A dear friend of mine wrote she was so nervous yesterday, she almost ate her TV set.
This line in her email looked especially cute next to her signature line: head of the department at a bank.
Mishah's brother cried when he called Mishah yesterday.
Mishah has forwarded me a post from a fan forum, by someone from Crimea - here's my loose translation:
HAPPY VICTORY! I've no words... I was as happy (well, not as happy :)) in 1975 and 1986 (and it had nothing to do with our team):).
P.S. Even I was pleasantly surprised by the attitude toward our team in our small town (Yevpatoria), where almost everyone who moved toward or next to us were yelling "Ukraine the champion!" I was even more surprised by the cars and all driving by at ONE o'clock at night with UKRAINIAN flags and yelling "Ukraine the champion!"...
And this is Crimea :)))
"Our whole country wants to see Blokhin with his head shaved!" - that was one of the banners at the game yesterday, referring to the promise our couch, Oleg Blokhin, made - to shave all his hair off if Ukraine wins the World Cup.
