The Euro Cup is here.
Host France and Romania open the European soccer championship this afternoon in the first tournament to feature 24 teams.
And just like we see during the World Cup, you’ll notice a bunch of different flags waving in windows of vehicles throughout the city.
Some people say they don’t like that.
I remember one person telling me that “we live in Canada, we should be waving Canadian flags.”
But I completely disagree.
This country has welcomed people from all over the world, what’s wrong with allowing them — us — to celebrate our love of the beautiful game.
It’s a tradition.
Heck, I remember holding onto a huge Italian flag while my dad barreled down the road in his old orange and black Mercury Cougar.
As for this year’s Euro, the host French are the favourites to win, but there are some great teams and you never know which country will make a surprising run.
I’m going with France to take it all.
And as for my Azzurri… I’m not too hopeful.
