    At least your outside doing something. Sitting inside with your boots on eating chips would be a different story.

    please don't let it end tomorrow.

    you guys already made my whole country happy. smiling faces everywhere you go. it's talk of the town: "did you see it?" is the phrase of the moment. it's pure power. actually it's much better than 2006 and this was great already. beating the krauts in the extra time is pure gold.

    thank you for this enjoyable hours.

    Might want to go around and tell the expats and second generation Italians with citizenry that they aren't real Italians, bro. I'm sure it would go over pretty well...

    which recipe or cookbook did you have? well, as simple as the cabbage rolls sound, it needs some training to get them right. mangalitza sausage sounds delicious.

    e.g. szegediner gulash, a lot of sweet dishes. i have to give it a thought. some dishes are already a matter of fact. unfortunately the good cook books are almost all in german, pity. i'll do a research for you.

    wine - red or white. too many to mention, though.
    beer - give me a direction, please.

    Of course those with only Italian descent won't be as bothered about the national side as someone born and raised there and who still lives there.

    hmmh, i dunno. imo, the factor is being into footy.

    i have a friend - austrian. he looks like al pacino. had a testarossa. his wife drives a maserati. he spends every single minute of spare time in italy. he has no interest in football at all. go figure.

    Immigrants tend to be very patriotic because they do not live in the country of their origins anymore and therefore have a certain romantic views of it..

    How many proud Italo-americans do talk Italian and they love to carry anything with the Italian flag on..

    Italy's style of play has been a pleasant surprise (I did not know anything about their current coach), even if the results have fit the pattern -- whenever there is scandal in Serie A, the Azurri rise to the occasion in tournament play. The Germans look talented, but still too young (especially at the back).

    I for one would like to see Spain win, just to set up the historic triple for others to chase.


    When was the last time Spain gave up two goals in one game in a major tournament? :eh:
