The Scottish Rock Garden Club....... For People Who Love Plants
Best part of the night was seeing Queen Sofia of Spain jumping up and down with joy when the Spanish scored! The Spanish Royal Family are very good at getting themselves around the world to support their countrymen in sporting events and in looking truly enthusiastic about whatever sport is taking place.... must be a boost for their players' morale.... even if they're not monarchists!!
Queen Sofia shaking hands with Puyol-wearing-a-towel after the semifinal was a classic!!
I'm thinking it might be a while before the Dutch forumists are able to comment....

Very poor game in footballing terms, not helped by Howard Webb's poor control. I have a great admiration for Webb but I think the occasion was just too much for him. Congratulations to Spain though for at least trying to play football. Can't for thr life of me understand why Holland resorted to trying to kick the Spaniards off the pitch. If they'd taken the game to Spain they could have won it. Glad Diego Forlan won the Golden Ball.........what an advert for the beautiful game he is.....and for humanity in general.
