When I was little (7-8 yrs) we lived in W. Germany. Took a vacation to the Netherlands that I will never forget. Much later in life (mid 90s) I used to watch the Dutch league on ESPN in the afternoons, which is what got me into watching the game on tv. Fell in love with Bergkamp, the DeBoers, Overmars, and all the rest. (That's my memory anyway.)

Hehe. Thank you for sharing. Do you remember where you were on your vacation?

I remember we went to Amsterdam and took a canal tour and then the boat took us across some water to a place where they showed how wooden shoes are made. And we went to the Keukenhoff Gardens where us kids stayed on the bus playing Mother May I and Red Light, Green Light while the adults walked through the rain looking at tulips. And we stayed at a small hotel on the North Sea. There was a big dog there. Some of this was part of a group tour, but I think the hotel on the North Sea was just the family.

In some ways it's my perfect vacation. Cool wet weather, interesting locales, some aspects of it guided, most not.

Hehe. Sounds like a classic, old-school tour. Canals, wooden shoes, tulips and rain.

Tulips and wooden shoes and no red-lighted ladies in shop windows? I sense an imbalance.

Will you be setting up The SF MC FIFA WC FB 2014 BRA Pool, NOBD?

By the way, good to see that we will be competing in the English Premier fantasy league throughout the season!

I hadn't thought of those, but you're right.
