Broken Clockwork ~ Okay, I'm a Russian Now ;-)

After a thoroughly tepid, uninspired, dispirited, borderline incompetent and losing performance by Marco van Basten's Dutch team, I'm now a temporary Russian in support of their Dutchman coach Guus Hiddink's team!-) This other White-Blue-Red team really performed well today and I look forward to seeing them in the rest of the Euro2008. And it's excellent to remember all the ties between Netherlands and Russia, including Peter the Great's incognito trip to Holland in 1697 which laid the foundation for so much Russian development. It is very much worth reinforcing these historic links and supporting current progress.
