It is a serious disease that the Earth is suffering from during Football Championships. I know it is bad, that the Earthlings are ignoring Rugby, Volleyball, Golf, Cricket and other nice sports. Football is a very easy game. And it changed especially since 2000 when the players became more Top Models then players and Football an Industry and not a game. Yes I know it…
Still, when there is Euro or Champions League or Mondial… I get crazy. I buy the stickers of players, read books about football (now “Fever Pitch” – I vividly recommend, not only for football fans), play Fifa all the time, buy T-Shirts of different countries, flags, balls, mini balls etc.
I already mentioned that I am a Death Angel of all teams that I am supporting. Even if I am supporting 10 out of 12 teams, there are big chances that one of the rest two will win. So I never tell who I am supporting, although the Universe knows it anyway.
But this year I am the happiest person so I can tell you that my number 1 is of course Poland, number 2 is the country where I live Switzerland and then… I like teams that are theoretically weaker but interesting e.g. Belgium or Croatia. I have big fondness for France, although I loved the team from 1998 with Zidane, Petit, Blanc or Barthez. I like our big rivals Germany with Muller or Hummels. And I would love some super surprising and less rich team to go further e.g. Iceland or Romania. So in general, I will be happy with most of results, but would be the happiest if Poland and Switzerland made it to semi finals 🙂
Now counting hours till the big opening in Paris. Let this Euro be full of Fair Play, Team Spirit, Peace and Saying “No” to Racism. And of course full of amazing goals and emotions 🙂
I put only 3 attributes related to football, as I don’t want my hubby to shout at me that I am buying useless stuff 😉 Although he is the sweetest and doesn’t shout and brings me nice things 🙂
