Euro 2008: Synchronized Soccer!

The UEFA Euro 2008 tournament is in full swing, with some teams already having played two games in the group round. Yesterday in Basel, Turkey defeated Switzerland 2-1 in a match highlighted by some of the most intense rain I’ve seen in competition. The pitch was so watered down that it was past the slick phase and into the “enormous puddles that stop every ball” phase. It’s clearly evident on the replay of the first goal, scored by the Swiss. Check it out, they were practically swimming.
