Oh boy, oh boy! The Euro draw!
Well, I was at work for it, but I heard it was an experience that most people will never forget. Or understand. It went down like this:
Republic of Ireland
Now, it’s no secret that I much prefer the Euro to the World Cup, so of course, I’m already excited for June. Despite the fact the Switzerland isn’t in it and I will have to go like this:
(Really, I just like Puma shirts)
Or, I am quite happy to support Russia too. And they always have bad-ass kits.
Anyway, my group prediction is as follows:
Now, you might be shocked to see Russia up there, but I have a feeling about this team, I think they might be the dark horse this year. Also, you’ll notice that I don’t have either of the host countries going through. I feel bad about that, but I am still bitter about Euro 2008.
Obviously, Groups B and C will be the most entertaining to watch (and we'll all politely fake an interest in Groups A and D). If my prediction goes as planned, the right side of the bracket will be more interesting to watch, as Spain destroying the left will come quickly and mercilessly. England - Italy would be a fun embarrassment (for the English, of course) and I look forward to the bragging rights once we wop the Germans (terrible pun, actually not intentional). As for Spain, well, it's not going to happen (this is picking Arsenal over Barca all over again...)
Speaking of which, I think we should start a pool. Anyone want in?
