Iceland vs. Scotland

The Euro Cup is on and even with Iceland's tiny support containment, people are still crazy about football. When I was on the field trip some Austrians had seen the newspaper declaring Austria had lost to France and they were quite distressed. It reminded me that I was in Europe now and it reminded me of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Last week when Scotland was playing on Iceland's soil, Scottish kilts wearers started to appear on Monday and by Wednesday it looked as if, in a fellow spectator's words, "Scotland had conquered Iceland". We couldn't get tickets so we watched outside the fence. Scotland won 1-0.

Lots of kilts! And drunk Scots on the bus.

Part of the Scottish celebration afterwards. The English Pub became the Scottish Pub for the night. Nice.
