the winner takes it all

party of ten
or eleven
we fried stuff
potatoes, aubergine, tomatoes, pepper, onion, garlic..

i had made a mix tape with swedish music. (tempting fate, sort of..)
i had difficulty finding enough songs. yes everyone knows abba. but what else? the first name i thought of was a-ha. but weren't they from norway? after a bit of searching i came up with this lot:
the cardigans
ace of base
europe (crap heavy metal band)
eagle-eye cherry & neneh cherry
if i forgot a great band from sweden, that's your fault. you should have told me!

i wasn't wearing orange, because i don't really have anything orange. this comes close:

oh and yes, we won!</b>

the dutch didn't play that well. they said so themselves. but neither did the swedes. both teams had a couple of big chances though. after 120 minutes of football it was still 0-0. knowing holland's shocking record of penalty shoot-outs we feared the worst. we've gone out of the last three european championships on penalties.

after five penalties each, it was 4-4. cocu had hit the post and ibrahimovic had kicked the ball over the goal. so now it was "sudden death"

sweden was to shoot first. the shot of sweden's captain mellberg was saved by van der sar.
next was arjen robben, who's going to play for chelsea next season. and he scored! this means we're in the semi finals and we're playing against portugal on wednesday. only a week ago i wouldn't have given them a chance. but now? who knows? and why not?
