Good News/ Bad News

Well, the bad news is: Germany is out of the competition for the Soccer World Cup 2010. I am so sad. We watched the game at a local movie theatre. Why, oh why did I not stay home for that game? It probably jinxed us. Or was it that stupid octopus Paul who predicted that Spain would win?

It's calamari for dinner tonight! Grrrr...

The good news: Now I can actually get some work done and focus on my business again. I wonder how many hours of labor were lost by German companies. Das deutsche Bruttosozialprodukt ist vermutlich im Keller seid der Fussballweltmeisterschaft.
The German National Gross Product is probably "in the basement" due to the World Cup. It always happens...

I am still proud of our team. They fought valiantly against a very strong Spanish team. At least we don't have to get into a fight with our neighbors now. I am sure there would have been problems with soccer hooligans if Germany had played Holland in the final...

Alas, one must always look on the bright side of life!
