World Cup Final this afternoon...

It will be the "over the hill gang" against the favored Italians. Should be a great game! I have a sense that Americans are beginning to catch on to World Cup fever.

There should be 30,000 to 40,000 in Boston City Hall Plaza to watch the game on a huge TV screen. This gathering is the idea of Mayor Thomas Menino. Of course Boston has a large Italian-American community.

I don't have a strong favorite but I must confess that I would not be disappointed if those veterans playing for France pulled the upset. I don't expect this to happen.

Enjoy the game!
