An evenining by the Necker

I was in Tübingen tonight, for a lazy evening with friends, a pipe, and some wine. We thought we’d trot down to the river Necker for a quiet evening ...

But somehow we’d forgotten that Germany were playing the opening game of the World Cup tonight, and our appointment by the river bank coincided with the end of the game!

But what a sight met us! Crowds of semi-drunk flag waving Germans, dozens upon dozens of tooting cars, also with flags – it was as if the Germans had already won the cup! Quite an experience.

So we spent a quiet evening in the gardens of the Theologicum instead!

What on earth are you doing over there? Studying? How could you miss the OPENING OF THE WORLD CUP!?!?

Have mercy on them, they know the three lions are going to eat them--they might as well rejoice while they can. I was proud of fellow North Americans Costa Rica for at least making a game of it--till that last fatal piece of Gandalfwurken.

My goodness Chris - you are taking this theology thing far too seriously. Forget about study for the next month and enjoy the celebration of popular religion - football

Yes, I know, I'm a sad theo-obsessed nut bag.
