France is the team to bet on for the UEFA 2008

Did I mentiono that I live in Costa Rica? It's a small Central American country above Panama and below Nicaragua. Being a Latin country, Soccer or rather football is king.

Well right now it's the rainy season or "winter" as they call it here. So here I am stuck inside the house with nothing to do except browse the internet and trying to find a nice european football team to root for.

I've decided to go for France. Why? well for one thing, even though I am asian I do have some French background. It's a long story that I'll tell you about some other time.

Anyway, I like the French Football team because:

  1. It has made it in the UEFA playoffs, which comes up only every 4 years, 3 times and won it twice. Once in 1960 where it lost and in 1984 and 2000 where it won the cup. And did I mention that the UEFA cup has only been around since 1960? That means that they are 2 in 11 which I must say is pretty good and the country with the best record so far. Ha ha ha I love a winner and if I was confident about my sports betting skills, I'd put my money on them.
  2. After doing so research on soccer(I'm still trying to figure out the rules by the way) I found out that their team stats are simply amazing and are 2nd below Italy.

cheers

What about soccer or rather football|?

One thing that I am passionate about is sports. I love American football and I never can get enough which does cause a problem for me afgter the football season is over.

So I thought to myself, why not try to get passionate about soccer. The majority of the world population watch soccer enough to have riots, threaten referrees and players and heck, even bet on it. So there's got to be something to it.

So now my goal will be to learn all that I can about football(soccer) and and see if I one day I can reach a level where I'll paint my face, wear the gear and get in a football brawl.

I think that right now is a perfect time to start since the Euro 2008 cup is coming up in July.
