Congratulations to Italy, World Cup Champions. However, I have to admit, that's probably one of the greatest retirements I've ever seen. Better than John Kruk leaving the game after he got his average back up to .300 for his career.
All right, well, we told you we were going to be live-blogging each weekday World Cup match, and we weren't kidding around. They're about to kick off in Munich in the opening game of the World Cup, and we're gonna live blog the thing for you.
