Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm especially glad for Miroslav Klose, former Werder Bremen striker from the top period. Most goals of anyone in the Cup.

It's pretty crazy here right now, for a semi-final win. But it only lasted an hour, perhaps because it's still raining.

I'm also satisfied that ZDF went into the favelas, and reported from there even 15 minutes before first kick.

the Bread and Circuses are almost over; then we return to what governments have passed while no one was looking. For example, the new German EEG.

But i don't wish to take away from Herr Klose.

I usually don't watch. Mostly because I always predict Germany will lose (that's how German I am). If favorable circumstances materialize, I usually hear some screaming outside my window. I looked up the score when people kept screaming like drunkards. A bit surreal.

Was it anywhere near like in Buenos Aires?
