I follow the football when the US in involved, so I'm not into the Euro thing.
Yes, I'm a huge baseball/rounder fan, except my Phillies are sucking so badly this year that I invite them over to clean my rugs. It's really not their fault, their top 2 positional players haven't even played yet (injuries), their top 3 starting pitchers have been or are still out for injuries, plus another 7 guys who have been out for injuries for various amounts of time.
Imagine if I came around Cambridge and smacked 4-5 of your players every other week with a cricket bat with various degrees of injury. That's my team so far this year, minus the assault and cricket bat. I don't think we've had the same roster lineup (excepting the starting pitcher) for more than 2 games straight for the entire year, and we're 53 games in! They're about as effective as if we both drank 2 bottles of absinthe, drove a car into a tree with no seatbelts, lit ourselves on fire, and then tried to take out the Yakuza with Nerf guns.
