    Tournament starts Friday and ESPN will have all the games for us in here in the US.

    I'm sort of weirded-out by the expanded field of teams but I'm happy to see a team like Wales get to compete and hopefully see Bale play on a different stage.

    How in the oranje hell did the Dutch not qualify?

    Whoo! Another chance for England to show they can't perform on the big stage.

    I had to put a coworker on suicide watch during/after that game.

    I'm only half kidding.

    Half.

    I'm so steeled for the Brexit recession that this has just bounced off me.

    Yeah, not him. I was fixing computers in his office (a shared office) and at one point he slammed his fist down and screamed a couple obscenities. Then stormed off saying that England is going to be the death of him. I just laughed and told him Manchester United still sucks too.

    I think he cried a little.

    Frankly I'm used to the disappointment as well given our group stage matches. We managed to perk ourselves up against Wales but against Russia and Slovakia we were extremely average, and against a team of more quality, passion or both we were done for.
