The Men in the suits are always cool!!!
I have no idea what the above line means, but that was how the BBC commentator described those sitting in the luxury boxes at the Netherlands–S&M game. But it seems to sum up Day 3. No need to get out the scrapbook for this. And here are some musings from a day spent mostly on the couch watching the games.
Feel the passion: Mexican chants of Ole ring the stadium as the Tri-Colors beat up Iran.
Feel the passion: Mexican goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez, whose father unexpectantly died on Thursday, tearily being mobbed by his teammates after the game
Missed Budweiser marketing opportunity: Couldn't bikini clad girls sponge down Dutch coach Marco Van Basten on the sideline? Or at least a Q-tip chewing cornerman?
S&M tactics: This was the phrase that had all the BBC pundits laughing during the game, but same can't be said of S&M players http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=370782&cc=5739 (check out bottom half of article). Ouch.
I don't have much else for today. I did respond to some comments in previous posts. Time to get some sleep as tomorrow we make the 4 hour drive to Kaiserslautern for Japan-Australia. Then we'll watch the USA game somewhere in K-town. Hoping for a great atmosphere since about 40,000 Americans live in and around K-town. Enjoy the games.
