Default Fußball!

I too am in Germany at the moment, and have been for the past 6 weeks. I've been watching the World Cup since it started and today, thanks to Portugal, the USA is in the next round!!!

What a major blast...have to get up early tomorrow on Saturday to watch Germany play Paraguay in the first game of the Achtel-Finale. 8:30am here in Düsseldorf. Loser goes home. And the US has to play Mexico on Monday at 8:30am here, 2:30am EDT for winner moves to the next round.

I've been a football convert for awhile, since I've been travelling to Europe and learned what it was all about, being a naive American. But, oh, how things change when you understand the game and just what is at stake...

The World Cup is a struggle for national identity and recognition. The best of the best, despite the fact that two teams countries may be at war with each other. Football is more important to the people of those countries.

No TV pics here, and I left my USB cable in the US...grrrr. I hope to get some shots of German reactions AFTER they go to the next round, if they do. Or, if they lose tomorrow morning, I'll just walk outside and take pictures of a lot of very disappointed Germans...

thanx, Girard ... I forgot, that football isn't well known in the US.

And on Monday we will see, if Germany meets USA or Mexico in the next round ... quarter final :-)
It's a happy german weekend ... hehe.

I hope we'll meet the US boys, cause it might help making football more popular in the US, when they reach the quarter finals.

Greetings from Germany
