Spain & Netherlands Compete for World & Ryder Cups














So it turns out a couple of ancient adversaries (remember the Dutch Revolts back in the middle ages?) will be facing off in the 2010 World Cup final. The match will take place Sunday at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg.

The Netherlands vs Spain? Who saw that coming? I mean really. When Spain lost to Switzerland in their first match even some avid España fans had their doubts... and since the beginning the Netherlands have been thought of as "good but not great".

In the end though, many feel this will be an ultra-exciting final, with two good teams competing for their first World Cup Victory.

In a golf related sidebar... that may fuel additional competitive animosity... both countries have submitted bids to host the 2018 Ryder Cup Championship. Along with France, Germany Sweden and Portugal the two world cup finalist are candidates.













...and finally, what would the World Cup be without a touch of salaciousness? To that end, Paraguyan model Larissa Riquelme, has declared that she will still run nude through the streets of Asuncion despite Paraguay's loss to Spain, and Dutch porn star Bobbi Eden has promised via Twitter that she "will give a BJ to *bleep* all my followers" if the Netherlands wins the soccer tournament this weekend". The ladies are clearly ardent fans of Futbol.
