It’s Time Again…

OK, since today the World Cup continues with the quarterfinals I will have to list my Cuties of the day again.

Obviously Poldi (Lukas Podolski) is still THE best of them all.

The second game of the day is a little harder concerning cuties. I don’t want Italy to win, however I am not able to find anybody hot on the Ukrainian team. Go figure.

Update 2 PM: What a game! After penalty kicks Germany finally won. Let's see who they'll play July 4th.


Now who knows what that means?
See Germany won the World Cup in 1954, 1974 and 1990. So I guess it’s about time…..

No Games, No Cuties

They will come back on Friday.
In the meantime I will enjoy the weather!!!

Definitely a Cutie

Jose Antonio Reyes is most definitely a Cutie.
Spain will face, and hopefully beat, France this afternoon. See I always liked Zidane but that was during the 1998 world cup when France was so good but they suck ass and I have to go with Spain.

So, here Jose.

And one more time...

First Match Toughie

In today’s first match Ghana is playing Brazil. See, I don’t want Ghana to win since they beat the US and that sucks. However I don’t like Brazil that much either, but they are the clear favorite. So this morning’s cutie will be Brazilian.
That was tough because I can’t find anybody really cute in there. Ronaldo is a fatty and the rest of the team is not much better. But, if I had to pick one I guess it’ll be Adriano.


Update: I guess Adriano is a happy camper since they just beat Ghana 3:0. Too bad Spain will beat them after they destroy France this afternoon.

My Swiss Pick

That would be Ricardo Cabanas. I know, sounds very Swiss, eh?

And another one.

Bummer Again

Italy beat Australia, which means Italy will have to wait until Friday to get their asses kicked by (hopefully) Switzerland. I hope the Swiss win over the Ukraine later on today. However it seems that the football gods don’t care what I hope for…idiots.

Australian Cutie

I am currently looking through the Australian football (soccer) team and I found some cuties but there is nobody really sticking out…. I’ll keep looking though.
So far, Craig Moore and Michael Beauchamp are among my picks for the boys from down under.

Update: Lucas Neill isn't too bad either. Too many choices.

Update 2: Lucas Neill won! Good luck Australia!!

Update 3: Apparently this cutie fouled some Italian dude, which caused the ref for whatever reason to give them a penalty kick instead of a card (??). In the last seconds Italy scored and went on to the next round.
I still think he's cute though.

Another Hottie

That would be Portugal’s Luis Figo. Kind of cute, isn’t he?

BTW, yesterday’s game was incredible. I though that you can’t have any more yellow and red cards in a game but apparently Russian Referees like colors a lot.

Help, I’m drowning

What’s going on???
It took me forever to get to the metro station because my usually route was flooded and then the metro was s-l-o-w because some station had to be closed because of flooding. Perfect Monday morning I say.

In other news I hope Italy gets their asses kicked by Australia, simply because they beat the US, literally.

Have a good one.

All Alone

Again. After the hubby was away on business the first half of the week I sent him to Florida for an extended weekend. Monday night he’ll be back and I will have all this time to myself again. Maybe this time I actually get to finish something.

He US team didn’t make it to the next level in the Soccer World Cup. I can’t believe Ghana beat them.

Just Found

On the Drudge Report.

Rooney is a soccer player for the English team, who has made headlines in the past that have more to do with his non-soccer related behavior…

I was just thinking that I need to update the book I‘m reading up there in the right corner. Then I was thinking that I read so much that I probably skipped a good deal of books I read and that lead me to think I should’ve kept a list of the books I read last year and this year already…Maybe now is a good start.

I’m real good at keeping lists. Each computer I use is full of folders full of spreadsheets. It’s so much fun but it doesn’t really help when you have too many….

Made It

As of this morning Germany made it to the next round. I followed yesterday’s game closely and almost lost it at the end. Once I got home I just had to watch the second half and it was exciting. I love soccer and I love the World Cup.

VA Problems

Lately the VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) has been in the news because of the stolen laptop containing data of veterans. Since the hubby just recently retired from the Navy it was of some concern to us, which is understandable. But overall we were OK. Since he also filed a claim with the VA there has been some paperwork coming from them over the last months. The other day we get two letter stating pretty much the same thing a previous letter already stated, which I thought was odd, but then considering it’s a government institution the right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing. And who would have though that they attached somebody else’s claim information to his letter. With Social Security Number and all. Nice, huh? So does somebody have my husband’s now? I hope it’s not the guy whose info we have because we know why he was discharged…
