Today is the first semi final of the 2010 World Cup. The Netherlands vs. Uruguay. Due to Canada’s lack of soccer expertise I’ve long cheered for the Dutch during International futbol competitions. For the balance of the World Cup I require those close to me to refer to me as only as Van Arsenault (this isn’t entirely true I just needed to add a sentence. It actually beats the Van Wilder joke that I had originally put in this space. Lame but true).
I even tried to buy a jersey off the Asian market from the friendly Wookie (and potential 2010 McMaster Hall of Fame candidate, Matt Whelan). However my girth was shockingly (not really) too large for the Asian 3x label (quelle surprise!). Luckily I was able to pawn off this beautiful oranje jersey to true Dutchie so all was not lost.
Through some perseverance I was able to collect enough oranje fibres to sew together a shirt so please don’t fret my friends I won’t be topless during today’s semi final. Even better I was able to buy the Association a little oranje shirt so he’ll accompany me to the Dutch party this afternoon.
How are you spending your afternoon? Here’s a preview of my afternoon. I’m spending my afternoon with my favourite Dutch friends.
Hup Holland!! Enjoy the match.
