It’s over

No-one is quite sure how it happened; the Elftal (the Eleven – the Dutch national team), has gone from runner-up in the World Cup 2 years ago to out in the first round of the European Cup.

I’m disappointed; when the team does well the city breaks out in orange fever with open air screenings of the games outside all the local bars, and everyone wears orange – even me, to the surprise of my neighbour.

On the upside it will be quieter in the evenings without all the street parties.

But I had the Dutch down as finalists in the work pool. So I’m losing there. Mind you I had them against Germany in the final match, and losing so perhaps it’s just as well.
