Kaboom!

It seems that rainy weather, burn bans, and city restrictions weren't enough to stop everyone from celebrating our nation's 230th birthday yesterday with the time honored fireworks tradition. I heard fireworks going off past twelve in the North Dallas area. Speaking of rain, how cool was it to actually get some sustainable precipitation? I know it wasn't the best day for it, but it is good to actually have gotten some measurable amount. We may even be in for a little bit later in the week. :)

The Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, German Chocolate Cake, Cappuccino, Raspberry Cheesecake and Banana. Today is $1.79 cone day (regularly $2.72).

I'm pretty sure that I forgot to mention last week that we got a new type of brittle. We now have a sugar free sunflower seed brittle. It may sound odd, but it tastes great!

World Cup Report: The host team Germany went down in defeat yesterday at the hands of team Italy. The 2-0 final makes it seem like the Italians dominated, but the match didn’t see it first score until extended play in the 119th minute. The second came one minute later. This was a crushing defeat for a German team that really wasn’t supposed to even be this far into the tournament.

The second goal in the 120th minutes finishes Germany's 2006 World Cup run.


Later today, Portugal will match up against France. The loser of this game will match against Germany on Saturday the 8th and the winner will match against Italy on Sunday the 9th to play for the 2006 World Cup. I predict an Italy v France final with an Italy win.

Some notes from the sideline: Mexico has chosen not to renew the contract of their national team’s coach, Ricardo Lavolpe, because as president Alberto de la Torre of the Mexican Football Federation says, Lavolpe “had failed to provide ‘that fifth World Cup match’ that he had promised.” FIFA is considering using two referees in future World Cup matches to avoid some of the outrageous calls that we have seen this year. The French cabinet put aside the business of running the country yesterday to discuss the match against Portugal for a bit. It is official; England is ashamed of its lame performance in the 2006 World Cup. As center-back Rio Ferdinand says, "It's embarrassing if I'm being honest. I was a bit embarrassed to set foot outside the door when I went shopping with my girlfriend Rebecca."
