“I’ll never be the same – if we ever meet again. Won’t let you get away – if we ever meet again.” Posted byNatalia AntonovaJuly 8, 2010Posted inFootieTags:germany ♥ Sigh. Now on to cheer for Spain in the final. (Well, I mean, I won’t be upset if Holland wins either, it will be one of those finals for me – a good time either way – but Iker Casillas is still my secret lover.)

One thought on ““I’ll never be the same – if we ever meet again. Won’t let you get away – if we ever meet again.””
The Germans played un-Germanically until yesterday, and I for one thought it was transcendent.
Then yesterday they played like the hapless German team of the late 1990s, and ever since then I’ve only wanted to huddle under my covers. That is, they played true to form, minus competence. Since when do German players fail to mark up on a corner kick?
Ah, I have a soft spot for Uruguay, so I’ll be happy with whomever wins third. As for the Cup – well, I think the Netherlands have had it coming since the early 1970s, so maybe it’s their time? At any rate, I had no respect for Spain until yesterday. They played such weak games in the group stage, then did the bald minimum. But I have to pay them some grudging honors for defeating “my” team. (Yes,I’m an American, but I married a German 15 years ago and spent a decade living in Berlin, so I get both bragging and bawling rights.)
Happy watching this weekend.
