World Cup Fever

Half the world is influenced by soccer. Families torn apart due to tele problems, soapies or matches.
For me there is not just the orange soccer team. I wear orange all the year with my coaching of a basketball team .

And the soccer world is nothing new to me either. Johan Cruijff, Dick Advocaat (Korean national team coach), Marco van Basten (not for his ankle but his knee at age 12), Wim van Hanegem have been on my fathers examination table for diverse medical problems.

This remind me of another great event here in Holland, the Rotterdam Marathon. In late 80’s I was with my father on the way to a setting where he was going to give a lecture on the running legs, the evening before the start. As an example for the lecture I was carrying a model of a leg and some bones of the feet under leg and upper leg. During our walk from parking lo to the setting we were gazed by passengers. Cause was the fact that just two days before some police officers were shot in the area there. We decided to cover the skeleton parts before we were hold by police persons.

Now I am drowned in all types of orange stuff. Banners, flags, hats, german pants, orange chickens, fake clogs, and so on. Luckily enough not in my house. Orange shirts enough and not just these days.

mmm lots of orange here too.
We used to travel to Uni on the bus. We got so many strange looks from other passengers, when we produced our pieces of skeleton to use in our lectures.

HI DP...

Orange makes a nice change from RED & WHITE.....
That's ALL I see....flags, banners....EVERYWHERE !!!!!

And as for false legs....., I remember a joke I heard years ago.

A newly married couple got to the honeymoon suite.They were not very experienced in the sexual site of things, and the man did not know that the woman also had a false leg
The man said to the woman " I'll go to the bathroom to get undressed, you get ready in here...then just get into bed, lay on your back and open your legs.
So she got undressed....took of the false leg and laid it on the bedside table.

When the man returned to the bedroom, he looked at his bride in the bed, then looked at the leg on the bedside table and said.....

"Good god, I didn't mean you had to open your legs THAT wide. !!!!


So she undressed.....
