Orange is the color of the day! That’s because Holland has gotten off to a great start in the Euro 2008 soccer tournament, with victories over Italy (3-0) and France (4-1). I’m not much of a fan really, but it’s great fun to see how the country has come alive and the national color is out all over. Read all the latest news on the Euro 2008 site.

Update: Well, it’s all over now.  Last night Germany lost to Spain, 1-0.  A kind of surprising result after all the higher-scoring matches.  I watched the Dutch lose to Russia in the Old Town Square in Prague, then saw the Russians lose to Spain a few nights later.

    Ruud van Nistlerooy was my favorite player in the English Premier League for several years. I see he has 2 appearances and 1 goal. Wish he and Holland the best of luck, but hope England does well also!

    Looked at the Euro2008 site further, and I guess England is not in the competition and I don’t know if they just didn’t make it or are they not part of this competition!

    England, surprisingly, did not qualify for the tournament this time around, edged out by Croatia and Russia in their group.
