E dai!!!

What a night, eh? I was beginning to despair, especially when it looked like Zidane might get away with that headbutt. I hate it that now the emphasis is shifting from what a stronzo he was to what Materazzi might have said...

But let's not let that spoil the joy! I wish I was in Rome tonight, there's gonna be one hell of a party!

My God, flights to Rome are £250!! That's that out of the question then. I still can't believe it.

Che gioia! Bravissimi, ragazzi. Sei andata a Soho?

Si sono andata a ballare in mezzo alle strade di Soho con la bandiera alle spalle, era emozionate.

Gosh I wish I'd been in Italy last night too. My best friend rang from Piazza Maggiore in Bologna, it just sounded terrific. on the other hand, the two cars (one with a Bari number plate) that kept driving up and down the Ball's Pond Road waving the tricolore made me very happy (they might have spotted me at the window with my scarf wrapped round my head, shouting like a maniac).
Ma VIEEEEEEEEENIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!

All we need now is spangly princess' report from Rome. It certainly looked fantastic when the BBC did an outside broadcast from there last night.

I can report from Scotland that mad Italians everywhere went out with their flags, car horns blaring and drank grappa and red wine until the small hours. Also, I'm heading out to Tuscany to celebrate their in ten days time!

Byron, and did he?

Martino, Rome looked even more amazing last night when the boys lifted the cup.

Ginkers, lucky you. Did you manage to get a copy of the Gazzetta? I looked for it everywhere yesterday but they'd sold out, even in Italy. Then I read that they were reprinting it again so I got my uncle in Milan to get me one this morning.

It was indeed amazing, have only just updated since have been too busy partying/sleeping/partying again. photos to follow.


got 2 copies of the first run of the Corriere dello Sport from monday (only northerners read the gazzetta... terribly biased against anyone other than the big 3)

a.c.t said...

Hmmm you're probably right.I am a Northerner after all and particularly attracted to the pink pages ;-)

Spangly Princess said...

hehe I like the pink too. But the looks you get round here if you buy the gazzetta... well, similar to the looks I now get in Milan when I buy my Corriere up there. hehe. not that Italy is in any way still a desperately parochial country.
