Photo of the day

Much to my dismay, the beach house we are renting does not seem to have ESPN.  Oddly, and fortunately, it does have ESPN Desportes, so I was able to watch the Euro Final.  Big Picture has a truly fabulous set of images from the tournament.  There are a couple shots that show the look on the goalkeeper as the ball goes into the net, which I find particularly compelling:

Cristiano Ronaldo (right) of Portugal scores his team’s second goal past Maarten Stekelenburg of the Netherlands during the Euro 2012 group B match between Portugal and Netherlands at Metalist Stadium on June 17 in Kharkov, Ukraine. Portugal won 2-1.

Also, got a real kick out of seeing Spanish players celebrate with their kids.  Via the Guardian:
