Germany Goes Home

1 Jul

I’ve been in a massive pout since Germany got eliminated. I turned to other sports, drinking and napping. Nothing has eased the pain. Now, here I sit in the pub, awaiting the final. Before that starts, I had to say goodbye to Die Mannschaft. Here they are leaving  and arriving home. Sadness. Continue 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.

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
