If any of you saw the Turkey/Croatia Euro Cup quaterfinal game today I don't really have to say anything more than the title of this post, if you hadn't here's what happened. 0-0 Extra time literally maybe a minute left until the game goes to penalty kicks. Turkey's goalie makes a huge mistake and Croatia scores on a header. All of Croatia rejoices and the announcers are calling the game over, literally seconds later Turkey scores.Turk's go crazy. I go crazy.Croatians all over the world are pulling their hair. On to penalty kicks. Turkey wins in penalty kicks! If you haven't jumped on the Turkey bandwagon already, you might as well. Their journey through this tournament had been incrediable. Earlier in the tournament they were down 2-0 to the Czceh Republic and scored 3 goals in the final 15 minutes of play to win.They had 3 games,3 comeback wins. These guys are in a league of their own when it comes to clutch.

Imagine being in Turkey when that game happened!!! yep. I'm here and it was absolute pandemonium! Turks were throwing chairs in the restaurant I was at watching the game. And then, when they did the penalty kicks, all the guys had their arms around each other for every kick! It was great. And, the streets were crazy that night. I didn't get to bed until after 3 am. Wed. night is germany vs. Turkey! Go Turkey!!!
