game (but watching it from home). It will probably be one of his last public appearances. I have no idea what to say about this amazing man.

Back soon with the lineups

———————————-

Interestingly it turns out that everyone’s favorite Sneijder is a bit of a dick where as Van Bommel calls his wife and children before every game and tells them he loves them and thst he is trying to win the game for them….AWWWWW.

We’re at the Phoenix for this one but we would like to thank both Danny Coyles and Phoenix for hooking us up and providing excellent venues to watch these wonderful games. If you are out of town and ever come to beautiful SF, be sure to check out these two bars!

This is it. Game number 64, the final one, the big one. Spain versus Holland.

    I have a tenner on Alonso scoring the first goal at 20/1, and another tenner on Spain winning 3-1 at 18/1.

    What a kick by the legbreaker.

    What a whiff by Mathijsen.

    Casillas saves one Robben breakaway… Then Puyol apparently borrowed some of van Bommel’s magic ointment and doesn’t get his second card for yanking down Robben on another.

    Lovely finish by Iniesta for the game-winner.

    Congratulations to Paul and the Spanish. Good riddance to the Dutch. It’s a little hard to call the German semifinal game “negative” when you have the Dutch to set such a standard.

    who is that woman who aids in all of the substitutions for the Spanish? She’s middle aged, brunette, a lil heavy set and i saw alot of the players hugging her and talking to her after the win. Just something i’ve always wondered because i have seen her so many times this tournament

      idk, team mom? The French probably could’ve used someone to put the players over her knee from time to time…
      I know I’ve seen her, too… I figure she’s one of the many team trainers or something.
      I’m honestly surprised there’s not more female support in the teams. I’m sure a lot of guys would bristle at it initially, but outside the obvious immediate locker room privacy issues, there’s little reason there women shouldn’t be a good addition to team support. If anything, the lessened “freedom of speech” would probably make for a more professional atmosphere; something I think early 20 something superstars would benefit from.
