Well, Italy outplayed Germany, and they didn't even cheat this time, unless you count the way they had Torsten Frings removed. I suppose they did rather sort of somewhat deserve this win, but I'm still not happy.

Sheesh. There's just no pleasing some people, eh?

I got new (well, old - well, stuff I been meaning to buy and I finally got around to it) music, so today's song du jour of the day today (ha! I crack me up!) is All Right, Chill Out, by BrainStorm. Not the angry German metalheads, but the happycute Latvian pop group who say "Yeah" a lot.

Oh! How weird is this? Walking from the subway station to the office this morning, I saw a gaggle of little kids, maybe 5 or 6 years old, herded by four women (so some kind of kindergarten field trip, obv.) walking down the street, and they were all singing Jingle Bells! I know they were German kids, because they were pronouncing it "Chingle Belce," but dude. Why where they singing an American Christmas song in July?

Seriously, that was one long ass, dramatic game. I almost fainted from excitement twice!
