Germany had scored and it was 1-0. The voice could not control her enthusiasm. The Frau had made the call to me. One thing about being married to a German is, there is never a doubt as to what team she would be rooting for today for in the big game between the US and Germany.
There had not been a difference at home in rooting for a sports team since the Winter Olympics ended. But here it was again. Like a well rehearsed speech, the true German soccer fan was unleashed again. After I had listened to a bunch of nonstop euphoria and facts, the Frau was yet again telling me why this was the year that Germany was going to win the World Cup. When she was done we said our good bye and I continued on my delivery schedule.
It was later when I heard on the radio; the US had not been eliminated from the finals due to the point system. I made that return call to state the facts. The reply was so matter of fact, Oh that’s nice. What time do you think you’ll get back today? WTF
The New Moon begins tonight and the countdown has started for the next Super Moon.
