This About Captures It

My kids stayed up late last night to watch the Netherlands in the round of 16 at the World Cup (or the "eighth-finals" as they're called here).

I was embarrassed on behalf of adulthood.

This article has it about right, I think. The referee has been getting a lot of criticism from various quarters, including the unpardonable quip by FIFA's president that he would like to give the referee a yellow card. But what is he supposed to do when the players start behaving like frustrated children and insist on committing bookable offense after bookable offense?
