Wait,

Aren't the olympics this year... so what about Olympic soccer?

Do they coincide?

FIFA is smart about protecting the value and prestige of its leagues and tournaments. The result is that Olympic soccer is played by under 23 year olds who have never played in a world cup game for their country

Did not know that.

Senderoos...He is just a terrible player. Bad with Arsenal and bad with the national team.

How can you say that's the "Real" Super Bowl when the NFL has a trademark on that name?

I bet more people watch this Euro thing than the SB...but I don't want the NFL suing me...

Probably, but are you the type to do something just because a bunch of others are doing it?

I encourage you to watch what you want to watch and ignore what everyone else is doing.

I'm guessing he WANTS to watch it considering he started a thread about it..

Netherlands ftw

I am laughing my ass at the caution they put out to the Netherlanders cautioning them against wearing the orange wig since it is highly flammable. Mental picture of said wig on fire with the owner running around screaming help ensued.

Maybe Spain won't break my heart again as they apparently love to do at every major competition. They look solid again, but we'll see what they do on Tuesday against Russia.

What the hell ESPN? Your channel goes offline for a good 3-4 minutes and as soon as you come back Germany scores another goal and we just miss all the replays. GG broadcasting overseas. Bastards.

I started punching the couch when it came back on. I was NOT happy.

I was watching ESPN2 HD and saw the 2nd goal fine.

Crap. Both home teams lost :(

Anyway, as far as Germany goes: JETZT GEHTS LOS!!!

Some Austrian fans wanted them to pull out to avoid embarrasment. Sad, but they are going to get pounded on.

you would be mistaken in that assumption.

this statement is filled with hilariously sheltered bias.
