  1. Congratulations Herman! It doesn’t matter to me but it’s good for you. And Mr. Bowie is there on the flag. I bet he was there rooting for your team all the while!

  2. Lukaku may have finished at least one of the 17 chances Belgium missed if he had been in the game earlier. Did he have a disagreement with Wilmots? Regards Oranje Peet

  3. Bruce just came in from watching the game in the historic Kimo Theater, and gave me the news, but he said it was a great game. The Mayor of Albuquerque opened the Kimo Theater for soccer fans to watch the game on a full-sized theater screen over a long lunch hour. So even though the US lost, their fans got to watch the game in a historic movie theater, while they enjoyed popcorn and Coca Cola.

  4. I really shouldn’t “like” your post, but I did anyhow. Congrats to your team, Herman. The best team always wins and since USA is out, I’ll now be rooting for Belgium.

  5. My last client asked if I knew who had won the match. I went straight to your blog. Knew I’d get the breaking news!

    Me, I don’t care as long as I get to see pictures of Mr. Bowie.

  6. Concatulations. And Mr. Bowie should always be a part of the flag! XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  7. Congratulations Belgium (and Mr. Bowie)……the USA is behind in the world of soccer popularity but catching up quickly….who knows what the future may hold!!!!!


  8. Wooop Woooop, Yabba Dabba and all those good ol’ football terminologies….BTW, did I mention I don’t know Football? Your country has a cute king on their flag, I like my kings fluffy 😀 xoB

  9. Dear buddies at HoB, plans are already laid to be glued to the TV tomorrow, Saturday, 5 July 2014. At a bar. At 11:00 in the morning. It will be 5:00 in Belgium, or thereabouts, so beer will be consumed here in fairly large quantities probably, without regard to the morning hour. Don’t know whether the beer they serve will be Belgian, but a new friend from Vlezenbeek has chosen the pub, so we can but hope. GO BELGIUM!! Sr. Messi may be all on his own and that ain’t enough to beat the RED DEVILS!!

    • Yeah! Thanks for this warm support, my dear friend! We’re getting ready for a great match. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”
      I’m going to watch the game together with my Dad. Let’s hope we can have a party afterwards…
