    Euro 2008

    Since it starts today, I thought I would put up a thread on Euro 2008. I'm looking forward to watching games played in Austria for the first time since I left in the mid '90s. The conventional wisdom says that Italy and Portugal are the teams to beat. Does anyone think there might be another Greece out there to pull off the upset?

    While I'd like to see the co-hosts Austria do well, it sounds like the Austrians, in their typical self-deprecating manner, have a dim view of their chances.

    They should put a freeze on the transfer window during Euro.

    Awful penalty call against Austria in the 4th minute against Croatia. I can't believe the ref made that call on this stage.

    Austria goes down to Croatia, 0-1, with the early penalty being the difference maker. I thought Austria made a good showing against Croatia and played with a lot of heart, but just couldn't get one to go in.

    Germany up 1-0 on Poland. Klose to Podolski. I just love watching the smooth transitions in this game. I'm getting excited about watching the top teams play.

    Anyone going to watch US v. Argentina? I'd like to, but my family might be back from their wedding trip, so I might not get to.

    Where's WilyMoRocks, by the way? Busy studying for the Bar Exam maybe?

    Gotcha. That's too bad. Well, we'll have to soldier on in the soccer threads without him.

    All in all a solid effort by the US today. They continue to show though their complete lack of anything closely resembling a finisher up front. Altidore cannot progress fast enough, hopefully this transfer to Spain will help him. I am also very impressed with the progress Bradley is making since last summer.
    Never let facts get in the way of a good rant.

    Agreed about the Americans' lack of a finisher, but all-in-all a solid effort, very impressed with Tim Howard's performance tonight, he had CONSTANT heat upon him.

    I'm not a big soccer fan, but I'd love to have someone explain Euro 2008's opening ceremony.

    I liked Adu's contributions off the bench. I think the US has a bright future with Adu and Altidore.

    That's quite a group. France, Italy, Holland and Romania.

    When the group was drawn, the Romanian coach had a good line: "We're with the World Cup champion, the runner up and Holland. It's an easy group."

    I suspect that they might beat France.
