As probably all of our readers already know this weekend the greatest soccer team of all time (VfB Stuttgart) won the German Bundesliga for the first time in 15 years. It was totally unexpected and therefore it is even sweeter now.
During our travels this year Stuttgart was televised several times and every time we got to see them play they won and captured first place. After a few ups and downs this season we watched them again last weekend and they were again in first place on the last day of the season. The last and most important game was also televised in Mexico and we couldn’t wait to watch the game, but then a catastrophe happened. Our landlord didn’t pay the cable bill and cable was turned off for the most important soccer game of the last 15 years. You can imagine how frustrated I was.
In a previous post we mentioned a friend of ours who we referred to as Dave the Prick. That actually wasn’t our own name for him. He’s well known in Seattle under that name. But we take it all back. Most people who know Dave probably wouldn’t even dare to ask if they could come over to his house at 8:15 in the morning to watch a soccer game that he didn’t really care about. No one really would expect any answer from him other than “F—, no!” But luckily we got his life-partner Terri on the phone the night before and she agreed that Dave would be up and would let us in.
Thanks Dave and Terri and thanks to the greatest soccer team on earth, who has the chance to also win the German Trophy next weekend. So if you missed them becoming German Champion don’t forget to watch them win the trophy next weekend.
