    Default Russia Wins--Molodyets!

    Big, you watching Euro 2008? Russia just beat The Netherlands 3-1 in extra time. Amazing game! I woke up at 4am local time to get a spot at the local sports bar/casino to watch the action. It was NUTS in there!

    Didn't see the game. Oil money goes a long way. What is next?

    Spain, who they lost to 4-1 earlier in the tourney. I'll be up to see 'em. They don't have much talent (relative to Spain), but they have a great coach and momentum. Might be interesting.
    By the way, did you see the aftermath of this last game in Moscow? Chaos, and at least one death that I know of.

    Russia lost the semi is what I am hearing.

    Yeah it was pretty ugly, 3-0. I watched every minute, and Russia didn't stand a chance. I guess talent > oil money in soccer!

    Still a heck of an improvement from when oil was dirt cheap.

    Question: Did Soviet Union ever win Euros or World Cup or Olympics in soccer?
