Turkey Wins!

When KU made it to the Final Four in ’88, everyone hit the streets in little ol’ Lawrence, KS, honking and yelling.  Last night, Turkey defeated Croatia in the quarters of the European championship by penalty kick after a dramatic late goal to tie, followed by extra minutes.  Well, I couldn’t sleep with all the racket, that must have been in every town in the entire country.  It was Lawrence times a billion or whatever (I’m too tired to do the math).  Anyway, congratulations, my Turkish hosts!

Incidentally, I just saw that Sam is witnessing the events from another part of the continent, and he clearly knows more about the stuff than I do.

And what the hell kind of sports writing is this?  Maybe it’s just a bad translation.

Turkey left it late again to record victory, with a dramatic penalty-shoot out success after an equaliser in injury time of extra-time at Vienna’s Ernst Happel Stadium left Croatia defeated and took Fatih Terim’s side into the Euro 2008 semi-final.
