UEFA Euro 2012: Italy vs Spain – This Is How To Get Ready

If you don’t know by now, I’m a supporter of the Italian National team in football. They’ll be taking on World and European champions Spain today in what should be the first round’s highlight game.

So, as an Italy fan, this is how I’m preparing myself for tonight’s game. The two-step process is as follows:

1 – Get the kit ready:

There’s the current kit.

The 2006 good luck-charm kit.

And the flag Italian girls gave me last summer while I was, ironically, in Spain.

2 – Call on deities:

Christianity needs to be sufficient for now, for lack of other options around.

The bible with a rosary straight from Lourdes in France.

St. Rafqa.

St. Charbel.


And a whole lot of prayers recited.

Forza Italia. #Panic

The Official UEFA Euro 2012 Song?

Update: this is not the official song. Armin Van Buuren just did an official video for it that’s Euro 2012-inspired. Shakira can still have a song be the official one :p

It’s not a Shakira song. Can you believe it?

Armin Van Buuren is delivering the official “song” for this year’s Euro 2012. It’s obviously trance and features one sentence, which is incidentally the song’s title, “We Are Here to Make Some Noise.”

I actually like it. It definitely serves as something that would get the crowds going.

As for me, I’ve got my jersey ready for next week. The flags will soon be taken out of storage. We are pumped for some football!

Yes, Forza Azzurri!
