James Rodriguez goes on and on about how it would be his "life's dream" to play for Real Madrid, then says, "but I will always respect my current club."

In Chevrolet terms, driving a Monte Carlo and wishing it were an El Camino.

This is a story I've never heard before: The day Harry Redknapp plucked a heckling West Ham fan out of the stands and put him in the game.

The officiating in the Brazil/Netherlands consolation game was atrocious. Robben gets fouled outside the box and it's called a penalty in the box. Thiago Silva drags him down in what the announcers were calling an obvious red card and only gets a yellow. Oscar gets fouled late in the match in the box and it's called a dive. The collision that caused the "dive" led to the Netherlands player being carted off.

I hope it's not an omen for tomorrow. This has been a great World Cup and it deserves a finish that lives up to that.

I picked an interesting couple of days to go to a friends' cottage with no internet/tv/radio/wireless connections.

Howler also covered the story on their podcast.
