World Cup 2006 - June 17

Unfortunately, we tied.

...but, what an amazing game! And the atmosphere here is incredibly surreal. The streets of the city were filled with fans for hours. The stadium was electric. I have never been to more exciting soccer game.

There are only a few places in the world where this shirt doesn’t get double takes… It is weird to be in a place overseas where for once, it is ok to be a loud crazy American.

Even the urinals capture the spirit of the day.

I have an awesome film of the atmosphere in the stands which I will have to share when we get home. Here is a photo of the kick-off. We are headed to Munich today.
