Germany Gets Bronze
The German team acquited themselves with honor today, winning 3rd prize from a determined and dynamic Uruguay side. It was a hard-fought match played fairly and without distracting theatrics. Let's hope tomorrow is more of the same.
Surprisingly enough, I'll be cheering on the Spaniards tomorrow. Arjen Robben is too much for me to bear. Add Van Bommel's thuggery to the mix and, sure, they're effective, but there's just no way I could feel good about cheering for them. I don't need a team to play a game beautifully (I'm an American fan, after all), but I can't stand when it's played purely cynically.
