The Democrats and even some Republicans seem to have found theirs.

The Irish seem to have  found theirs too.

Ireland are into the last 16 in the European Championships after a 1-0 win over Italy.

My biggest problem while cheering on the Irish and biting my nails during the match was the fact that crippled son was in Lille. He has no money and no means to get home. I had a horrible sense of “Mum, I need to stay a bit longer.”

I’ll have to grow a pair and tell him to swim the channel.

    Congrats to Ireland for the big win! I caught the end of the match – Daddy was watching when I stopped by his house yesterday. He’s become a big fan of soccer (or football as the rest of the world calls it) since my youngest played AYSO soccer about 10 years ago.

    Congrats to Congressional Democrats for finding their spines!

    And did you see the latest in Irish car repair?
    The UEFA Euro Cup is happening in Lille, France, this week. Irish soccer fans are making themselves seen in the streets celebrating their team’s advancement in the tournament. Were they rioting, fighting, or wrecking the town? No, they were celebrating. And when a group of revelers accidentally dented in the roof of a car, they did the right thing. First, they were seen stuffing money for repairs into the rim around the door. Then someone decided they could just fix it themselves, which they immediately banded together to do. They managed to knock the dent out of the roof.
