Just In Case

Just in case you don't follow soccer (futbol), Uruguay, just clinched their entry into the semi-finals. Winning in penalty shots, after 2 overtimes, brought everyone to the edge of their seats. The country goes wild tonight. Fireworks, horn tooting and shouting can be heard, even in this little quiet community. Next Tuesday's match will decide whether we make the finals. Banks (and most businesses) adjusted their hours to allow time off during game time. Next week, the game is in the evening. I can't imagine anyone missing it.

Eh, I'll be tempted. Much as I share the excitement, the last two advances have been basically because of luck. South Korea could easily have advanced but for errors, and the reason Ghana didn't win will haunt Gyan Asamoah forever.... With Suárez out (ironic because he plays for a Dutch team), it's not unreasonable to expect Holland to chew them up and spit them out IMHO. ~d

Oh ye of little faith! I think Uruguay dominated the game, but for Kingston's magnificent goal tending, they would have won it easily.
