Nice picture Urmaniac Good luck to both teams on Sunday. Both teams are very good, but I have to pick a team right, so I'm going with Italy...no offense to France members. Should be a very good game!

ITALY all the way! We have so many Italian-Americans here in America that own and operate so many bars and restaurants that they will be celebrating like mad, and we can celebrate with them! A very happy America! Can you imagine we doing that with the French? Bummer! (And I have many French friends so I know them intimately, so I know what I am talking about.)

Hello Cara,
I reckon Germany are the overall winners as the best hosts ever.

Except Cristiano... he absolutely has no interest whatsoever in the sport, well, usually. I think he sort of pitied me as I was so bummed out at the beginning of the World Cup, he offered to watch some of the Italian matches with me. Well, he may not be willing to admit though he was just as excited as I was in that semifinal match!

Hahahaaaa - Christiano is obviously the exception that proves the rule, Urmaniac!

Yes, this world cup has been great - mostly because of the wonderful organisation and low-key policing by the German officials.

Well done, Germany
