    Iceland going bonkers !



    Iceland will compete against France for the Gold on Sunday.

    And it will broadcast in Iceland at 7:45 local time ,in the morning.

    Movie theaters will show the game ,where movies are usually shown - and it will be free.

    Everybody will be awake that early.

    Today ,when the game was on ,when Iceland won Spain,everything stopped -

    While the game was on - there was no activity at the Icelandic Stock Exchange.


    After the game ,cars where driving with Icelandic flags around town.

    And tonight - as you can see on the video - there where still some with the flag ,and people where going downtown - to celebrate.





    But there was also a cruise liner leaving town - mabey it was a French Ship -- or Spanish !


    Iceland has won three medals - since the beginning of modern

    Olympics. -- 1 silver and 2 bronce.

    Triple jump in 1956, judo in 1984, pole vault in 2000.And since we are only about three hundred thousand that live

    here in Iceland - it will be nice to win France ( population 60 million )
