The Czech Republic and Portugal meet on Thursday in the first of the Euro 2012 quarterfinals (2:45, ESPN). With two wins and a loss, the Czechs won Group A with six points. Portugal had the same group-play record, good for second place in Group B.
Also: Every zoo in Europe now has a Euro 2012 animal oracle, even the low-rent zoos that feature a goat, a manticore and “out of the mists of history, the legendary esquilax, a horse with the head of a rabbitand . . . the body of a rabbit.”
Anyhoo, here’s a photo gallery of Euro 2012 animal oracles.
