I hate the Euro

No, not the currency. The stupid soccer* tournament. Well, I do hate the euro currency too, but that’s another story…

It starts today in less than 2 hours. (There’s actually a countdown on the official site.) David’s going to be glued to the TV and I’m going to be bored. France doesn’t play until Monday though. Fortunately I have a private lesson at the same time so I won’t be home!

I’m still dreading my train from Geneva to Freiburg in a few weeks. I have a stop in Basel. Geneva and Basel are both host cities for it.

I wish it were June 29th already…

* I refuse to say football even though I’m in Europe because that always reminds me of American football, which I hate even more.

    My schedule today includes watching BOTH games because I am trapped at his mom’s house without a car or buses or anything! I brought all my French books to study, but I don’t want to be the weird girl who studies in the cafe during a game. So it’s either that or cartoons with the little sis at home. Sigh.

    My husband is into soccer too. I spent the evening watching an old movie in the bedroom while he watched soccer in the living room. I think it will be that way until the end. I used to love to watch my children play soccer but just can’t get into professional soccer. I do love American Football though, espcially college.

    Hate is such an ugly world.
    Football gives a lot of pleasure to a lot of people.
    In my youth I had a great time playing it and like most males, now that I am getting a bit past it ,I without a hint of envy enjoy reliving the pleasure by watching people playing it at a level I could only dream of.
    As England can’t be there -veel succes Oranje.
