Jun. 29th, 2008

The Euro 2008 Final is ending as I write this. Did anyone watch the final or the other matches?

How do you think Romania did? I think that they did pretty well, and I don't blame Mutu for missing that shot that would have eventually allowed Romania into the quarter finals. Mutu, in my opinion, was the only one holding up the Romanian team. I also think that Lobonţ did a good job, but maybe I only think that because he plays for FC Dinamo. ; )
I know that I haven't been posting anything in the past month or so, but the community wasn't very interactive for me so I got bored.

Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas about how to make this community more interesting? Should I continue the vocab days?
