Dispatch from the Land of Lederhosen
Written by Bwog Staff
Bwog correspondant Lucie Kroening describes football festivities in Sudetenland in the first of a summer series of dispatches from around the world.
Overheard on the loudspeaker at the World of Football complex in front of the Reichstag (also live on the radio):
German commentator (in English, with slight accent): Today the USA is playing against the Czech Republic…(mockingly) Where in the world is that? (followed by prolonged snickering)
USA vs. Czech, Gelsenkirchen, Germany
Final score 0:3 (duh.)
A wonderful Freudian slip (this is translated):
The Army, I mean, Americans aren’t playing so badly! Sorry, that was a textbook Freudian slip.
How do you spot an American in Germany?
Try the kid in the Virginia Tech hat sitting on the steps of the Reichstag, eating JIF peanut butter out of the can with a spoon.
