Euro 2016

21 Jun

I love watching the big soccer tournaments – the World Cup, Euro Cup. It is a shame that the Copa America cup is not as prominent on the airwaves on this continent as the Euro2016 is.
I love the game – it is fascinating. The tactics, the strategy, the athleticism, the fans.
Yes, some bad apples do come in to cause trouble, but these #@*%##@ can be taken care of. The days of massive riots are behind us and there are only a few #@*%##@ from #@*%##@ nations that come and try to destroy the harmony that really does exist. I have seen countless of celebrations where fans from opposing nations celebrate together – one a loss and one a victory.
It is just a game. Yes, national pride is on the line – but it is only football (soccer) pride.
