Approaching 1,000 Views, Thanks to Russia

 As the blog approaches 1,000 views in under two months, we have many people to thank, both home and abroad.  I don't think it would be right to go any further if we didn't take time to thank our biggest international audience from none other than Russia.

Russia has accounted for nearly one-tenth of our audience, so we're going to attempt to continue that trend here at Three if by Strike.  Plus, with Russia leading Group A in the 2012 Euro Cup, we now have someone to root for.

Russia, the largest country in the world at over 6.5 million square miles, is home to the world's largest reserves of mineral and energy resources.  Run by President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, it is home to over 143 million citizens.  Their currency is known as Ruble (no, not the cheap vodka), and they drive on the right (correct) side of the road.

Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about why we care so much about Russia.  Football.  Not American football, either.  Russia tied Poland today, 1-1, giving them the lead in Group A by a point over the Czech Republic.  Russia will take on a struggling Greece on Saturday, and we'll be watching with pride.
