The party focuses not only on classic themes like direct democracy, transparency and online data protection, but also on demands that would be unthinkable to traditional politicians.

On August 14, 1880, the Cologne Cathedral was completed.  This photograph taken on April 24, 1945 shows the Cologne Cathedral standing undamaged while the entire area surrounding it is completely devastated. Railroad station and Hohenzollern Bridge lie damaged to the north and east of the cathedral. 

I spent a significant amount of time down the river in Mainz, but Cologne was my fun escape.  I remember coming out of the train station with the enormous cathedral towering over.

Ok Joachim.  We can wear matching blue sweaters.  No problem.  I like that shade of blue anyway.

The oft-fired, once-relegated coach had always believed in  development of a team, not merely the reliance on stars. He left that  strategy to Italy and France and England. They are home watching on  television.
Germany plays on, stylishly.

I have a feeling, I’d love working for Loew.  I could learn a lot from him.
I wonder if he would dictate the shirt/sweaters we would wear to work.  Hm.

What the Hell?  Goalies used to wear HATS?

Actually it is how they came up with the term “keeper” for goalies. Back in the day there wasn’t typically dressing rooms where the visiting teams could lock up their wallets/etc.. and with all the hooligans around the team bench stuff would always get stolen. So the “keepers” would keep the teams’ valuables under their hats during the game. And now you know the rest of the story.


Interesting!  Cute hat, but I prefer hat-less.  I’d hate to listen to goalies griping about missing the ball due to the hat.

Team USA’s Landon Donovan scores in stoppage time, beating Algeria 1-0. United States advances to round of 16 at World Cup.

Next game, let’s disguise the players from the refs.  Let’s see how the calls are made, then.

“I think we were pretty good,” Podolski said.

Pretty darn good, in my opinion.
