Spain Reigns in 2010 World Cup!

Well, it’s over and it was so much fun.  I don’t know if soccer football will be any more popular than it already isn’t (ha ha) in America but I, for one had World Cup Fever.  Besides, all of this introduced me to some of the hottest athletes in the world.  While we still worship (the other) football, basketball and baseball players here, the rest of the world already knew about these guys.  For whatever reason, hockey players are the hot athletes to hook up with.  Carrie Underwood got married this weekend to Mike Fisher.  Hilary Duff is dating Mike Comrie.  I mean, hockey is cool and what-not, but who wouldn’t want to snuggle up to Cesc Fabregas or Carlos Bocanegra. C’mon ladies, step up your highly paid athelete game!
Andres Iniesta for the WIN!

So it all came down to Spain and the Netherlands with Spain being the favorite to win.  The game went into overtime and yes, I watched all 106 or so minutes of it. After an hour it was like, “someone make a damn goal already!”,  but it was an exciting game to watch.  I have to say, with players like Cesc, David Villa and Iker Casillas, they definately had the advantage of looks.  I’m sure there are some cuties on the Netherlands team too, but their bright orange uniforms distracted me.  Andres Iniesta made the winning goal and was so excited he took of his shirt.

The REAL World Cup DIVA -- PAUL, the Octopus

The best thing about all of this is an octopus named Paul, also know as the Oracle of Oberhausen, predicted everything! There was a little bit of drama when a spectator tried to touch the World Cup trophy before Spain and Netherlands took to the field.  After accepting his second place medal and shaking some hands, the Dutch coach took ripped off his medal.  Talk about being a bitter bitch.

One thing I won’t miss about all of this is the sound of those vuvuzelas.  That honking noise will haunt my nightmares for months to come.   Among other annoyances, there was Landon Donovan’s baby mama drama after the U.S. lost to Ghana, but we’ll see what happens there, won’t we?

Then there’s Cristiano Ronaldo. Oh, C-Ron.  Well, he’s certainly having his own baby drama, isn’t he?  While he was out and about in New York looking….well…European, his sister Katia was back at his home in Portugal taking care of his son. We still don’t know who the mother is, she is American.

Let’s hope the baby gets C-Ron’s thighs.
