Damn. What a nail-biter. The game between Germany and Spain, that is.
I had so been looking forward to the European Championship final yesterday. It seemed like everything was possible for Germany after the incredible game against Portugal and the last-minute win over Turkey.
But yesterday, it was just not meant to be.
Spain just deserved the title more this time around. Their first major title in 44 years. Well, I guess it was overdue then… and the spaniardsÂ were just quicker, more alert yesterday.
Although, I still think the referee sucked.
It was kind of cool to be able to watch the game live… and from what I read across the Internet, some of my fellow Germans here did the same thing. Good for you! We need to keep up some German pride over here :) I hope I am still allowed to pout a little bit… even though our team just simply didn’t deserve to win.
What kind of game watcher are you? Do you sit still andÂ cheer or grieve in silence? Do you jump up and down, tear at your hair and bury your face?
I am the latter.
I can’t sit down if I am emotionally attached to a team [which really only happensÂ for a championship or something like that]. IÂ was jumping on the couch, collapsing on the couch, hiding behind it…Â the wholeÂ shebang. Oh yeah,Â and I swear, too. Occasionally.
It must have been pretty funny though. Â J can probably tell you all about it :)
