It's Only After We've Lost Everything That We're Free To Do Anything

by Rainier on July 13, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Spain deserved to win the World Cup this weekend, but I had my money on the Dutch beforehand. It seems like Germany's clairvoyant octopus has correctly picked all the winners, so he's obviously a real connoisseur. The game was fun to watch, and while chances were created on both sides, the Dutch lost because of their aggressive style of playing, and the dam finally broke when one of their players was send off the field for getting two yellow cards, which equals a red card. Said player had to leave to game and could not be replaced. Congrats, Spain!
