    I'm on the other side but I respect that level of passion. My respects to your colleague.

    Funny the way some people get so worked up about these events, it makes me want to shake them and say, "It's only a GAME, not the mass anihilation of your nearest and dearest! Get a grip!"

    It´s fun. But pitiful. I could see the same happening here, so I can understand.

    I think those people who have an ill obsession with football, who lived to see their national team participating in three World Cup Finals and losing them, were among those commiting suicide.

    Man this sucks. I was in Amsterdam at Museum square to watch the match, there were 100.000 people there, and maybe another hundred thousand in other squares in the city. It was such an amazing party, the atmosphere was so incredibly cool and friendly, like I've never seen it before. Even after we lost the match. Police said there were less fights and problems then most other Sundays.

    Congrats to Spain, you did play better throughout the game, I must admit. Though that referee definitely sucks (I think the Spanish will agree with me, remembering the Swiss vs. Spain travesty.) You were playing better, but you were in luck with some of Webb's decisions as well.

    Even though we lost, it was still a huge party afterwards. I can't imagine what it would've been like if we won. An American friend was with us (he took a later flight home just so he could stay and watch the finals with us), and he said he'd never seen this kind of partying going on anywhere.

    Either way, I had a great weekend, with one of the most horrible Mondays today.

    Here's a pick of Museum square yesterday. The big screen is in the bottom of the picture, and there are huge screens on each of the four columns as well. (I posted it as a link because the picture is huge, took me literally a couple of seconds to load, and I'm on a 20Mbit line!)

    The madhouse called Amsterdam!

    I was standing towards the left, a bit behind the first two columns.

    Every time somebody went to the toilet, we weren't expecting to be able to get back through the crowd, luckily, everybody did.

    I was so disappointed... it actually took me until monday to realize "wait a minute... what the hell is wrong with me? I don't even care about football"
    ik sprokkel wat dagen, drop baggage,
    soms heb ik geen zin om die koffers te dragen,
    ik laat los, los het op, word onzichtbaar
    en geef de buitenlucht wat ruimte terug
    dus.. nu zit ik op m'n fiets alsof het niets is,
    maar niets kan toch niet uit zichzelf pedalen laten draaien?
