And so the Great TOC/BYB Off-Topic Experiment of 2010 comes to an end.  It's Spain and the Netherlands in the final.  Pregame coverage starts at 1:30 on ABC.  Kick-off is 2:30.  Good technical previews of the two teams are here and here.

Personally, I'm pulling for Spain.  Their deft possession of the ball would make them deserving entrants in the pantheon of all-time champions.  And the Dutch dove just a bit too much for my taste in taking out my adopted Brazil side.
