Father's Day

Your final reminder: Father's Day is tomorrow. Of course we stand by ready to serve you with any of your bakery, chocolate or candy needs. If you need a break from your other shopping, stop in and get one of our great frozen yogurts.

The Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Mocha Fudge, Pistachio, Banana Macadamia Nut and Marshmallow. Tonight is buy one, get one free (limit one, excludes XL) from 6 PM to 8 PM.

The World Cup is moving right along with the round robin reaching its half-way point today. The USA plays its match against Italy today at 2:00 PM (Central). Here's to hoping that we can do a little more than we did against the Czech Republic. We need a win to have any hope of moving further into the tournament.

Oliver Neuville scores in the 91st minute crushing the hopes of Poland and pushing Germany into the next round.

Teams that have clinched an advance: Germany, England, Argentina, Portugal and the Netherlands. Argentina did so in very impressive fashion yesterday with a 6-0 trashing of Serbia-Montenegro. This game featured some very impressive passing and some excellent goals providing many highlights for ESPN.

I'd hate to have to sit behind those hats.

I'm sure that most of you have heard of Adidas and Puma. These two shoe brands are some of the most popular in the soccer world (over half of the teams in the World Cup are wearing either an Adidas or Puma kit). What you may not know is that the Puma company is a result of a split in 1948 between the two founding brothers of Adidas.


Addendum: The USA managed a draw against the world power house Italian team. This draw (thanks for the own goal Cristian Zaccardo), combined with the Czech Republic's stunning loss against Ghana means that team USA still has a chance to advance to the elimination round. Here is the simple route: Italy beats the Czech Republic and the USA wins against Ghana. Result: Italy (9 Points) and the USA (4 Points) advance. The hard way: Italy ties the Czech Republic and the USA beats Ghana with a goal differential of 5. Result: Italy (7 Points) and the USA (4 Points) advances over the Czech Republic (4 Points) because of a +1 Goal Differential. I have just become a very big Italy fan!

Passionate kiss like spider web, soon lead to undoing of fly.

I'm confused by that.
