VIDEO: Thousands In Poland Go Nuts When Robert Lewandowski Scores

What's better than being in the stadium to see your home country score the opening goal in Euro 2012? Being out in a square watching it on big screens with tens of thousands of your closest, sweatiest friends.

People dressed in red seemingly everywhere there is room for a human body to fit exploded on Friday when Poland's Robert Lewandowski scored to give the host country a 1-0 lead in the tournament's opening match. It may not be as good as being in the stadium (it's really not), it's all sort of incredible.

Hopefully there is nobody there with a disease that can be passed by sweat or body odor. That is unless Lewandowski heads down there and can pass his disease, known as "Awesome", onto those thousands of lucky Poles. Although I suppose if Awesome was passed like that then Wojciech Szczesny wouldn't have gone diving around in the middle of the box and Poland would have won.
