Life is All Right On The Rhine

The 4th of July seems like a good time for my first World Cup post. If you didn’t see the epic Italy-Germany match this afternoon, try to catch the highlights between hot dogs and fireworks tonight – some incredible playing on both sides, especially Italy’s two overtime goals. The second shot was the most impressive of the game – an open man just ran in and popped the ball right over the goalie’s head. Talk about a nail in the coffin. Here’s a little Germany/World Cup playlist for you:

Elliott Smith – “Brand New Game”: mp3
Beirut – “Rhineland (Heartland)”: mp3
Radiohead – “Rhinestone Cowboy”: mp3
Gang Starr – “No Shame In My Game”: mp3

Enjoy the 4th, folks. I’ll probably be sitting on the roof of my building looking for fireworks.
