to play football, not to play trumpet
Quick question before the games today: Who you got in the group of death? Denmark, Germany, Netherlands or Portugal . . . It would be hard to bet against the Germans, but the Dutch showed a lot of class in the World Cup two years ago!
Experimenting with some different tan and blacks here myself. Hope you all are having a pleasant evening like I am. What's in your glass/bottle?
Similar to their March Madness competition, ESPN also has a bracket predictor contest for the European Championships that begin today. I've created an MGoBlog group, and if anyone is interested please join! I know this is kind of a late notice, but I just discovered the bracket predictor today. Good luck to all!

USA went up a spot since last month to #28...I guess some progress is better than no progress, even if it's minimal. But, since the Euro is coming up in a few days, who do you guys have winning it? Any matchups you are looking forward to? This is a pretty slow day, so I figured some of the soccer fans out there would like to share what country they are going for.
For once I won't have to sit at the edge of my seat and pull my hair during a soccer game, since US won't be playing. But I can kick back, relax and watch some good European soccer.
Is this a big deal or not? Some apparently are reacting like it is; the key participant doesn't seem to think so. Girls' state champinship track meet, one girl helps another to the finish line (both were out of contention at that point -- but the helper had just won the state 1600 championhip a couple hours earlier). As a dad of three budding athletes, I actually found this touching. I think this is how I'd want my kids to respond. I think. Or, is the point, they were both going to be the two last-place runners, so its No Big Deal?
I guess I can also point out, it IS that state down south, apparently they arent ALL raised by Tressel and Pryor.
