    Very exciting and fast paced soccer !
    Currently watching England - France.

    Game is tied 1:1 after 1, and both teams are still fast at it.
    Chances are left and right on both sides.

    This game can go either way !

    Who else is following Euro 2012 ?
    And of course I'm cheering for Germany :)

    But, I work evenings and don't get home until after midnight usually, and currently 7 days a week, because 1 of my co-workers got rear ended in a car accident and is off for atleast 2 weeks.
    Today is my day off normally, so was yesterday.
    But, atleast I get a small break today and only need to go in for 4 hrs today, instead of 8.

    You told us before that you work 7:00 AM to 1:00 AM..........7 days a week !!
    Post #15 "UPS Union Issus Forum under a thread titled....."Can't carry cell phone on you person".

    So how is anyone suppose to tell if you're BS'ing or being truthful.

    If I can't tell, then I assume everything outof your mouth is a lie!!!

    My wife is right into it.I enjoy watching it too but I'm not a fanatic.
    It's a bit crazy in Toronto with all the minorities,flags on cars,people honking like crazy when their team wins.
    I think it's cool that everyone can get involved and show such emotion.
    My wife is of Swedish decent,and she was not too happy tonight.
    She's PVR'ing everything so she won't miss any.
    Germany put up a good fight against Portugal,nothing wrong with playing to a tie.
    My wife is predicting either Germany or Spain to win the cup.

    I do have more than just one f/t job. I still do grocery and liqour deliveries on the side, too.
    Now, even looking for the odd 1 or 2 day hotdog job, too.

    Germany is so good that the team should be broken up into two smaller teams, just so the other teams have a better chance.

    You mean like in Hockey ?
    DS was right, LA has 8 Canadians , Ney Jersey only 2.
    So it was obvious that LA would win it !

    “Rooney’s metatarsal was broken because his studs engaged in the turf at Stamford Bridge and it didn’t release quickly enough so these injuries are a direct cause of the studs sticking when they should be releasing.”
