My neighborhood tunred into a veritable war zone last night thanks to all the legal and illegal fireworks getting launched into the air from the drought-stricken fields. Some of it was actually quite nice, minus the blaring car alarms and barking dogs.
Unfortunately, we have to wait one more day for the Euro 2016 fireworks to continue.
After three straight draws, the team found a rich vein of form, led by Willian. A bit of real-life mirroring there, though with much better results. We're up to second (Manchester United are first) and through to the quarterfinals of the League Cup.
