football confessions



i have a confession to make. i'm a football fan. not all the time, though. only every 4 years, during the world championship. then i suddenly become a beer-drinking, bet-making, loud-shouting fan obsessed with every goal the german team makes. during that time i am not much short of getting a german flag tatooed on my forehead and giving high fives to everyone in my building and at the local supermarket whenever germany has a game coming up.



so it's only natural that i have already cancelled all plans between june 11 and july 11, when the games are on in south africa. if you're rooting for the german team, like me, you can show your support by going to der-vierte-stern-fuer-deutschland.de, an iniative by championship sponsor Mercedes. this is the place to meet other fans, win stuff or even become fan of the day. The 4th star for Germany (as seen on the photo below) symbolizes the 4th football championship win for Germany. It's not won just yte, but it doesn't hurt to believe in it.

  1. Oh, ihre Tasche ist fabelhaft!
    Ich bin auch nur alle 4 Jahre Fan...naja, alle 2 Jahre eigentlich - zur EM schau ich auch alle Spiele. Aber der Zusammenhalt der Deutschen in dieser Zeit ist einfach toll, das ist ja einige der wenigen Zeiten in denen man mal leicht exzessiven Nationalstolz zeigen darf ohne gleich runtergemacht zu werden ;)
