one of the best sports days in recent memory -- Euro is popping, the Belmont, NBA Game 7, and the Kings should ragdoll the Devils and heist your boy Stan's cup today.

Belmont lost a bit of luster with I'll Have Another being scratched, but other than that, no real arguments here.


Netherlands 2 - 0 Denmark
Germany 2 - 1 Portugal

Not making any predictions because I don't know enough about these teams to make fair picks. Also, I'm at work and unable to watch (damn IT guys not unblocking the streams).

I'm going for a Cloggie win here (assuming they don't walk off).

Het Nederlands Elftal!

I have the Dutch playing the Germans in the final so I expect both to win today. Regardless it's going to be a great day! Here in DC it is SAVOR which is the premier craft beer event in the country. In honor (and because tickets sold out in 1 minute) bars around the city have been having events. One of my favorite bars down the street is having a local only tap takeover. Over 25 special beers and 10 casks split between two levels from 6-10 local breweries.

Drinking great beer and watching Euro. Glorious saturday!

I'm reading the BBC commentary and they posted this a while back:

As a player, this is what you want to hear from your coach before you embark on playing at a major championship.

"We have problems related to both the central defenders and full-backs," said Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin. "Figuratively speaking, our defenders do not even tackle properly."

Can someone put a fiver on Ukraine's opponents for me? Thanks.

Also from the BBC:

Just spotted the latest Joey Barton tweets. Ready?

"Why are people giving me loads [of abuse] about England saying 'cant get in squad etc'," tweeted the QPR midfielder.

"On ability I walk into the squad, on behaviour I don't... #fact.

"If [Jordan] Henderson got in, any Englishman not currently in the squad has to feel aggrieved. Yes, I wish I was there but I'm not..."

Can't argue with the coont there.
 
2012-06-09 12:02:33 PM  
Hup Hup!
 
2012-06-09 12:02:48 PM  
It breaks my heart that I have to work on Euro Saturdays. But if Germany makes it to the final I will fight tooth and nail to get that day off.
 
2012-06-09 12:03:10 PM  
Damn it do i watch the 2nd half of England vs South Africa at rugby or the Nederlands vs Denmark?

If you can get ESPN3.com, you can watch the netherlands game later on replay.
Of course, you'll have to shun the thread and all other soccer related activities til then but hey, no spoilers:)

Terry and Rooney get in despite their behaviour. Barton's crap. That's it.

Wondering if Dutch men at football matches are dressed like they vacation in Spain, with their fat guts hanging over their black Speedos.
 
2012-06-09 12:11:14 PM  
I watched 5 matches yesterday. So begins another glorious day of soccer.
 
2012-06-09 12:11:54 PM  
the match is faster than i expected so far

But Happy Birthday in advance! (I'll forget.)

Ah bummer. I have to work through most of the games, yesterday I streamed them in the background and tried to mute my celebrations. I noted it was my bday because I'll be drunk and screaming at the TV while I watch haha, but thanks.

I'm taking a 2 hour lunch on Monday to watch England/France at the pub in front of my building with some work people. I love this time of year!

TSN2 for some reason.

My impressions as someone rooting for Netherlands:

Defense: eep. get nervous every time they touch the ball in their own third.

Midfield: surprisingly cautious so far.

Final third play: holy crap.As soon as they get in the attacking zone it's like a whole different team. They're just playing for fun out there, and have total confidence.

Denmark is outmatched, but it just takes one bad defensive play...

I'll catch the 1st half on Match of the Day later. I expect the first half will be dull anyways.
 
2012-06-09 12:24:17 PM  
Damn the dutch are good on offense. How they haven't scored, I have no idea, but this game is quite lively.
 
2012-06-09 12:25:07 PM  
YESSSS!!!
 
2012-06-09 12:25:17 PM  
Holy shiat, how did that happen? Damn, game on!
 
2012-06-09 12:25:33 PM  
Yes!

Nice wide stance, goaltender!
 
2012-06-09 12:26:11 PM  
Wow...totally against the run of play.
 
2012-06-09 12:26:39 PM  
Really lucky defelection, but terrible D and great finish!
 
2012-06-09 12:27:26 PM  
The Dutch have a 3-1 procession advantage and they're down 1-0. Crazy.
 
2012-06-09 12:27:49 PM  
First blood goes to Denmark!
 
2012-06-09 12:28:39 PM  
Tim krul would've saved that
