Somber Munich?

OK, so the main storyline is that Germany lost to Spain 1-0 in the Euro 2008 finals. And the mood in Munich is quite somber today, so I thought I would provide an image that may cheer everyone up. I was yelling and screaming for Germany all the way, but in the end I think Spain played too well. Well, making to the finals was not all that bad. So I share this photo that I captured out of the window of a jewerlers in the altstadt. It kind of reminds me of the scenes from the game. A little of everything going on in the stands.

This looks like my kids' play area. I think we own every playmobile "thing" known to man. We even have a five foot display viking that we purchased from a toy store that didn't want him any more...of course, he is missing a horn...

I think this is hilarious. Made me smile anyway.

Funny, about that, Troy. The two events that seem to have captured the imagination of expat bloggers in the Münchosphere are the Euro Cup madness, and the naked bike ride. I wonder if it's because neither would happen in the USA?

P.S. Going to the American Stammtisch at the Hirschgarten Friday?

P.P.S. Still working on the brewery-restaurant question. I have a friend of a friend who works for Paulaner.
