Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Quick post this morning - in a weekend that did not go according to form at Euro 2008, with the underdogs all winning, Spain bucked the trend by beating Italy 1-0 in penalties. The Italians brought their normal game - defend, defend, defend and hope we sneak a goal - and by the second half of extra time, had all but packed it in in hopes of getting to penalties.

Iker Casillas broke the hearts of the Italians with TWO penalty kick saves.

Spain carries the hopes of the Iberians, and everyone else who loves the beautiful game - they play it the right way. As for the Italians, take that crap you call "tactical play" back to the boot and console yourselves with delusions of grandeur about how well you play the game - you show up at every tournament with the same crap and bore everyone to death.

For those of you who say soccer is boring - with the exception of yesterday's game - the quarter-final games were all pretty exciting. A hell of a lot more exciting than GOLF.

That's it for this morning - back later with more.

Another installment of - Why we believe Brian Burke will eventually wind up in Toronto.

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.

I'm Out!
