This video was a waste of money. The tape was short, and a good 15 minutes of it were devoted to talking about Darren and how godly he is, not to teaching any kind of dance moves. Also, he moves very fast through all the steps and he faces the camera the whole time so you have to do everything backwards. If you want to waste your money on a video that is only out there to promote and glorify Darren, this is the video for you.

Tonight was the first game of the quarter finals and it was England against the host country Portugal. I was pulling for Portugal. What I got was an absolutely incredible game that went into 2 overtimes and was finally settled on penalty shots. In front of his home crowd, the Portuguese goalie shot the winning penalty kick and that was that. I was at the same bar and while there were fewer people there than last night, there was still real interest and people had definitely taken sides. I got completely wrapped up in the game and was elated when Portugal pulled it off. I was also quite happy when David Beckham, the English pretty boy superstar, missed his penalty shot. Icing on the cake. The moral of this story is that I am now completely sold on soccer and intend to follow it from here on out. It's a wonderful game and unlike the critics charge, far from boring. It is intense, athletically mind-blowing, and just plain cool... Provided of course that you care about the outcome. So my recommendation is to check your local listings and see if you can get a game from the tournament, pick a side, and enjoy the ride. With any luck you'll see something great.
