Euro 2012 Quarterfinals Open Thread: Czech Republic v. Portugal

I like the name Vaclav Pilar.

Czech Republic v. Portugal
Quarterfinal 1
Thursday, June 21, 245 PM EDT
TV: ESPN, ESPN3, Deportes

So here we are, in the knockout round of the tournament. The first quarterfinal sees the Czech Republic take on Cristiano Ronaldo and the Jordanaires Portugal for the right to face the France v. Spain winner in the semifinals. I used to hate Cristiano Ronaldo when he played for Manchester United, but in the last couple years I've really developed a whole new level of respect for him. He's one of the best players of the last 20 years, but he has the misfortune to be laboring in the shadow of Lionel Messi, which is not easy, because Lionel Messi is very short. Anyway, yeah, the Czech Republic is playing Portugal today.

The rules are the same - no streams, yes subject lines, no big pictures, yes be nice.
