2 - 0 at the moment.

I think that Germany are playing really well.

i'm an aussie for the night - not too suprised at rhe score so far sad

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 20:28:00

Ah, sorry Nancy.

My DH is German so it is clear who we are supporting tonight.

Just managed to get DS off to bed, he was not happy at missing the game.

my dp is australian, i'm being forced to support them!

ilovemydogandMrObama Sun 13-Jun-10 20:33:19

Goooo Germany! (DP has drawn Germany in the pub sweepstakes)

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 20:44:33

oh, why did he get a red card?

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 20:46:00

wooooh, that was close

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 20:48:49

Since I am alone here, I will sing a wee song

<clears throat>


Ein Rudi Völler, es gibt nur ein Rudi Völler, ein Rudi Vöööööööööller, es gibt nur ein Rudi Vöööller

DH is watching while I MN and try to ignore that horrible horn-blowing-buzzing sound.
Should be supporting Germany, but actually cannot get into it at all.
Not like last time, when it was here - now that was really exciting! Even a total non-footie-fan like me got right into it

Not alone!
Ah Rudi, he of the wavy hair fame....

<puts HOMEMADE Brezel on the table>

Have to laugh at how they pronounce Klose (watching on ITV)

<goes to get beer>
<impressed at HOMEMADE brezel>
<feel need to mention that we had HOMEMADE bagels yesterday >

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 20:56:49


Beginning to feel a bit sorry for the Aussies.

I can't get into it at all either. I'm quite intrigued by those horns everyone keeps going on about (haven't watched a single second so far), but that's about it. DD1 was allowed to stay up late to watch the match last night (at my ILs) and was really interested in it apparently, asking lots of questions - doesn't take after me at all!

Last time was slightly more exciting as the Italian team were staying at a hotel just round the corner from where we live. Lots of policemen everywhere, big screens constructed all around the hotel so you couldn't see in (not that I would have recognised any of the Italian players).

V. loud over here now - there is going to be some late night celebrating tonight!
Hope it doesn't wake ds....

Could do with a brezel with my beer, actually
<looks hopefully and pointedly at MmeLindt>

Me too MmeL - they looked quite promising at the start. The red ard was far too harsh - even the German ZDF commentator thought so.

LinzerTorte Sun 13-Jun-10 21:00:16

Oh, you all seem to be getting into it now. I wish I could persuade DH to get into it as I might actually be able to MN in the evenings then. No sign so far, however...

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 21:06:43

<flings a Brezel at Hopes>

<hopes for a Bagel in return>

Bagels are similar to Brezel are they not? Are they put in a solution of water and soda?

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 21:07:33

Oooh, Italian team around the corner sounds good. They are seriously FIT.

<catches brezel and spreads liberally with butter>

<looks sheepish as all left-over bagels from yesterday were consumed this morning>

<makes note to make more bagels next time!>

Yes, they are v. simlar, you boil (but just in water, no soda or lauge) and then bake.

Well. That was exciting. Hopefully they'll keep it up in the next match too.

MmeLindt Sun 13-Jun-10 21:34:52

Drinks on me for the rest of the evening!

Help yourself to a Brezel.

When the commentator said "Every generation mirrors the one before" or something like it, did anyone else feel the urge to sing "and all of their frustrations/ Come beating on your door" ?....
