When is a penalty not a penalty.

Strange that the only person out on the football (soccer) field that saw a penalty in action was the German referee. The same German referee that had been called on the carpet for other outlandish pronouncements. Everyone else said that there was no penalty.

Ah, well.

The Americans are going home after a 2-1 score. We'll get 'em next time.

You Are 52% Cynical

Yes, you are cynical, but more than anything, you're a realist.
You see what's screwed up in the world, but you also take time to remember what's right.

It was a hard-earned point.

On Saturday night, the USA played against Italy, and it was a tie, 1-1. Seeing as Italy's odds are 15-2 and the USA's is 100-1, I think we did mighty fine. I am so proud of our team. They played with their hearts and souls, dispite having only nine men on the field (since two were thrown out due to being red-carded) to Italy's ten (they also lost a man for the same reason). Only complaint I have with the team is...why couldn't they have played their first game like that?

Ah, well. It was a great game. My fingers were so sore afterwards 'cause I had them crossed the whole game; but it was worth the pain.

Would someone inform Steve Doocy on Fox & Friends Morning Show that just because the USA lost their first game in the World Cup that they are not "out"? We need all the help with the fans that we can get and having someone throwing misinformation like that out is not going to help any. I guess he doesn't realize that each team has three games that they play to determine who goes on to play in the quarter finals, semi-finals, and finals. Unfortunately for us, we have a big fat zero, point wise, since we lost instead of three points for winning or even one point for a tie.

Short and sweet.

Well, as you can tell, summer's here. It's been quite warm here in our part of England. Expecting a thunder-bunder "moving eastward" today. That's from the weather people-on-high. And with that report, I'm expecting nothing.

We've been watching the World Cup. England did great in their first half and then the Sweed decided to take out Owens for reasons only he can explain and the second half remained 1-0 in England's favor by the skin of their teeth. Actually, the other games we have been watching have been far more exciting. I love watching the teams that have nothing to lose. They play the game the way it's suppose to be played. They make it fun and exciting. Today around 4:45 pm is kick-off for the United States. Hopefully, they will do well. It will be interesting to see them as I have never watched the Americans play yet.

We went to the beach yesterday...along with the other half of England. The wind was nice and cool, and we didn't appreciate it until we returned home to the heat. Ah, well. Summer.

Wrinkly skin and webbed feet.

Last night my youngest daughter had her very first swimming lesson. She took to the water like a little duckling would. After her 30 minute lesson, she wanted to remain for another hour so that she could "practice" what she learned. She went from not even wanting to get water anywhere above her shoulders to holding her breath and dunking herself underwater.

Now I realize you are probably thinking, 'what's the big deal'; however, this is the same child who can take a shower, wash her hair, and still manage to keep her face dry. She's come a very long way with just one lesson.

Now we are getting her a summer membership for the gym for the use of the pool. She wants to go swimming every single day. She says she loves it.

You. Go. Girl.
