I haven't mentioned much about the football (or soccer) tournament going on in Europe right now, but it has been televised in the States and I have watched some of it. I am pulling for Spain, for no reason that I can think of. Taz, my friend in Zimbabwe, says that Germany is the team to beat. I think Netherlands has a shot, too. They have played some fine football in the tournament.
If you are interested in who's still playing as they prepare for the championship on June 29, you can go the official site and check it out. I have to watch soccer now that basketball is finished (yea Celtics!) and we have no baseball in Pittsburgh. We have a team, but they don't play baseball. They only go through the motions and haven't had a winning season since 1992. So I am reduced to cheering, "Go Spain! Go Netherlands!" What a sad state of affairs.
