Italy win the World Cup / The party is over

ITALY have now won the World cup, and the incredible party that hs been WM2006 is now over!
Nicole and I were at a friend's birthday bash on Saturday to watch the Germany versus Portugal (Germany 3:1) match, and we had a great time. It was a very pleasant evening and the results made everyone there very happy!
On the Sunday the whole family went to some friends house to watch the big game - we settled into the garden and had sausages off the barbie, salads and a few beers. Ulf set the TV up outside and we all sat on garden chairs to watch the game. It was another warm evening so it was great to sit outside and watch the game, with Italy getting up on Penalties at the end.
So, now for some sleep! It has been a brilliant four weeks! Germany has had the best party atmosphere, and Berlin with all its live venues and events has been a great place to be. I have been very fortunate to have had the chance to see some games live, and have also enjoyed all of the different venues that were on offer for the public.
The event was wonderfully organised, the weather was great and the football, for the most part, was good to watch!
As for the sweeps, Jocelyn and Alexander were the winners! When asked, Alexander still wanted France to win 'because they knocked Australia out'!, but he still takes home 80 Euros from the sweep!
