Feeling Orange

Each championship I promise myself not to get involved in anything to do with football.

And each time I fail (sorry, Michiel!).

After last night’s match between Italy and The Netherlands, I am feeling orange all over again. Man, what a game! Counters left and right, good team play and a fairly pleasant interaction between the players individually.

I can only refer to a great post by Merel Roze: Nabeschouwing Nederland-Italie.

[poor translation by myself]

Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé Oléoléoléolé.

Minutes before the battle would begin the barman asked me if I wanted to join the betting pool.
‘Yes!’, I said, never missing the opportunity to win a game.

Strangely enough he warned me against adding my bet.
‘The only remaining score you can bet on is 3-0 for the Netherlands’, he said.
‘Ah, well, never mind then, hahaha’, I said, despite feeling like winning.
