Red Devils

Before you think I'm going crazy ... no, I don't feel like going to hell ;-). I want to talk about our official football team that are called the "Red Devils" :-). For the first time in 12 years we're back in the game!!!

Yesterday evening was their first match against Algeria which they won with a 2-1 score after an exciting game. Congrats to our team! Everyone in Belgium is sooo proud of you! Now we can only hope for a good result the next two games. This Sunday against Russia and next Thursday against South Korea.

You can't even imagine all the merchandising that you can buy here in the shops :-). I think we started seeing those things some 1 - 2 months ago. Personally I like their shirts best (not that I would buy one :-).

And guess what I did at that moment ... make a new block for the Dear Jane quilt! ;-)

How are your teams doing?

Well, Italy did well in their first game, beating England. And because my DH is Dutch, oranje is even more important in this home - thanks to Chile beating Spain, they just became certain of passing!
