Its so wonderful to see how sports brings people together to have a great time, and home country spirit!~

OMG, how do I wish I could go and see the match in a establishment as shown in the pictures above. I have to work Sunday!! To everybody, have lots and lots of fun! We'll watch it after my shift.

I wish there was a spot for Louisville, Kentucky! And I want some windmill glasses!!!

There is actually: Molly Malon's on Bardstow road in Louisville

Correction: Molly Malone at 933 Baxter Avenue, near the intersection

Thank you, we've added it to the list.

Dear Dutch people, I'm afraid will not any to celebrate this Sunday, if Spain play as they know there will not option for Holland,...

Dear Pulpo Paul. I hope you have enough handkerchiefs to cry into when Spain loses the match. The Dutch are poised to win and they will.... Go Oranje

Thank you so much for this list! I've posted a link on our homepage to help spread the word. Veel plezier allemaal!

Het lijkt erop dat de venue in de Boston Area voor de NLs de Phoenix landing op Harvard Square in Cambridge is. Heb net gebeld, geen entree, wel op tijd komen want zal wel vroeg vol zitten. Alternatief lijkt de House of Blues pub bij Fenway park, Landsdowne Rd. We zien mekaar morgen!
