(no subject)

I haven't said much about the Euro 2008 Championships.  Partly, because they're on when I'm at work, so I don't see the games live, and mostly because the two teams I'd most like to see win it (France and Germany) aren't having what you'd call a stellar run of things so far.  Germany will probably get out of their group, since they only need to draw or beat lowly Austria, but France now needs to beat Italy next week to advance.  Given that Italy isn't exactly setting the world on fire, it's possible, but I'm not holding my breath.

On the other hand, the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal all seem to be putting on a show of epic proportions.

On the plus side, my fantasy Euro squad is currently out in front by ten points, though I suspect that'll diminish a bit unless Torres puts the ball in the net a lot tomorrow.

So, "Kung-Fu Panda"

It rocks.  It doesn't have the underlying martial arts film geek factor that "The Forbidden Kingdom" has, but it's got awesomness.

Blinding levels of awesomeness.

And Skidoosh.

If you've got kids, it's required viewing.  If you don't, go see it anyway.
