Germans Victorious!

The first game of the 2006 World Cup is over...



And Germany snatched victory from Costa Rica, 4 goals to 2!

I don't think I'll be getting any
sleep at all over the next month!

Don't forget to vote in the "World Cup" poll in my sidebar...

    Michele sent me over to see you in Japan, V'Knids.

    I won't be watching much soccer but my girlfriend will. I'll be watching the Stanley Cup finals (Hockey) instead. Good luck with getting some sleep!

    I'm not sure I'll vote. Soccer fans can be pretty over the top!

    Thanks for stopping by.

    JATP, Thanks for stopping by...I think a lot of people will agree with your choice!

    Utenzi, Yokoso (Welcome)and my knowledge of hockey related events has increased considerably, thanks to all my Canadian workmates! (Before coming here, it was...ZERO!)

    FTB, Thanks for dropping in...some football fans do get a bit much...but rest assured, I'm not one of them ;)

    SD, Thanks for returning the favour! Your daughter is in for some exciting times :D

    MF, My loyalties are torn between Australia and Japan...June 12th (their game) will be a difficult day ;)

    Ivonne, I'm guessing you voted for Italy :D And yes, it's going to be a great month!

    I'm such an typical American - what's a World Cup!? ;) No, I'm not that bad, but here in the US, World Cup doesn't get much attention. Soccer has not caught on here in the US - maybe we have too many sports already and it would be difficult to find the time for another?? Have fun watching the WC! It's probably like our Superbowl.

    What I meant by "It's probably like our Superbowl" is that everyone is excited about it and tons of people are watching it on the tele - called the TV here in the US ;)

    Give it time Elsa and I'm sure it'll catch on, especially as your teams, both male and female, are quite good!

    And thanks for clarifying...you made me laugh :D
