i've been actively following the world cup this year (trying to), and was really rooting for argentina, but they got eliminated in the quarterfinals so i had to choose another team to support and holland was an easy choice.

attending the match was really an experience in itself, and i even got to see one of my all-time idols - nelson mandela.

unfortunately spain won. i'm really not gonna argue about who played better (*cough* holland *cough*) because i think once you get behind a team, everything they do is just, fair game i guess? hahaa. but okay fine. holland was a little dirtier. but they played well. so.
anyway. it really was a once in a lifetime experience (although my brother has been to the last final as well. so i dont know why he keeps saying "once in a lifetime". it was for me at least.).
