OT - Euro Quarterfinals - Portugal vs. Czech Republic

Submitted by bacon1431 on June 21st, 2012 at 2:58 PM

We're onto the knockout stage, which opens with the Czechs matching up with Portugal.

Will be curious to see if Ronaldo has found his international mojo or if it was just the result of a defeated Netherlands squad. Czechs steadily made their way through their group to advance.

Yellow to Nani was deserved....if for nothing more than his stupidity in actually trying to make a play right there.

Next yellow...not so sure

When you think about it, Germany vs. Greece is an intriguing matchup politically.  "Psst.  Hey, you there.  Greece.  Nice bailout package you're getting.  Would be a shame to lose it.  I'd hate to see anything happen to it myself, but just to make sure, you might wanna think about laying it down in the second half.  You know how the boss hates to lose, and I don't think you wanna see him angry, myself."

This could theoretically happen in all three rounds, actually.

Italy v. England is a big fat coinflip.

Which England team shows up?  How crazy does Balotelli feel?  Somewhat crazy? Stomp-on-ankle crazy? Eat Wayne Rooney crazy?

I took a shot like Kadlec about 8 months ago and separated the bone from the cartilage on my 10th rib.  I am just now able to play without discomfort.

 

Hope he's okay.
