    My husband and I watched most of Portugal vs.Germany yesterday.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Germany doing well. The Dutch surprisingly lost against Denmark.

    Spain and Italy are playing now. 0-0 at half time.

    Even though Hockey is the main sport here, we love mostly all Sports. All we don't get on our Basic Cable is Cricket.

    Are you secretly rooting for Vlad's army Luba?

    Today crunch game for the Dutch. They need to beat the Germans to stand a good chance of progressing to the knock out stages. A loss and it should be over.

    Re: 2012 UEFA Championship

    Russia, Poland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Ireland and Croatia eliminated already.

    Very poor showing by the Dutch in particular.

    Tomorrow France - Sweden and England - Ukraine. France and England will only need a draw to qualify for the next round.

    I was sad that the Dutch didn't make it. Though I didn't see the last match, I was hoping for them.

    England beat Ukraine and go through.

    And despite losing to Sweden, France go through as well.

    So QFs:
    Germany - Greece
    Portugal - Czech Republic
    England - Italy
    Spain - France

    Spain through to the finals after a penalty shootout.

    Germany - Italy in 9 hours from now. Should be a cracker.

    Re: 2012 UEFA Championship

    honestly, what's the point of these games? I mean... yeah, sports, but really... what is it? To me, personally, it's nothing more than a great reason to be wearing sneakers when going to a bar and having a glass of beer... I can go by, undercover, on the male land...

    yes, I am absolutely ignorant when it comes to sport!

    but I think I like hockey a lot more than football... and basketball a lot more than hockey - never been to a match, though...

    sorry, vent over. Just sayin'... UEFA, Champions' League... whatever, good games, more reasons for me to hit the sports bar and have great atmosphere !

    You can use it as a sort of litmus test:
    1. Does the guy have anything intelligent to say about sports?
    2. Does he have a life beyond work and sports?
    3. Can he actually talk about a non-work, non-sports-related topic?

    See, it is not all that bad for women.
