Croatia to win Euro 2016
If they can just manage to over come the goofy extra curricular activity in the stands when they [play] we could see something special happen here in the Euro 2016.
I have great respect for teams that come from areas who've been fighting ever since time began.(ie. the Balkans) When you've been in war and constant political animosity since the 1500's like the region where Croatia spring from you just know that whomever they send will be packing the correct attitude it takes to with this "heathen skill testing challenge of a sport." Ever since Croatia beat Italy in the last World Cup I've been planning for spots to play on this exciting team. Croatia is one of the few teams who get on to the pitch and carefully remove the reverse feature in their car. Speedy, and talented sneakiness make this Croatian team a likely suspect to surprise at the final wire imho.
I still wonder what the pot at the end of that yellow brick road looks like?
With all of the so-called "terror" threats to the West from whatever group that can't get its way using the normal channels for political change. Enter the French who've already had numerous attacks on their soil, hosting an international event - the Euro 2016 - cannot even manage prevent the stadium from being breached by incendiary devices and/or explosive devices?!?
Thank you France... We in the West everywhere can now look forward to paying for MORE heightened security at every imaginable event everywhere. And locally the ropes around our necks grow as our local constabulary police state gets its free pass to drink a full case of power drinks before tonight's shift.
Good luck getting into any event on time from now on with these idiots and/or 'plants' committing these kinds of dangerous interruptions to normal civil procedures to maintain the required level of fear amongst the public just in case we think we can't afford those expensive contracts held tightly by the boys and 'girls' who walk that thin blue line...
The footage of Ben Gummi calling the 1st ever Icelandic goal on the world soccer stage at the Euro 2016.
You don't need to know a lick of Icelandic to appreciate this. Just phenomenal enthusiasm.
AND NOW WE SMITE THEM INTO TINY PIECES OF DUST & DESTROY THEIR GOAL WITH A BALL SET ON FIRE BY OUR VOLCANIC THUNDER
The lower ranked teams seem to be haunting the teams expected to do well. Expect the unexpected when the beautiful game begins.
Pressure, pressure, pressure...
Ukraine takes this one...
Haven't we seen enough examples of age catching up to our sports heroes?
Over in Cleveland we patiently watched as Lebron James coached his Cavalier crew to roll 8 games straight through their opponent's because he gets it. Long series create tired bodies and injuries. Cleveland are likely doing grape knee-highs n' spicy tacos in that sunspot Cancun, Barkley and that TNT 'Yooo whooo crew keep festooning aboot.
But back on track...
Witness the last few NBA games. An old Miami squad, injured ,tiring losing late to a nervous Craptors squad. Then Donovan and OKC discovering a hole in Pop's wall and winning two straight by pushing their old-timer-centric opponents over their current physical limits.. OKC coach, Donovan must of spotted that 'stink' on them Spurs having noticed it way back when, while coaching Florida as some college players would hit a wall as the post season progressed.
Tonight the Thunder pound that cut in Pop's game like a boxer, surgically dismantling this nostalgia collection and moving on to face the resting Warriors. There is no cut man on the San Antonio squad to stop the momentum Oklahoma will push it tonight. Just watch how tired the Spurs look by the 3rd quarter. Ginobili, Parker , Duncan?!..,if you run the tapes they looked spent after those drives of old and their defensive chase. Sorry but, Aldridge has regained that Portland 'stare.' Yeah the deer in the headlights. Oooops-a-daisy no show of consistent points from that poor guy all of a sudden. Some guys just choke when there is a spot light? So unless I'm mistaken, its Durant and Westbrook vs. Aldridge and Leonard
And OKC for me.
