I think my luck is beginning to turn...

Believe it or not, I was actually rooting for the T***s over the Nazi's, I mean C*****a.  Everyone MUST know I was big time for the Ruski's over the Dutch and they won (or was I just dreaming).

Tomorrow I have SPAIN, SPAIN, SPAIN to be Fruil's Italians!!!  (Not a huge Spain fan - but the remain staunchly opposed to Kosovo independence - so that is enough reason for me).

Well, my favorites from the beginning were Greece, Poland and Germany. As of now, Germany still remains.

I sure hope not.  If you past bad luck continues, Italy will be into the finals since you will be cheering for Spain and then Russia.   :laugh:

Apparently so. It was a fantastic game, with some tremendous saves on both sides. There's a reason both teams chose the goalkeeper as captain. Fantastic playing; it's the way I love to see a team exit the tournament. One team's got to go, but it's so much more satisfying to see them play as well as Italy did this past weekend.

It will be interesting to see how Russia bounces back from their initial loss to Spain.  I get this feeling they'll be extra motivated by the margin of defeat the last time (4-1, giving up a hat trick).

It was such a frustrating game to watch.   :P  The uplink kept dying at crucial points.

Yet at the same time, the T*rks know how to make the dying minutes exciting.

Yeah, but I was glad to see the winning goal seconds before the feed died for the last time. It would have been awful to have been unable to see the demise of the T*rks.
