FEVER!!! and what a lovely way to burn!
And it now comes in new colours:
GREEN and GOLD
That is of course apart from the all time favorite AZZURRO
I am of course talking about the World Cup. Specifically about Tuesday morning (Monday night of you are in Europe). About our two teams winning their first games in the tournament.
But lets face it...Australia's victory was so sweet. Partly because it's the first time we ever score in the Cup. Also because many people doubted we could win any games once we got there.
So we sat there, my wonderful hubby and me, late at night watching the game. He tried to keep from yelling so as not to wake princess Angel up. We sat there simmering throughout the first 70 minutes of the game. Then I got up and announced I was going to bed. There was no point!! the best that can happen is that we'd draw...and that's not so ideal because it would increase the pressure on us when we play Brazil.
But i just lingered at the door. Just stood there saying, 5 more minutes and I'm gone! Then another 5 minutes...and that's it.
And boy am I glad I stayed!!!!
Because right at the end, right at the 83rd minute...the temperature soared. Still, a draw is not so good...but at least it's not a loss.
Then the green and gold fever truly exploded!
Cahill scored again!
Now we were both struggling to contain our excitement.
And then the brilliant Aloisi scored the third goal.
It was difficult to go to sleep after that high...but we knew we had to. Italy played Ghana at 5:00 am and it was after 1:00am when we finally went to bed.
Of course Italy won their game against Ghana.
Could it really happen? Could Australia go through to the next round?
You know, if Aus get second place in the group, and Italy get first in their group...Australia play Italy!!
That would be really interesting :)
Enjoy the fever, football fans....
AUSSIE! AUSSIE! AUSSIE!
and of course
I wish we could also cheer for the Pharaohs...but maybe next time!
