In a few minutes I'll leave to the official Fan Fest to watch the World Cup Semi-Final Germany vs. Italy.
This match is the last obstacle between the german team and the Finals in Berlin on Sunday.
In German there's a proverb saying "Jetzt geht's um die Wurst". Literally translated it means "Now it's about the sausage" and it means "It's neck or nothing" (at least the LEO translator says so).
I don't know whether my photo shows one of that mysterious sausages but it's the closest analogy I have for my current tension.
Apart from that I have no idea what the german soccer team would do with such a sausage beside simply eating it.

Well, I'm curious how my next posting will look like - happy or sad.
In a few days this posting and the next one are only two consecutively chapters in my blog. The triumph or the tragedy that occured between them is lost. What a pity, independent from the result of the match.


  1. I'm curious too, how you next post will look like after Italy won the semi finals? How's is Germany now? Will everything go back to normal after 3 wonderful weeks of success???? Or will the optimism stays a little bit longer.....
