Well, once again the Italian National Team fails to produce the true weapon they really are and does not make it out of the group stage in Euro 2004 - even though they did not lose a game. The bright side of this is that the Under 21 team won the European Championship for the 5th time in 7 tries, further outlining a bright future. Congratulations to Greece though for defeating defending champions France 1-0 in the quarterfinals – for anyone who knows about soccer it was an incredible shock. To put it in terms Americans can relate to – this is almost as shocking as when the U.S. hockey team defeated Russia in the Olympics back in ’80. My cousins (some of you might know them - Nina, Rosi, Sal) have departed for Italia with their parents as well as making the final stop in Sicilia where they will meet up with their relatives. I envy them - I would have loved to go to Sicily again but maybe I'll be able to go next summer. Hope they have a great trip! Anyways, in the near future I'll throw out a little something about the new Michael Moore film Fahrenheit 9/11. It should be interesting so please check back and see what I thought about it.
