Hit a Pub it’s Euro Cup 2012 Time

So single ladies it’s a good time to hit a pub with your single friends and start mingling as it’s European football’s quest for the Cup.

The games start on Friday June 8th and they are being played in Poland and the Ukraine.

For those of you that don’t know the rules of football, I’ve included the basics below:

* A match is played in two 45 minute halves, by two teams of eleven players each. The game begins with the toss of a coin, and the winning captain decides which goal to defend or to take the first kick off.

* All players must use their feet head or chest to play the ball. Only the goalkeeper is allowed to use their hands, and only within their designated goal area. The aim of the game is to score a goal, which is achieved by kicking or heading the ball into the opposition team’s goal

* If the ball touches or crosses the side line, it is thrown back in by the team that was not the last to touch the ball.

* The game is controlled by a central referee, and two linesmen. They award free kicks and penalties when rules are broken. For continual breaking of rules or for a bad foul, the player may be sent off.

If you want to know more, go to Wikipedia and read up on the teams and players: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Euro_2012_qualifying

If you don’t care to know the rules or whose playing, just know that there a ton of foreign cuties who you can stare at for 90 minutes. Enjoy!

I’ve joined a pool at work and I’ve picked the Netherlands to take it all, who are you cheering for?
