Still Raining

Well you'll never believe this, but it's raining! I can't help but think about the summer (96) that my friends Sherri and Tiffaney spent working at a Girl Scout camp here in Germany. They said it rained the entire summer, every single day. I believe it. (I believed it then, but I still believe it now) So much for our plans to go to the zoo.

Tonight is the championship game for Euro 2004. Greece is playing Portugal. The hosting country happens to be Portugal so I'm root, root, rooting for the home team. Apparently both Greece and Portugal have been doing better than expected so it's nice that two underdogs are playing. On the plane back from San Francisco I sat next to a Greek guy, my age, and he and I chatted about the tournament. He said the Greeks are very excited about their team as they have never gotten this far in the tournament (and that was before they made it to this final game). Kevin and I are going to go to Down Under, Home of Wings--the Australian bar we went to on my birthday--and watch the game. I hope everyone else will be rooting for Portugal as it's always kind of weird to be cheering for the opposition in a room full of serious fans.

Just wait, seems like we might be out of this rainy misery by Wednesday.
