MONTE CARLO, Monaco - I've been in Europe for 3 weeks now and it has been nothing but sublime weather and crazy soccer fans up to this point. I arrived in Monaco on Sunday, a bit early as nothing 'really' starts until Tuesday. I was elsewhere on the Riviera and Monaco is more of the same except I moved from rocky beaches to sandy beaches. I went in with 3 other Americans, Carter Mattig, Chuck Bower, and Matt Cohn-Geier on an apartment in Beausoleil which is just across the border from Monaco in France. So far the home team has two still alive in the main and two others qualified for the consolation which starts bright and early tomorrow at 3pm.
