alonso, it is nice technical stuff, just not my personal preference.
The new generation balls just fly.The Spaniards do it very well though.

Both teams played well. When it gets near the end of extra time it can go either way.
Don't know about boring as bat poop balance, I think Spain played a beautiful passing game.
I might just be getting old but it seems to me they all pass the ball about twice as fast as
they used to.

Blueice, I do agree with you. Spain was the better team and deserved the verdict. <Viva La Spagna>

congrats the the Spaniards.
I was betting on a german cup after the socceroos exited.When the Germans push forward hard and fast it is brilliant.They were awful against Spain.

Spain played technical ,disciplined football.Boring as bat poop but then again what would I know? They won.

Spain wins the 2010 World Soccer Cup - the octopus does again.
I wonder if this octopus is available for hire for share tipping?????????? Seems to be doing better than my second hand crystal ball.................

Viva Maradona!

"The Origin of the vuvuzela"

I just received a research report on the origin of that tooting thing that annoys visitors and TV viewers watching the matches. Contrary to the Host Nation's claims, it was actually invented by our Northern neighbours. The name is derived from "fuzzy-wuzzy", as would have been obvious to any amateur phoneticist, if only they'd been asked the question...

But the most striking proof is in pictures like this:

Don't most Kiwi players play in the A-League?!?!
