OT: World Cup Final Open Thread

No real dog in this race, but I'll probably root for the underdog Dutch. There also seems to be a stronger contingent of Dutch fans on here, so be better fun here if you all are happy.

Spain looked very dangerous the first 10 minutes but haven't done much since (despite continuing to own the ball).  Hopefully the Dutch can get a sniff of the ball in the second half or Spain can do a little more with their possession, otherwise we're probably looking at a fourth straight grinding 1-0 win for Spain.

I love Jesus Navas.  He has extreme homesickness, so has never left Sevilla, and has admitted to disliking overnight trips for european cup ties.  It's amazing to see he's made it through 40 days in South Africa.

More then previous years we've seen some unbelievable players choke in front of goal.  Maybe it's that neither country has won it before and the pressure is a notch higher then usual?
