i have to admit, i had hopes, but i didn't think it would actually happen.  netherlands made it to the world cup final!  they beat uruguay 3-2 yesterday in the semi-final.  they play spain sunday (july 11) at 2:30 p.m. eastern (11:30 a.m. here in phoenix) on abc in the final.  wow wow wow.    this could be the netherlands 1st time to lift the world cup trophy.  they've been to the final twice before, in 1974 and 1978, but lost to germany and argentina respectively.

check out this video for highlights of the netherlands v. uruguay match.

on sunday morning i will be at the tilted kilt in tempe, az proudly wearing my netherlands team jersey, rooting for the clockwork oranje.
