It’s been an interesting World Cup. My wish at the start of the tournament was for a Spain versus Netherlands final with Spain edging it. That way, either the best team in the world is rewarded for several years of brilliant football OR the Dutch finally complete what they could not finish in 1974 and 1978. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would happen! Roll on Monday morning.
But my abiding memory of the World Cup 2010 (apart from France, England, and Italy all hilariously choking) is of Paul the Octopus who has been successfully predicting the Germany results – including the semi-final loss to Spain.
Thank goodness for the podcast – we can edit out all the cock ups from today’s show. Our minds wandering because there was no coffee at the station and we had one eye on this evening’s New Zealand vs Bahrain game in Wellington (we’re flying up after the show and will have a few brandies at The Matterhorn for you).
