Euro 2016 Recap
The Champions Portugal finally won it – with and without Ronaldo. Not known as a team player, it was impressive to see the man with his own statue (and museum, hotels and airport) support his fellow teammates after injury. Quite a strike from Eder. https://youtu.be/1BehJathYps The Contenders France were fantastic hosts and it would’ve been […]
Vive la France!
France opened the scoring at Euro 2016 with a goal from Mr. Pretty himself, Olivier Giroud. Romania’s Bogdan Stancu tied the match, but a beauty from Dimitri Payet finished the game at 2-1 in France’s favor.

The goal of this directory is to answer the ever important question: “Who is THAT?!” It’s funny to think these men can be mobbed on the streets in their own countries, yet most American sports fans ￼have no idea who they are.
If soccer were a film, these gentlemen (and a few ladies) would play the leading actors. Suggestions welcome.

Much has been made about trying to get the US engaged in world football, yet no one seems to be stating the obvious when it comes to women: it’s very easy for us to watch beautiful men run around for 45 minute intervals without commercial interruption.
However, we cannot be expected to have a die hard passion for a game which, until very recently, has been associated with small children and track suit wearing moms carting their kids around in mini-vans.
As we learn more about the players, we come to appreciate the game more. At some point, we go from “Wow, he’s hot!” to “Why would he use a 4-4-2 against that side?” I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much I love this game.
So this is a fun introduction to the wonderful world of soccer (aka football, fußball, fútbol, fotbal, voetbal, il calcio).
ps: Clever banter is welcome. Trolling is not. Remember, everyone is somebody’s child…and women don’t like people talking smack about their kids.
