The Euro 2008, with its thrilling zero-zero games and diving pansies, is in full-swing. I've watched a bunch of matches, more out of love-of-sport then out of love-of-footie. The Dutch team is crazy good this year and are actually fun to watch. They beat the bejesus out of the Italians (3-0) and the French (4-1) last week and I'll be looking for them to go all the way. The Turks played what was probably the match of the tournament so far, needing a win, they were down 2-0 with 15 minutes remaining against the Czech Republic and the formidable Petr Čech. At 75 minutes they scored to make it 2-1, at 87 minutes they scored to make it 2-2 and on their ensuing possession captain Nihat Kahveci buried a 40-meter shot to give the dark-horse Turks a spot in the Quarters.

That's all well and good, but that is not the reason for this post. A much much more important match was played in Vienna on Sunday. The Austria Topless Women's team spanked the German Topless Women's team 10-5 in beach soccer (SFW link, for NSFW photos click here). If WWL showed this, many many more American [men] would probably watch soccer.

They not only despise pants, but shirts are apparently a big no-no as well. And there are more cameras there than at the Super Bowl.

So when does that Euro 2008 start? Or did it finish?
