Just a simple shout-out here to my fellow Dutch peeps, the Netherlands' Olympic field hockey team. This group has already been singled out by Yahoo as the "Most Attractive Olympic Team" competing in London. Just more confirmation of what many of us have known for years, that we Dutch - in addition to being bright, industrious, friendly and capable of dancing in wooden shoes - are just an extraordinarily attractive people.
More importantly, these ladies can play. They won the gold medal four years ago at Beijing (defeating the Chinese on their home turf in the finals), and opened this year's campaign by beating Belgium today 3-0. Japan is the next opponent, on Tuesday, but in the meantime, just enjoy the beauty that is Dutchness. Team photo here, more pix can be found by clicking here:
