Where to find the best frozen drinks in DC

It’s heating up and there is nothing more refreshing than a frozen drink on a hot, sticky day. Summers in DC don’t have to be full of sweaty suffering.  You know the days: when your cu-lots are sticking to your inner thigh and your hair is frizzy and pressed to your dripping scalp. Your sunglasses keep slipping off your nose, your shirt has turned a darker shade of it’s former self, and swamp ass is setting in.

Never fear, Slurpees and alcohol will be your new bff and aid in your recovery from the summer heat!

Croatia

Met sweet victory in their rematch against Turkey, after their UEFA EURO 2008 quarter-finals loss. After the playoffs the team now heads toward the finals, leaving Turkey in the dust.

Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is proud to continue their record of gracing every EUFA European Championship final tournament since independence. With a scary start to UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying, losing to Lithuania, they ultimately succeed in excelling to the finals.

Denmark

The 1992 champions, Denmark, defeated Portugal to qualify automatically. Now in Group B, Denmark enters their eighth UEFA European Championship final tournament, facing Portuguese once again.

England

Finishing first place in their qualifying section, England is making a big improvement since their last major championship showing at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Qualification for the tournament went smoothly as they topped their section with an unbeaten record with their new coach, Roy Hodgson.

France

With the hope to add to their 1984 and 2000 victories, France is appearing at their teams sixth successive finals. “It’s a great satisfaction to be through to EURO,” said coach Blanc.

Germany

Runners-up to Spain in 2008, Germany is the EUFA European Championship’s most successful team in history. Qualifying for the finals with a perfect record, the team is looking for a fourth title.

Greece

A team that remained undefeated in qualification, Greece struggled with a series of narrow victories leading them to finish first in Group F. Although the team lacks star names, the emphasis on team spirit will help them complete their goal to repeat their 2004 success.

Italy

Gaining top spot in Group C, Italy enjoyed an impressive qualifying round. Hoping to add a second European crown to their 1968 success, the team finished their qualifying campaign undefeated.

Netherlands

With the 1988 UEFA European Championship being the Netherlands pride and joy over the past 4 decades, the team is ready for some new silverware. The anticipation for the team’s success is high after they stormed through qualifying.

Poland

Making it to their second UEFA EURO championship final tournament since 2008, Poland will be a force to recon with as the team plays on their home soil. Having struggled with some inconsistency over the past 18 months, especially in their game against Lithuania, we will see how the co-hosts handle their competition.

Portugal

Portugal may have started out slow, but after their six straight wins the team was able to secure second place as the runner-up in Group H. The team hopes to improve after their near misses in recent tournaments.

Republic of Ireland

Facing tough competition, the Republic of Ireland will make their second appearance at a UEFA European Championship finals. The team will need to place Spain and Italy to progress from Group C.

Russia

Russia approaches UEFA EURO 2012 confidently after topping a major tournament qualifying group for the first time in five attempts. Suffering from criticisms toward the national team, coach Advocaat hopes that the criticism will die down due to a difficult ten-match competition that was deservedly won.

Spain

Defending champions, Spain will attempt to become the first team in history to win three major tournaments in succession. Coach Del Bosque stated: “Nobody has ever won a sequence of EURO, World Cup, EURO, that’s the huge goal we have ahead of us; now let’s see if we can pull it off.” They are the team to beat.

Sweden

Sweden gained their place at EUFA EURO 2012 as best runners-up in qualifying. The team beat the undefeated Netherlands on their last-day, despite their lack of star Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was suspended for the game.

Ukraine

Ukraine, one of the co-hosts at UEFA EURO 2012, is making their first major appearance since the 2006 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals. Coach Oleh Blokhin’s minimum target of advancing from Group D will be exciting to watch as Ukraine prepares for their first finals as an independent nation.
