Shouting "Hup Oranje" in the middle of an office

One thing that's bugging me much more than the vuvuzelas, or the controversial Adidas Jabulani ball this world cup is the game times. I am in work and so only get to watch one in three of the daily games.

12:30, 15:00 and 19:30 makes for pretty lean pickings for us workers. Surely 15:00, 18:00 and 20:00 would be better.

BTW is Hup Oranje what the Dutch fans actually say? Thought they looked very solid in their first game. Denmark are no mugs so that is a decent indication. The Netherlands and Germany could be two teams to keep an eye on.

Hup Oranje? Yes! We REALLY say that. It's basically 'hip, hip orange.' :o)
