OK. Girls, silly comment....Check out this argentinian players..... Both goalkeepers, Sergio Romero and Diego Pozo. Cute huh?(the first guy to talk is Pozo)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IG73_s4Hl80(this other one, is Romero, the video is kind of lame, but it's the best I could find)http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=e28XwpbqLbU&feature=related
Heather, that's so cute that your son insists on the "proper name" for the game! :)
ESPN has a pretty neat free World Cup app for the iPhone that has gotten me way more into the whole thing than I expected to get... I should've never told DH about it though because now he's on there constantly looking at stats and stuff!
Argh! That goal England let in was terrible - poor guy though. Everyone will remember that one for years to come, even though he made another great save later on.
Yes, the vuvuzelas are kind of annoying! I can kind of tune it out now but, like Anna said, I couldn't imagine what it must be like in the stadium.
Oh, I am so bummed!! How COULD he let that one in? Oh well a draw's better than losing, right? ;-)
Ruth, that annoying noise is made by the fans' vuvuzelas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vuvuzela). I think they tried to ban them before the tournaments started but just couldn't do it as the SA fans love them so much. I cannot imagine what it must sound like to actually be in the stadium; your ears would probably fall off!
Ruth - sounds like our husbands are on the same obsession level! LOL
Hey, how bout that, the US tied with England! LUCKY goal though!!
I'm not much of a sports fan in general but DH is OBSESSED with soccer (er, I mean, REAL football). He decided to get wireless modem on his phone service for this month just so he can watch the world cup at work (he works at a gas station so most of his spare time is spent watching movies on his laptop, but no internet). And the team he is rooting for: Argentina!!! Ok ok and U.S. too....depending on who they're playing.... ;)
