The Netherlands NT have arrived back at home and promptly began partying like it was 1999 on a celebratory canal cruise. Over 500,000 fans turned out in Amsterdam to support the team and their second place spot at the biggest footy competition in the world.
Much like the Spanish, it would seem the booze of choice post-game for ‘ballers that need to par-tay is… beer. Cheers, Johnny!

Another World Cup has come and gone. Hearts have either been broken or burst open with pride. Credit card debt has its moment in the sun. All the Budweiser has been tapped dry. And tears. So many tears have been shed, we wish we’d gotten into the eye cream/cold spoon merch six months ago.
We’ve lovingly covered crying men in the past. But this time around, it’s different. The stakes were so high, emotions so on edge. And thus, the cry-game was elevated to new, lip quivering heights.
Let’s examine, shall we?
Above is Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan, demonstrating I Let An Entire Continent Down tears. We feel for him, Kickettes. Gyan had a great tournament, but at that crucial moment during Ghana’s quarterfinal match against Uruguay, he failed to convert a penalty kick that would have helped his team advance to the semifinals and kept African hopes alive. We’re hoping someone has Fed-Exed him an industrial sized box of Ferrero Rocher. And a therapist. Bless.
Be still our (barely) beating and hungover hearts.
There’s nothing we like more than to see than hot footballers messing around when under the influence of alcohol. Especially when those “certain someone’s” are Pepe Reina on the phone with his mum. FYI, Pepe’s sexy stock is rising faster than Sergio Ramos can down that bottle of Budweiser. The fabulous Cesc Fabregas, however, is a light weight and should be mocked accordingly. And then cuddled.
Speaking of Sergio, our fave pony has let fly with the English, rendering us incoherent with squee. What is it about broken English that sets our hearts aflutter?
