Euro 2012 Semifinals: Moderately Sweaty, Barely Surviving

For once, we have a proper excuse as to why our coverage of a vitally important international fixture has been useless.We didn’t sleep through Spain vs. Portugal. Nor were we out shopping, out of cellphone battery and/or range or still drunk from an editorial meeting that took place three days ago.

Nope, this time…We. Were. At. The. Game.

Walk with us through the photographic evidence of our adventure, which we have interspersed with professional shots so you can see what happened on the pitch vs. what the folks standing in front of us did with their hair all evening.

Happy Humpday fellow pleasure seekers!

Sooo…good news (for those who are not named Cristiano Ronaldo or part of the Spanish NT)! Thanks to adidas football, we’re in Donetsk today to give you our exclusive take on the creative, crazy and creatively crazy fashion stylings from the streets and beyond. Flares will be thrown, the pitch will be invaded and the whole embarrassing scene starring ourselves will be broadcast for the world to witness.

So with that, the footy targets to stalk floor is now open. Submit ‘em when you can (for Ukraine and Poland) and we’ll do our best to provide you with all the photos and gossip your little Choos desire.

Euro 2012 Quarter Finals: Performance Enhancing

Oh Kickettes, what a few days it has been.

The Czech Republic, France, Greece and England all fought valiantly in their respective quarter finals, but found themselves sliding inexorably out of the tournament and into the ether anyway, like a brand new mobile phone handset might slip out of a handbag and ruin the week of those who depend upon it for their very sanity.

What were we saying? Oh yeah. Euro 2012 quarter finals. Photos. Click here.


Euro 2012 Quarterfinal Preview: Mouthing Off

The luxury of the group stages is over and last night, over nachos and peach schnapps, we watched Portugal engage in a war of attrition against the Czech Republic’s goal.

It was a bit of a turgid affair, Kickettes, but eventually, Crisps and his slicked back style broke through the barricades and scored the only goal of the game, leading to much merriment and falling over. From us, not them.

With a trio of matches and the semifinals on the line this weekend, try not to worry too much. Your teams are going to be just fine.
