Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Congratulations, my Spanish friends!

It was storming all afternoon yesterday so I ended up at home watching the game.  A few items of note:

It was aired live on one of the national American TV networks.  wow.
That opening ceremony thing confirmed my theory that one of the defining characteristics of Europe is unnecessary silliness.
A rude Nascar fan relative called me.  I told them to switch on the soccer game.  Their exact words were, "Them people don't look right."  Oh god help us all....
