Spain celebrates it’s first World Cup triumph (AFP)

World Cup

Spain Takes First World Cup: In a game that featured two beautiful teams playing rough-and-tumble soccer, Andre Iniesta hit an overtime goal to give Spain it’s first World Cup title as it beat Netherlands 1-0, and concluded a successful World Cup in South Africa.

Nothing New for Iniesta: The Barcelona man is used to scoring timely goals.

Webb’s World: Yes, Howard Webb clearly missed what should have been a corner for Holland. But in such a tightly played game, only one player was shown a red card and the referee kept the game under control.

Paul the Octopus to Retire & Other Notes: Will Paul the Octopus be able to retire with a perfect record of prediction? Yeah, probably.


BP’s Big Cap: Right now, oil is free-flowing into the Gulf of Mexico, but with a better-fitting cap being placed on the geyser, British Petroleum hopes to get its oil disaster better contained.

Uganda Bombing: As the World Cup ends on a high note for South Africa, murderous suicide bombings in Uganda show there’s still plenty of chaos on the continent.


There’s Just One Diana: In women’s basketball, it’s Diana Taurasi and everyone else.

Tour de France: Lance Armstrong isn’t going to win, so feel free to ignore the rest of the tour if you wish.


Oliver Willis: Why Didn’t Obama’s DOJ Go After The New Black Panther Party For Voter Intimidation?

Broadway Carl: Some Must-reads from a master linker.

Osborne Ink: Remember, the rich are just different.

Gary Weiss: How to Lie in Plain Sight, Overstock.com Edition.

Phydeaux Speaks: Ah, the difference a year makes.
