Radio dynamo/stand-up gadabout/disgraced Navy Seal Dane Imrie has weighed in on my self-indulgent “who should I root for in Euro 2012?” quest. Let’s hear it, Dane.
Practical Answer: Netherlands/Holland. Practical ball control. Funny shirt names. Wild abuse of “heyyyy, that guy’s from the Antilles” rule.
A reasonable answer, although I’ve never really glommed on to the Netherlands before. For some reason, when I went to Euro and World Cup games at O’Hanlons (Regina bar and place where I vomited aggressively to the point I had to be dragged out), there was enormous support for Holland. Maybe O’Hanlons is located in the Lil’ Amsterdam portion of the city. Actually, that would explain all the people using windmills to ingest their drugs. Holland’s a great pick on paper, but emotionally I just can’t make that relationship work. I just don’t feel that spark. Poland remains in the lead.
