Here we go, my first post related to what will ruin our tv-programm for the next weeks ;-) As if the eurovision wasn't enough *rolls eyes*. No new Doctor Who episode two weeks ago because of it. Wich BBC channel broadcasts sports? I hope not BBC1?
Anyway, sunday evening we are (attention: sarcasm) blessed with our first combatant being Poland. Not only is there still bad blood between the nations itself (hell between Poland and the EU in general in recent history), Poland is also one of the big hooligan nations. I.e. not the nation itself certainly. But like England they have many football hooligans. So I bet they will be lots of securtity measures tomorrow (like they did two years ago during the world cup game Germany vs Poland).Plus we already had to see this stupidity (Poland's yellow press turns blood red)
that only makes you want to hit your head against the wall. That was so superfluous. This is sports not politics dear journalists.
Spiegel-Online has several English language articles about the Euro 2008 Football Championship => click
Oh, and they have an new feature (haven't read the online Spiegel editions for a while) Europes's weird ways
about all the strange local traditions like the annual phallus festival in a Greek town XD
So, if you follow statistics we should beat Poland sunday evening. But they are not bad players, so it won't be like stealing candy from a baby :-) (And to quote Robert Asprin, who ever made up that saying has certainly never tried it ;-))
