Who wins Saturday?
« on: July 02, 2010, 11:47:28 PM »

Saturday Argentina vs Germany and Spain vs Paraguay to see who plays the other semifinal.
I am going with Argentina and Spain.

By the way, I feel like getting some blue electrical tape tomorrow to temporarily change Figaro's color. Unfortunately, I don't recall ever seeing tape of sky blue ("celeste") color. By the way, the guy on ESPN keeps not pronouncing the "e" at the end. The correct pronunciation of the three vowels is the same like the e in tennis.

Spain never pass of 4th of final. All red-yellow tops are out of the cardboard. Today in Madrid is a hard stormy day with a lot of rain... prediction of rain of future goals? :D

There is only a reason to wait for an argentinian disaster... the face of Maradona dressing like a gipsy king after match.  ;D ;D ;D   Yes Mike, I'm a sinner. :D

I was really wrong there!
Runbmc: was it you or Mike who voted Germany and Paraguay? I would be really surprised if Spain lost.  Unless they go 0-0 to penalty kicks. Then I am going with Paraguay.  But I am expecting a great Germany - Spain match for the semifinals. On the other hand, Uruguay has several of the best players injured and its major striker out with a red card, so it will be very tough against Holand.

LOL, I love knowing a little Spanish.  I know enough to read Ramos' lips after he missed that cross in the 8th or 9th minute against Paraguay.

Sorry kids, if you don't know, I can't tell you.

Yes, congratulations Pulp!!!  Spain deserves that win.  My dream of an all "guay" final will have to wait for another year......or maybe another century?

I am happy for Pulp and all his Spanish friends.  I hope you all throw a few down for me......I'm talking about tops, of course!

Enhorabuena Pulpo, Javier!

Spain is overdue for a world title.  I hope they win against Germany. After that it depends  . . .   ;)

From what I was told (both sides missing penalties) it was a nail biting affair. I could not watch the match as I was visiting the fleet of "tall ships" marooning in Corpus (including the Miranda from Uruguay, the Cuauhtémoc from Mexico, the USCG Eagle, and the magnificent 371 ft Esmeralda from Chile).

No, it was just for fun. The "tall ships" sail together every year, typically for about 8 months, visiting ports in either the Americas, Europe or Asia, and they are both training vessels and ambassadors for the countries. This year voyage around Cape Horn ended in Veracruz, Mexico, but three ships, joined by the USCG Eagle, came to Corpus to coincide with the 4th of July celebration. By the way, the Canadian ship sunk in front of Brazil in a storm that also almost doomed the Uruguayan vessel. Except for the American one that was built in Germany, the rest were built in Spain. In fact, the Chilean one is a sister ship of the Spanish El Cano. I wanted to throw Figaro on board of the Miranda but it was complicated so I only threw a small top.

Yes, and Germany lost to Serbia. Only Netherlands has won every match. Uruguay has not lost but tied two (one decided by penalties).
