In case you haven't noticed, a great soccer tournament is going on in Europe. The Euro is essentially the World Cup, but with only European teams. So, all the great teams, minus Argentina and Brazil. I've been obsessed with it, as you might have guessed, but you're typical sports fan should get a kick out of much of it. Case in point, today the Czechs play the Turkish, winner advances, loser goes home. That is only fun. With national pride on the line, it's fantastic.
The next four days are the end of the group stages, which is exactly like the World Cup, and Thursday the quarterfinals start. There will be great games, and the final on the 29th should be awesome. If you like the World Cup, at least give this tourney a shot. It's all the nationalism that the Olympics used to give us, now in convenient soccer form.
