World Cup Update:


Yesterday Joan and I went to see the Italy game at the renowned Italian World Cup viewing venue, Cafe Roma on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. We were there with a few hundred other Italian fans and a handful of brave Ukranians. It was sunny and hot outside, and even hotter inside. The Italian team did not disappoint, scoring only 6 minutes into the game. After that they never looked back. The keeper made a few amazings stops, and the strikers added 2 more goals to the tally before the end of the game. The mood in the cafe was jubilant to say the least, and after the game the crowd spilled out onto Commercial Drive, shutting the street down for a few hours. We joined the crowds for some time, and then drove around Vancouver for hours waving Joan's Italian flag from the car. Tuesday Italy plays Germany in what should be one of the most exciting games of the World Cup so far. We will join the crowds at the Cafe Roma once again, and hope for another successful match!

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow .. well later today if you wanna be technical. (No I never go to sleep :)

The problem is the internet never closes.. so how does a person know when to stop? Maybe when my eyes fall out and roll under the desk?

Ah, Who am I kidding.. I would likely just blow the dust off and pop them back in and keep typing.

:) Hope the Vaca is going splendidly :)
