The view from my room
I know I told ya all guys that I will post soon, but I couldn't this is my first day free after am back, had BUNCH of work to do and my dad had to take his appendix off, he came back from work with a pain his belly he thought that its cause of his being stressed all day, he BARED it till the next morning when his Dr checked on him and said "Dress up, you going to the hospital now, am suspicious about your appendix". Around 7 PM after the tests and the X-Rays the Dr recommended a surgeon for the operation, and said he have to do it now! (Even though they weren't sure it's his appendix). my dad was so funny when he said " its late now we can do it TOMORROW" the Dr said if so its on your responsibility and here is the 3 option that maybe the reason of your fever and pain, 1- appendix (that will be removed) 2-Colon (that would be cut and a hole will be made on the side of the body working instead of the Rectum) 3- Tumor.
If you wana know where I was when all that happen I will say WORK, I called mom after work that 8:15 PM asking her how dad is doing my sis answered saying your dad just got into surgery WHAT!!!!!!!!!! Driving so crazy to reach the hospital where I found mom, brother and 2 sisters waiting in the room "WHAT HAPPEN! WILL HE BE OK?", after telling me what happen and so and waiting for the operation to be don my sister mother in law came , that was so nice of her I have been told that she didn't allow mom to be alone :) and she was there before me .
After 1 hour we went down to check and see if they are done a nurse said they need more 1 hour that made us terrified. We went upstairs praying that it won't be his Colon. 3 min later my sister husband went upstairs to the room "it's the Appendix, it's the Appendix". After 15 min we went to see his :)
The Dr. told us that he never saw such a huge Appendix before his hip was full of infections and pus he had to wash it away with 4 liter of water.
Thank God this is over what a nightmare, he will be out tomorrow :) and the funny thing that you guess will be laughing for is what he asked me the 1 time he saw me in the ICU "what happen with work? Did you guys sell anything"?!!!!!!!!

You all saw the HEADBUTT Zidane gave Materazzi, watch the VIDEO if you didnt see it.
I think what Zidane did was stupid , crazy and unprofessional,but I also believe that everyone has their limits. Apparently, Materazzi called him a "dirty terrorist".
Watching this VIDEO of how dirty Materazzi is , geez sorry babe you deserve it !

Italy are world champions for the fourth time after beating ten-man France 5-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in Berlin's Olympiastadion on Sunday, 9 July 2006.
Twelve years after losing to Brazil in the first shoot-out in a FIFA World Cup™ Final, Italy made up for that heartbreak as all five men in blue converted their kicks to claim world football's greatest prize for the first time since 1982. For France the pain of defeat was compounded by the sight of Zinedine Zidane, on his last appearance as a professional, leaving the field having been sent off in extra time for butting Marco Materazzi off the ball.
It was Italy's first successful shoot-out in a FIFA World Cup after previous failures in 1990, 1994 and 1998 and ironically it was a miss from France’s David Trezeguet – whose golden goal had defeated the Azzurri in the final of UEFA EURO 2000 – that opened the door for Fabio Grosso to fire the winning spot-kick past Fabien Barthez and spark celebrations all the way from Bergamo to Bari.
If penalties can resemble a lottery, there could have been no more deserving matchwinner than Grosso, such a positive influence for Italy throughout this tournament. He was one of several Italians prominent in a first period where the Italians played the more fluent football, although it was France who took an early lead.
Eight years after scoring twice in the FIFA World Cup Final in Paris, Zidane opened the scoring with a seventh-minute penalty after Materazzi’s trip on Florent Malouda. By the 19th minute, however, Materazzi had made amends, the big defender heading the equaliser from Andrea Pirlo’s corner.
Although both sides threatened to score a second – notably Italy’s Luca Toni, who headed against Fabien Barthez’s crossbar before the break - neither managed to add a second. Extra time brought a scare for Italy when Buffon had to tip over Zidane's header but soon afterwards the France captain was making the sad walk to the dressing rooms.

GERMANY 0-2 a.e.t. ITALY
4 July 2006
German dreams of reaching the FIFA World Cup™ Final on home soil died in Dortmund as two goals in the final moments of extra time carried Italy into the Final as 2-0 semi-final winners on Tuesday, 4 July 2006.
With a penalty shoot-out looming, Fabio Grosso broke the deadlock in the 119th minute as he curled a left-footed shot past the despairing dive of Jens Lehmann from the right side of the penalty box. Substitute Alessandro Del Piero made sure of Italy's place in the Final when he beat Lehmann from close range in added time at the end of the extra period.
Italy now advance to their first FIFA World Cup Final since 1994 and their sixth overall. They will face the winners of Wednesday's Portugal-France semi-final in Berlin's Olympiastadion on Sunday, 24 hours after Germany have contested third place with the losers of that match in Stuttgart.

30 June 2006
Italy cruised into the semi-finals of Germany 2006 with a convincing 3-0 victory over Ukraine in Dortmund on Friday, 30 June 2006.
A sixth-minute strike from Gianluca Zambrotta set the tone for the evening and a second-half brace from Luca Toni merely compounded the misery for Oleg Blokhin’s side. Oleg Gusev, Andriy Gusin and Maksym Kalinichenko all went close for Ukraine, but were denied by a combination of the woodwork and some excellent goalkeeping by Gianluigi Buffon.
Italy now turn their attentions to a semi-final tie with the hosts in Dortmund on Tuesday, 4 July, while FIFA World Cup™ debutants Ukraine will return home justifiably proud of their efforts.
The game was cool, i really enjoyed it at home, i wished they scored more though :p
