Soccer birthdays: Junior, the Brazilian genius who played in the 1982 and 1986 World Cups, turns 58 today. Full name: Leovegildo Lins da Gama Júnior. That’s great.

Ahead on the blog today*: It has to be the Euro final, right? But, then again, there’s a pretty solid lineup of MLS action this weekend, starting tonight in Kansas City. So Steve’s going to spend the whole afternoon talking about BBQ.

Big Important Stories of the Day Weekend: EURO 2012 FINAL!!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!!! It seems like this has been going on 4-eva, right? Enjoy it. Once every four years, guys and girls. Once every four years.

What we should all watch on TV: Sporting Kansas City-Chicago Fire (8 p.m., NBC Sports Network), featuring the comedic stylings of Arlo White and Kyle Martino (pictured above, right).

We’ll leave you with this: How much easier is it going to be to work during the day now that the Euros are basically over? Productivity: higher. Happiness: lower.

*Always subject to change; you know how it is

    Productivity: lower
    Happiness: no change.
    The FINAL is coming and we must anticipate it’s glory while educating ourselves on the match up. Happiness drops with the realization of the end but rises with the anticipation of the final.

    I figure I can replace the lapse in productivity due to the EUROS by filling time by tracking down Clint Dempsey transfer rumors.
