One of my better investment decisions. (But sadly unlikely to be my best.)

Three weeks or so ago, I put some money on the Spanish to win Euro 2008.  Following last night’s hugely-impressive demolition of Russia, they’re through to the final.  Fourteen teams have fallen aside:  I’m very pleased with myself for selecting one of the two remaining.

Trouble is, of course, that the other team remaining is Germany.  With the result that – in complete ignorance, and entirely by accident – I’ve broken the number one rule of gambling on football:  never, ever, ever bet against the Germans.

Oh well.  We’ll see.  They don’t always win finals, do they?
