    Euro 2004

    Euro 2004 is starting soon in Portugal so we will be watching wall to wall footie for about a month. Of course N.Ireland aren't there. Until recently we hadn't scored a goal for over 2 years!! The shame .
    Reckon France have a good chance. They need to make up for the disappointment of the last world cup. Any footie fans think their team has a chance?

    Ahhhh footie, there's nothing like it.
    I can't wait.
    Coverage on Canadian tv leaves a lot to be desired, but it could be worse, I could be in the States where they're pretty clueless about how to cover the game.
    They could do with a few lessons from Des Lynam on how to host a show and Mottie on how to commentate.

    I'll be watching some matches, not all though....rooting for France! Zinadine Zidane, I've always admired his skills . England :rolleyes no support from me! Should be interesting though... except here the matches are at random hours like 3am in the morning. So yeah, probably only watching the important matchs, semi's, quarter-finals!

    They could also take lessons from whoever it is that covers matches on the Spanish channel. There's nothing like watching a match when the commentators get excited about the plays! Of course, I don't understand a word they are saying, but man... the emotion!

    ^^ Cali - I agree the art of commentary is a sport of itself, not many people realize it, but I bet it's quite hard to do.

    I realize I'm getting off topic of Euro, but I had to make a comment.

    My daughter plays right wing, her boyfriend is a goalie. He was over yesterday and I showed him this awesome goal I had taped. He wasn't too impressed and I couldn't figure out why. My daughter says "It's because he didn't really watch the goal, he was watching the goalie

    ummm... maybe that was one of those "Had to be there" moments....

    Please proceed with Euro talk

    Portugal vs. Greece

    Watching the match right now... BO-ring! Usually I'm more hyped up, but I'm not impressed

    Currently Greece 1, Portugal 0 as of 25 mins into the game (my money is on Portugal, and it aint looking good)

    My take - the opening ceremony - was okay. THe boat in the middle of the field though, was odd the guys in the orange, skin tight jumpsuits, felt sorry for them to be running around the field like that.

    Portugals' coach, was Korea's (world cup) coach, he didn't impresse me, :rolleyes

    Back to the match ...
