60

Today started somewhat unexpectedly - coffee and cake in honour of Johan Cruijff's 60th birthday!

I was wondering why there were balloons outside of my office building but well, this was the explanation.

[To not confuse the non-Dutchies too much, this isn't a national holiday. There is actually a proper reason (well...) why it was celebrated at my place of work but that would be giving away a bit much]

I have to say that I think the media exposure is very much out of proportion. Okay, he is considered the God of soccer, but for crying out loud an entire evening of television for a birthday of someone is just plain ridiculous. Don't you think?

Yup, it's quite ridiculous isn't it... Not using my tv much lately so have missed most of it, but still *rolls eyes*
