I know that not everything in wikipedia is factually correct, but I'd like to think that this one is:
Bars in the Veltins-Arena, a major football ground in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, are interconnected by a 5 km long beer pipeline. It is the favorite method for distributing beer in such large stadiums, because the bars have to overcome big differences between demands during various stages of a match; this allows them to be supplied by a central tank.
Now, if you have to cheer for Germany (and I do, cuz they gave England a spanking yesterday and sent them home crying), then where better to watch football?
Oh..well, and there are other blessings in Germany.....
OKAY OKAY!!! Before you call the spca to put down this cougar, I will, in my own defence state that this baby goal keeper (Manuel Neuer) is the complete doppelganger of my long ago boyfriend in University. Oliver was the guy I would have married. And, I was 24 back then too, ya know! I'd have been divorced in ten years, but oh well....
On a slightly serious note, folks, Ollie has been on my mind a lot in the last week or so...He's married with kids now so we are not in touch. But, when someone comes to mind so much, I wonder why. I hope he is well and all is fine. I'm sending thoughts out to him now and if you feel like sending him some good vibes too...please do.
sweet dreams my lovelies
