Did you hear that Nelson Mandela's granddaughter was killed in a car accident returning home from a concert? That's why he didn't plan to be at the opening ceremonies.

Yeah. It was his great-granddaughter. A one-car accident, and the person driving was apparently drunk. He survived.

I only saw the second half, so I missed both goals. The one scored by the USA was... interesting. I bet the English goalie is glad he doesn't have to go home and face his countrymen right away.

Well, I honestly can't imagine the hell on earth he will endure having to live with himself after this. My guess is when a drunk driver kills a child (well, any human being, but especially a child No ), that their own self-flagellation has to be worse than all the animosity the rest of us feel for them. I remember many many years ago my sister almost hit a child, going through a residential neighborhood----he was 6 or 7 and just ran out in front of her. This wasn't a drunk driving issue, but the fact that she could have taken the life of a child, even without it being her fault, was enough to really mess her up. I can't imagine if she actually HAD hit him! Just imagine taking the life of a child because of making a poor decision, such as getting behind the wheel drunk. I will never understand it. scratchead Blue

Argentina is one of my top 5 favorites Vanesa. I can't believe they only made 1 goal in that game though!... unless they were not playing their best. Germany is a beast! Their game against Australia was 4 - 0. It was a massacre lol

Hi, Carol:

I suppose I must be thankful the team could make a goal...Their play was not excellent before the World Cup, so...what may we espect they would do Now? banghead banghead Argentina used to be a very good soccer team, but after Maradona was appointed as the Team Technical Director, it turned to be a fiasco mad .

Messi is a great soccer player, but poor guy..he cannot do it all by himself. I hope the whole team could play like Messi does! Ooops

But I love your Wallpaper with Messi in it! Wonderful job! Messi is my favorite in this World Cup , I must confess it. And he is very good looking too. ShyGirl Wink
