I have written in the past about Economics and American football (to recap: football coaches are a bunch of frightened little girls in tutus afraid to take a sensible risk) but today there is a story in the Economix blog of the NY Times about eco and what we should call football. Enjoy it while you watch what I expect will be a great match-up between Espana and Germany, a re-match of the 2008 European Cup final. Read it HERE.
The winner gets to play the Dutch, who are from Holland and live in the Netherlands (anyone who knows the history of why we have so many names for these people please comment!, and will have their work cut out for them against a very talented team. If you have stopped paying attention to the Cup because the US is out, you are missing out on a some great football.
