Thank you! Jun 15, 2008

Just back home from the city as a contributor to our local noise pollution

It was a good game really. I've already forgiven our guys for their lousy performance against Portugal. Way to go!

On the borders of death! Jun 15, 2008

I still can't believe how we did it. I'm sure nobody can. C(z)ech(s) wear helmets but we believe and play! Go Turkey! Go!

No wonder he is called the Emperor! Jun 16, 2008

I simply cannot find the words myself to describe how they did it. Therefore, I would just like to add two quotations that might fit the situation.

"A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do."
Walter Bagehot (1826 – 1877)

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcomings, who knows the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the high achievement of triumph and who at worst, if he fails while daring greatly, knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)

We are happy to beat a strong team Jun 17, 2008

I believe the Czechs were very good (especially their goalkeeper) and this is why I consider this game well-won. If our rival was not so strong, I don't think we would be half talking so excited. Go ahead Turkey, get the cup!
