Soccer

Soccer is by far the most popular German sport. It is so popular there is a group of statues of soccer players in the center of a nearby round-a-bout. Everybody plays soccer. The kids play it at the end of their tennis lessons. They have a huge tennis ball which they use as a soccer ball.

Two years ago during a World Cup soccer match we had an interesting experience. My husband was watching the game (Germany was playing). We heard all sorts of cheers and shouting from houses in all directions. About 30 seconds later Germany scored. Our German neighbors were watching the game on German television, while my husband was watching on American television with a short time delay. From then on he knew when he really needed to pay attention.
