Weekend Sports

Next Sunday the German Derby takes place on my local track here in Hamburg.
Hot fav is BOSCACCIO and as usual i know next to nothing about him nor about
the other runner, since i focus on British and Irish racing. Will he stay the distance ?
Dunno. Will he like the softish ground ? Dunno. He has won all of his four races so
far and his jockey Dennis Schiergen is raving about him, that he has not played out
his full potential yet, so a good run can be expected. I am not best pleased with odds
@ 3, but will bet a couple of Euros on him and also on another jolly at higher odds
after paddock inspection.***UP

The European Football Championships made it very clear, that highly paid mediocre
players do not play better, than mediocre paid mediocre players. The quality of the
games was dreadful at times, when even Ronaldo (POR) is not able to shoot a free
kick over the wall, De Bruyne (BEL) not able to execute a decent corner kick or
Baumgartlinger (AUT) running slow as a boat. And if i had shot a penalty kick in
my active days like Graziano Pelle in the shootout versus Germany i had been
demoted to the girls team right away. Seven ripped Puma-shirts and a burst Adidas
ball in one game fit perfectly into the picture and how a self-respecting player can
enter the pitch with this sort of footwear is beyond me.

On the positive side is my pre-tournament bet on France to lift the trophy @ 4.20
