I'm not a huge soccer fan, even though my son plays high school soccer, but I have been to soccer matches in Europe and nothing really compares. Those people are nuts over there about their soccer. They are the definition of a fan-atic.
QFT, insane fans. I have seen/been caught up in some huge riots that would be unimaginable in the States (during a sporting event) while I was in Italy. For all the publicity English hooligans get, I actually think Italian "ultras" are crazier, mostly because they do the same things as hooligans... only without the alcohol.
Zimmerman is getting back on track as well. Finishing strong will be good for him.
