KNVB (Dutch Football) Pride

KNVB (Dutch Football) Pride
The Dutch people in Canada aren't very visible, except during World Cup.

Then suddenly you realize how many Dutch Canadians there are in Toronto alone, where Oranje (Orange) Power pops up in many places.

KNVB stands for Koninklijke Nederlandse Voetbalbond, or Royal (from the world Kingly) Dutch Football Association.

Hahaha, all for a bit of fun! The Dutchmen in Canada are very harmless ; )

And Chris, you may be surprised that many Asians and non-Dutch people support the Dutch team.

I've heard.... I still hope they lose tonight, because the after-parties keep me out of my sleep :D

I know! I hate, hate, hate losing sleep. We've enough problems getting a restful sleep without the FIFA fever already!

I must add it's hilarious to watch the Brasilian fans after their loss to Germany. Many fans crying and looking so sad as if their children/ spouse/ parents just died from a horrible accident. Seriously?? The sad part is indeed not that their national football team lost so badly, it's that so many fans worry so much about a bunch of spolied millionaires kicking a ball around.

I'm not much of a fan myself. So far this FIFA World Cup 2014 event, I think I've watched a total of 30 minutes of the games, and only because I was waiting for my friends to arrive to pick me up to go somewhere.
