La Roja vs. Naranja!!


Well, well...it is a sad post for me.... This coming Sunday the final match of the World Cup 2010 will be played. I will have to wait another 4 patient years for the greatest sporting event in the world to take place in Brazil. AHHHH!!!! Withdrawl.

I, along with an estimated 1 BILLION other futbol fans will watch the Netherlands take on Spain for the title of the 2010 World Cup Champions. Interestingly enough, neither have ever won the title, but both teams have always been highly respected.

I personally am rooting for La Roja!!! My hubby is actually half Spanish so it comes by default, but in all fairness I am most impressed with the style of soccer the Spaniards are putting forth. At the end of the day if the Netherlands end up with the win I admit I won`t be disappointed. I was really hoping we would have a new World Cup Champ and with these two teams playing one another we are guaranteed one. All in all, I think this is going to be one hell of a match!!!

So, in preparation for the next 4 years of withdrawl, hubby and I have made a firm decision that we are going to attend the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Thank you hubbs - you really are the BEST!!!

Viva FIFA!!!

I feel the same way! I've been having soccer withdrawals all week! :)

I know Spain is the favorite. Even el pulpo Paul predicted that Spain is going to win. But I'm rooting for La Naranja Mecanica!

And how cool that you'll be attending Brasil 2014! I hope you'll send lots of pics!

Leslie - Jajajaja, el pulpo Paul has only been wrong once apparently!!! Hilarious. La Naranja are great, but to me La Roja is more talented as a whole!! Just my opinion!!! Will be nice to have a new WC champion!!!

Yes, these withdrawls have been awful!!!

Amiga, you have no idea how excited I am. When the WC was in Germany my family went together for one full month, and I couldn't go!!! I was distraught... We wanted to do SA but weren't sure it would be ready to host an event...we were wrong!! Entonces....Brazil it is :))))
