I will soon report on the World Cup in Germany, now that my sympathy levels are restored for the host country, after its 2:0 loss against Italy.

But first some related news from the Cedar wonderland:

"After Italy beat Germany 2-0 in the semifinals, rival fans in Beirut fought each other with bottles, sticks and chairs, and seven people required treatment in hospital, Lebanese security officials said Wednesday...
Angered by the Brazilian team's unexpected defeat to the French last week, its fans apparently vented their spleen against German supporters on Tuesday night by setting off fireworks in green, red and white -- the colors of the Italian flag -- for more than an hour."
