Manuel Neuer

How many times have you seen a player so adorable that you wish you had a big ol’ plush doll of them to snuggle with? Marcelo springs immediately to mind. Well, Bayern Munich went ahead and made that wish a realityContinue reading

I’m With The Otter On This One

28 Jun

Otters Moermel and Ferret made their predictions yesterday. They checked out both Germany and Italy’s mini-cars laden with treats. Moermel was digging on Italy but ultimately it was Ferret who went for Germany.(Who names an otter “Ferret”?!?!) Continue reading

Germany Gets Down To It

25 Jun

Argh, I am so exhausted! Here’s another picspam catching up with Germany that I hope I can actually stay awake to post. Mesut put this shot on Facebook today with the caption “Today I was at the press conference of the DFB. On the pitch I feel better – but media relations is one of them. But now is the concentration of the match against Italy.”  We know he’s shy with the press, but he looks so pretty talking to them! Continue reading

Germany scorched Netherlands in the first half, leading by 2. The score ended up 2-1 with Mario Gomez scoring a brace and Robin van Persie nabbing one for the Dutch. I really was surprised by this match. Continue reading

Die Mannschaft Train & Badass Around Monaco

29 May

OMG! You have no idea how happy I am to see Schweini and the other Bayern boys. He looks pretty happy too. I’m sooo excited for the tournament to start so Die Mannschaft can kick the serious arse that I know that will. Whoops! I’m being a little partisan, but they are my boos. I love Spain and I’ve supported Italy my whole life. I have a major fondness for the Dutch, but this year, I think Germany is going all the way. It’s hard when so many players you like and admire are spread across so many teams. Continue reading

The Daily Drool: Champions League Group A: Bastian Schweinsteiger

1 Nov

You know, I loved Epic Bromance Month so much. I’m really sad to see it end. Since I’m going to be busy as all hell for most of November, I thought it might be fun to do another “theme” month of Drools. I thought I’d feature a member from each of the 32 teams in the Champions League, group by group.  It’ll give us something to keep our eyes open for (and it will take us in Drools right up until I finish my term and defend my thesis!) So here it goes – the first one is my darling Basti!

I love Nerd!Basti in these glasses, don’t you?  For those of you who don’t know this hot man, he’s a midfielder/vice captain for Bayern Munich and also for Die Mannschaft. Here’s another peek… Continue reading

The Daily Drool: Epic Bromance Month – Schweinski

26 Oct

These two are one of my fave bromances. I may have almost as many pictures of them as I do Sernando, which is saying something. So, how close are Bastian Schweinstieger and Lukas Podolski?

Euro 2012 Qualifier: Germany vs. Kazakhstan

26 Mar

Our intrepid goal scorers and men of the match

I personally thought this was a thoroughly enjoyable game and I liked it oodles more than the Spain game yesterday. Germany was firing on all cylinders and we saw some beautiful performances, especially from Klose, Mueller, Ozil, Aogo, Lahm and Schweinsteiger. 18 year old Mario Goetze only played 12 minutes, but made a great impression – it will be interesting to see how he develops. I also have to compliment Kazakhstan goalie David Loria. He made some great saves and without his strong play, the scoring could have been much worse. His team was just in over their heads and Germany was like a freight train – impossible to stop.
