Getting much better activity here than at this time last year, when I was also away for most of the month. I'm being, perhaps, a bit more attentive and, possibly, it's a testament to my growing fame. I'm not sure how long I can keep this up as things seem to get even busier over the next few weeks.

The soccer frenzy is dying down now, finally. Angela was fairly enthusiastic the day of the championship match, in fact I had never witnessed such unbridled enthusiasm from her about a sporting event, but I could not imagine what a reflection it was. After we arrived here, it seemed as if the match was on everyone's lips. I CAMPIONI DEL MONDO was a phrase which could be seen and heard everywhere. Also, the French player, Zinedine Zidane (or as the English announcer was calling him, Zee Zee), who used his melon as a battering ram on Italian Marco Materazzi, knocking him to the ground, has become the butt of many jokes in the media.

Otherwise, just killing time right now in town in the early evening while the ladies go try on dresses. Think I'll go grab a gelato...

my wife think zee zee is the pinacle of hot in futbol - even more than beckham - i am sorry to say that i was rooting against him for that reason primarily and received some carnal joy by his ejection.

PLUS - i like italian soccer more then the french variant -

honestly, i didn't know much about him until this whole World Cup thing started... we went wild when he was ejected... anyhow, lacking sufficient American sports fixes in China, the World Cup was a nice substitute... i'm a fan now...
