Update to my "brush with greatness" post

After living at the hotel the past few weeks I've befriended a few members of the hotel staff. Coincidentally one of them has an American boyfriend who lives in Reston, VA where we own our house. I asked her about my encounter the night before and she said "Yes, the Dutch team stays here. We don't even think about it anymore because we're so used to it. Last night the gates were up in case there were angry fans."

Luckily there were no angry fans last night. Just supporters. I did however figure out who I saw by the elevator banks. His name is Giovanni van Bronckhorst , in the center of the front row in this photo. He scored the 3rd goal in the Netherlands - Italy match, which the Dutch won 3-0.
