At 4 o'clock this afternoon , local time , Holland plays Brazil in the quarter-finals . ( World Cup , of course ) .
Nothing less than a victory will do .
The offices are emptying , the market's packing up early , orange ice lollies and Paprika Doritos are being stockpiled , the oddest people are wandering around in orange curly wigs ....
And , down by the river , the imposing statue of a Frisian cow , known as Us Mem or Our Mum by everyone , is willing the team on .
Whatever sporting event you're supporting this weekend , Wimbledon , the Tour de France , football or horse-racing in Kentucky ..... GOOD LUCK !
I hope you've remembered your vuvuzela .
