A half hour into the Germany v. Brazil game, and the Axis Superpower is up 5-0. Ouch, y’all, this is painful.
(No, I mean GREAT! It’s WONDERFUL! Uber alles, everybody!)
Now, as your faithful German reporter, I am at a disadvantage right now, in part because I had to take a break from the internet for about a week while I was on vacation and have missed a few games. I am also only following today’s match through the NY Times liveblog because, UGH, Univision now requires my Comcast password. What a crock of Scheiße. But I am proud to see our Hitler mutagen appears to be working as the footballers of the Fatherland approach the pitch with the fu(h)ror of a mustachioed He Who Must Not Be Named. Good on ya, Germany!
Anyway, is everyone still following the World Cup, slack-jawed at Brazil’s stunning apparent apathy? Is this all part of some Faustian bargain, or do we think that Muller is Mephistopheles himself? If not, what else are you doing today? I ordered a new sleeping bag for camping that I’m pretty psyched about.
