Hey Nick, you should bring your family out here to Yekaterinburg. You can spend some time near the mountains to relax. When the game comes on, we have a big finished basement that we can all watch it in!
You wonder how Mario Fernandes is Russian? (He is a naturalized citizen from playing professionally in Russia for a while).One of the fun parts of modern international soccer is wondering, "how is that guy eligible for that country" and looking it up.

During a Euro 2020 press conference on Monday, soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo irritably moved two bottles of Coca-Cola, one of the official sponsors of the event, and then picked up a bottle of water.

By the end of the press conference for the European Championship, Coca-Cola's shares had dropped 1.6%, to $55.22 from $56.17. That lopped $4 billion off the beverage behemoth's market value, with the shares sinking another 0.6% on Tuesday to $55.08.
