Euros: Day 7 – Lack of the Irish

I was able to pull myself out of my depression of looking at the SportAZine.com stats only to be pushed further into depression by Spain only to be uplifted by the Irish fans, who reminded us all that it’s just a game. We went into the day with Croatia on top with 3 points, Italy and Spain knotted at 1 point, and Ireland with...

Euros: Day 6 – Favorites Collide

Denmark v. Portugal (2-3) Game of the tournament, perhaps. It certainly was if you like goals (being a goalkeeper, I’m not big on goals). Portugal was up 2-0, but saw that lead slip to 2-2. I have no Danish or Portuguese players in my team. According to FIFA 2012, Christian Eriksen is going to be one of the best players in the world. They’ve...

Euros: Day 5 – Let’s Do It All Over Again!

Have you ever wondered how the US would fair in Group A? ESPN did. I can’t say I’m convinced Stuart Holden is the answer, and I’m also not as pessimistic about the US. I was at the US/Brazil game and the US created plenty of chances. I’m not going to rehash my thoughts. Czech v. Greece (2-1) The Czechs are ranked 27th in the...

Euros: Day 4 – SVERIGE !!

Here’s a first: Getting my article out the same day as the games! I could spend more time on this article, but since the articles for the other three days have been rather short, I figured I would keep this one consistent and start working on the article for tomorrow. Things will really start to get interesting tomorrow with the Czechs facing elimination! Sadly,...

Euros: Day 3 – Time to Breathe

I am currently first in my fantasy group! I have four more players starting today. I’ll talk about them on the Day 4 article. I’ve got to say though, I’m more interested in the games today (Day 4) than the games yesterday (Day 3). There’s time enough for that tomorrow, I guess – expect a more expansive article. I am not sure if I...

Euros: Day 2 – Can There Be a Shocker in the Group of Death?

Group B has been dubbed the “Group of Death”. All four teams are ranked in the FIFA top ten. The Netherlands v. Denmark The Netherlands are #4 and Denmark is #9. Is Denmark winning 1-0 a shocker? No. It *is* unexpected, but anybody that is shocked did not know about the Dutch week back line. Don’t get me wrong, I have van der Weil...

Euros: Day 1 – Sports Overload

There was a lot going on yesterday. French Open MLB Group A: Poland v. Greece Group A: Russia v. Czech World Cup Qualifiers Luckily for me and my ability to cover things, the NHL and the NBA took the day off. French Open I’m not big on tennis, but Wendy is, so it was on yesterday. Men’s semi-finals to be exact. Nadal vs. Djokavic...
