Go USA! I’m so excited…the USA beat Algeria today with a late-game goal! Final score: 1-0! Landon Donovan scored the winning goal that propelled his team to the 2nd round of the World Cup!  Great job Landon!

Do you think U.S. coach Bob Bradley would be interested in having a frog like me on his team?

Okay, I must admit, I was really bummed yesterday when Team USA lost to Ghana…a tough loss for the Red, White, & Blue!  Hoping to make me feel better,  Pierre invited me to watch a match with him today–Germany vs. England!    Go, Go, Go…..Germany!  They won!

Go Germany!


Update: 7/3/2010
Today Germany went up against Argentina–what a game! Germany prevailed with a score of 4-0 sending them into the World Cup semi-finals!

Interestingly, Miroslav Klose scored two of the goals, bringing his World Cup total to 14 goals. Brazil player Ronaldo currently holds the record–15 goals.

Don't Cry for Me Argentina!

    Does anyone want to see who Polly’s favorite team really is? Way to go Germany, congratulations for getting into 1/8 finals against England. Polly will be watching!


  2. Black, Red, and Gold are Polly’s true colors?

  3. Does Germany have a soccer team? I didn’t know that!

  4. Polly #5 don’t you know what the three stars on their uniforms means? It means that they were World Champs 3x~ ’54, ’74, & ’90!

  5. Sam,

    I’m more of a football (American version) frog and follow the West Virginia Mountaineers and Pittsburgh Steelers. I am caught up in this soccer craze a little bit, and I’ll be cheering on the USA! Well…and Mexico. If the winner is a CONCACAF team, it’ll be cool!

  6. Love the shoes!
