How Will You Be Watching Euro 2012?

Another tournament is about to begin in a far off land. While we may feel that we’re almost there thanks to the wonder of television and wall-to-wall coverage, there remains the issue of trying to figure out how to squeeze Euro 2012 matches into our busy lives. European soccer, after all, is a priority for most of us reading this article, but how do you plan on personally watching the matches?

If you live in the United States, like me, you’ll have to figure out a way to watch as many games as possible. But since the games will be kicking off every day from June 8-July 1 at Noon ET and 2:45pm ET (i.e. 9am PT and 11:45am PT), how will you watch these games? Will you find a way to watch them live, are you planning on watching them on ESPN3.com or the WatchESPN app? Or will you block off all forms of communication and watch the games on DVR after you get home from work?

Are any of you planning on taking vacation to ensure you can watch games? Or have you found a convenient way to watch as many games as possible live? Share your stories below.

For those of you who are living in the United States, the challenging part of blocking off all forms of communication is that it could backfire. Soccer is becoming more popular each year, and the popularity of soccer on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites means that it’s very easy to accidentally see a result or overhear a conversation regarding a scoreline.

I’m interested in hearing your stories, and finding out if your method of watching massive tournaments like Euro 2012 has changed at all.

Thanks in advance for your stories!
