Oregon Coast near North Bend, April 2007
Are you tired of hearing about Landon Donovan’s goal yet? Even if you are I think you should check out this link.
It’s clips of crowd shots watching the final moments of the game. Remember the set up? We’d watched 90 minutes of the US unable to score. I’ve watch the US in a number of World Cups. I’ve learned to keep my expectations cautious.
Then the US makes the run and they strike and goalkeeper blocks it but the ball is loose and Donovan comes in and hits it.
So in these clips you see every one in despair, then watching the run hopeful, then ARGH! But then AHHHH!!!!
Seriously if you’re going to waste 60 more seconds online, just watch one or two of the first clips. It made me every bit as happy as seeing the actual goal in real time.
I was a slacker today. I had to get some work stuff done.
The Italian diving team got sent home. I love this team and the idea that I’m never going to get to see Cannavaro taking his shirt off after a game again makes me weepy but they didn’t do anything to impress me until they were down by 2 to Slovakia. Good-bye! But Slovakia gets a marked down a few points for blatant time wasting.
I foolishly fired up the Cameroon v. Netherlands game when I should have been watching Denmark v. Japan. I only watched the first half. Cameroon’s goalkeeper is named Soulymanou and he was wearing purple. I love the purple goalie outfits.
Every once in awhile I find myself frantically looking for something I don’t need.
Like today. I have two hair clips in my desk. I wanted to put my hair up and I only need one clip but I wanted to know where the second one was. I kept searching the different drawers trying to find the second one. Why? I had the one I needed. But I had to know where the other one was. I don’t get it.
