So I guess there's this tiny, little match coming up later today. I don't know, I guess it's something important. Maybe you've heard of it. The UEFA Euro 2012 Final between Spain and Italy? Yeah me either... Obviously, by now you can tell I'm just being facetious. In any case, after the Portland Timbers incredible flame out against Colorado last night I figured we could all use a nice distraction. Luckily, the Euro 2012 is here to save the day!
Also, you might have noticed that we didn't have a discussion thread for the semi finals. That was my fault. Sorry about that. It was a crazy busy week and the entire thing just got completely lost to me. I was EXTREMELY bummed to find out Germany lost to Italy... of all teams. Ugh.
Also, I've included after the jump a video made by our own SB Nation studios' that sort of wraps up the competition with a bit of a preview for today's game.
So, with that said, who are you rooting for? What are your match predictions?
I've got a 1-nil mega blow out by Spain. I know, it's a real high scoring game. But that's what happens when Spain and Italy play.
