SPAIN 1 - NETHERLANDS 0... Why It Happened This Way.

The team from the Netherlands went down yesterday, a team known for its beautiful style of play missed opportunity after opportunity and could not put the ball in the net. Against a team like the Spaniards when an opportunity arises you need to take full advantage of it because who knows when you may get another chance.

Netherlands came out playing physical trying to ruff up the Spanish team to not allow them to get comfortable on the field and try to limit their passing and goal scoring chances, and for the most part it worked Netherlands seen chances but just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. Arjen Robben in the 62nd minute got a beautiful through ball up the middle that led him beautifully right at Casillas but just didn't have the height to get it up and over and into the net.

Spain on the other hand played the way they have all tournament, methodically just slowly weathering the storm from the opponent until finally Iniesta got the ball on the right side of the net and slipped behind the Holland defense and put a beautiful shot home to win the World Cup.

This game in my opinion didn't live up to the 2006 final between France and Italy, that game had star power in Zidane and Henry for France and Buffon playing out of his mind for the Italian side, that game featured penalties and beautiful goals plus a penalty shootout that kept the average sports  fan entertained not just the hardcore soccer fan. However, this game was not that way any normal fan would've given up and changed the channel at halftime which I'm sure many did.

This World Cup was overall entertaining and hopefully will give the United States more intrest in the game and help our National team to get even farther come 2014 when the World Cup heads to Brazil.

Leave me your thoughts!

Update on NBA offseason.

Point Guard Derek Fisher arrived today in Miami to speak with the Heat executives to discuss possibly signing with the team, and there to meet him was # 6 Lebron James.

Now i dont know about you but if LeBron James was there to meet me and tell me to sign with his team i would highly consider signing.

And in NBA news Guard Raymond Felton has signed a 2 year 15.8 million dollar contract with the New York Knicks.

RUMORS of the day!

NBA: It looks as though what we all thought would happen is going to happen.. Sources have said that Eric Spoelstra will be on a very short leash when it comes to coaching the Heat this season, and after much speculation and talking that Pat Riley will come down from his executive suite to coach the team it seem as though that could happen if Spoelstra doesn't get the team to the level they should be at with the talent they have.

MLB: Many deadline deals could happen soon but one of the main  rumors out there is that Ted Lilly could be getting shipped from the Chicago Cubs to the New York Mets. The Toronto Blue Jays also have many deadline trading pieces.

NFL: Not much as for rumors today in the NFL other than that New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis is more than prepared to holdout during training camp if a new contract deal is not reached.
LeBron & Bosh to get reportedly 110 million and Wade at 107.
