The French Lose Again!
I actually watched the last half of the World Cup, including the overtime periods and the final shoot out. Of course I had to root for Italy, my family's point of origin. It was amazingly entertaining and interesting. Similar to the NBA or NHL Finals, Soccer seems to get interesting when the trophy is on the line. Seems like the players worked a little harder.
Congratulations to Italy once again. It was great to see the better team win.
Oh, and as a friendly reminder....
On This Day In History, in 1943 Allied forces invaded Sicily to kick off the invasion of Italy/Europe in order to destroy Germany and retake France.
Ahhh, how times have changed.
