Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Today's games on ESPN:  

11:30 a.m. Eastern - Greece vs. Poland 

2 p.m. Eastern - Russia vs. Czech Republic


The Netherlands plays Denmark on Saturday, an ESPN match airing at 11:45 a.m. and then plays Germany on Wednesday.
Some of you more regular readers of the blog might recall that my pre-2010 World Cup prediction was that the Orange would win in South Africa, but instead, they lost in a very ugly and depressing way in the title match to Spain, a style that really upset a lot of Dutch football fans at home and around the world.
