It's Spain against Big Bad Germany

The rain was pouring and the lightning was striking, but, striking the ball was not for my man Fernando. He didn't live up to his potential today. He needs a little more seasoning and I think it's perfect for him to play the first 2/3 of the match, then let Gueaza come in as a finisher. The most effective player, at moving and advancing the ball today was Sergio Ramos.

Who would have guessed Spain 3 to 0 over Russia?

Martha Stewart and Quilting

Since I've been watching a lot of TV lately, while my daughter Jennifer goes through her cancer treatments, I've happened upon the Martha Stewart Show.

It is the sport of the everyman size-not the steroid abusing, obnoxious egotists-well maybe there are some obnoxious egotists in soccer, but it takes so much finesse and so long to get a score that it makes it that much sweeter when they do. My new favorite team, for the Eurocup 2008, is Spain. I would have been voting for Turkey, but, they have so many injuries and yellow card penalties, I doubt they have much hope against the big, bad Germans.

Ah well, it's still the beautiful game.
