Anyone watching the European Cup ?
I cheer for Greece, because of my in- laws. They won it last time around but were handily eliminated this time, barely able to score a goal in the entire tournament - ouch!
Soccer, or 'Football" as the Europeans call it is far from my favorite game, but I do get into the big tournaments and occassionally enter pools during the World Cup.
I think the Netherlands has a good chance of taking it all in this tournament. They just seem to romp over everyone..but Portugal looks good too, as does Spain.
Today at 2:30pm. (my time) Germany plays Portugal in Quarter-final action.

I'm for the Turks and against the Italians. Other than that, who gives a toss.

Who gives a fuck I mean really? Football is lame even when England are playing, screw supporting Johnny Foreigner.

I thought all Europeans loved soccer..
Portugal lost today..I am a little surprised at that,
Shawarma - did you know the Turks have set a record for most fouls in the tournament? Both individual and team fouls...they are nasty tempered. And they are major underdogs; I am cheering for them too.
They play tommorrow afternoon against Croatia.

Spain is a slight favorite to win the final today..
I wouldn't write Germany off though, as they have a knack for coming up big when they need to.
Should be a decent game.

Soccer, or 'Football" as the Europeans call it ...

Actually, yanks and Canadians are basically the only people in the world who call American Football 'football'. Everybody else is talking about Soccer when they say 'football'.

Australian football isn't a sport, it's a tribal ritual.

Germany looked very ordinary..they hardly ever had possession of the ball.
I was expecting a better game than that, Spain missed out on a lot of good chances too..if Germany could have just put one in and forced extra time..?
But Spain ends a looong drought with this victory, so good for them.
I just wish I had seen a better soccer game.

Oh, and from what I have seen of Austrailian football it looks like a very chaotic sort of rugby. It would be fun to play for sure..

Australian Rules is a cross between Gaelic football and rugby.
