out again to watch de oranje

After one of the most exhilarating matches of the Euro 2008 tournament, the Netherlands are back in action against World Cup runner-up France this afternoon…and, as you might expect, I will be watching.

Some people are calling this Holland team a revelation and all that, but despite the 3-0 dismantling of World Cup champion Italy I am very concerned that they are just not good enough defensively. And that because of this they will crush me emotionally unless I steel myself beforehand.

We can call them The New Orange after they have won something.

With all of this soccer to be watched, I will be out for the afternoon…and if the game doesn’t go well, don’t worry about me, I’ll console myself by hanging out with some Dutch girls.

Gouw gaat het is a pickup line in some places. I think.
