Euro 2012


So...Ukraine did well, but will not make it to the final game of Euro 2012. It's a shame, but there are still many good teams left. I'll be out of the country for the next week (read previous blogs if you did not know that by now) which means I'll miss four important games. I'll be back in time for the final game on Sunday though providing that I choose to return to the States (that's always up in the air when I leave the country). I didn't want to leave without throwing out my well thought out deductions of the course of the final games (read: my guesses). So, here's the run down:

The following are already in:
Portugal
Germany

The next games:
Saturday: Spain vs France
Sunday: England vs Italy

Portugal will play the winner of Spain vs France game.
Germany will play the winner of England vs Italy game.

I'm picking Spain and Italy to win their games. Although England will put up a good fight.

Wednesday: Portugal vs Spain
Thursday: Germany vs Italy

Winner of Portugal vs Spain game against winner of Germany vs Italy game in the championship game.

I'm picking Spain and Germany....

Sunday: Spain vs Germany

And my pick for the winner of Euro 2012 is............



Spain

Finally Here!



I can't even begin to hide how excited I am about my trip to Haiti. Even the 4:30am airport call is not deterring my excitement level. Anyone wanna drive me?

My heart is overflowing with joy and anticipation.
I'm ready. I'm ready to go. I'm ready to be there. I'm ready to see. I'm ready to be. I'm ready to do. Simply, I'm ready.

I will have internet access (barring power outages) and will do my best to keep everyone updated with the trip.

Thank you for your continued prayers for me and the team.
