^ Great to see you back, Ken...and the soccer thread is the perfect place to find you.
I'm pretty content with the Euro 2012 qualification outcomes. Germany basically cruising through with some dominant performances along the way has made the qualifiers particularly satisfying for me.
As a double whammy, my beloved Bayern Munich is rampant this season; atop the Bundesliga, playing imperious football, conceding nothing thanks to the magnificent Manuel Neuer and a tighter, more confident back four in defense. I'm quietly certain that Bayern will push very far in the Champions' League, as well. Overall, just a wholly positive phase for me as a Bayern die-hard.
