    Just when I thought soccer was boring.

    The end of the Turkey/Croatia game was wild. Scoreless through 119 minutes of play, Croatia scores. Turkey scores 30 secs into extra time to tie it up and wins it in the shootout. I turned it on late and wanted to see a shootout. What an unbelievable finish. Check out your local SportsCenter highlights for this one. I hate soccer, but it was a great "it's not over until it's over" moment.

    I love soccer, and that was a great game. This Euro cup has provided some fantastic entertainment. I tire of the club games, but international soccer is really great. The passion is unbelievable.

    Re: Just when I thought soccer was boring.

    Turkey are the cardiac kids. They scored the winner against Switzerland in injury time, scored in the 75th, 87th, and 89th to complete the ridiculous comeback against the Czechs, and now scored in the 120th to win in penalties. They've actually had the lead something like a total of 3 minutes the entire tournament and they're in the semis. Amazing.
