Armchair bliss

The armchair has been dusted and aired.

The fridge is full of Tuborg.

The remote control has been placed in its biennial secret location.

Starting this evening is Euro 2004, for the next 23 days the bane of many a wife all over Europe...All games are live over here on Channel 1, so we'll have to put up with some hopeless commentating. A little channel-surfing might be performed (when mrs. anglosaxy isn't looking...), in the hope of finding some commentating in English.

And who's going to win? My heart says England, but my head says Italy or France. Surprise team of the tournament? I'll go for Greece.

Here's a good explanation as to why Israel football is so crap and why we never see them in a major tournament...
