Bayern game

One of the few perks of having a husband that travels a lot is that he gets special ways to enjoy his free time. My in laws came to town and we were able to show them our new car and then go to the Bayern Munich game. We had terrific seats on the field courtesy of Lufthansa.

The game was exciting and they expectantly won against the Wolfsburg Wolves with a score of 4:2. The beginning of the game was a bit intense, but Bayern came back.

The fan section was right near us and it reminded me of the college basketball games at my university. The people were very rowdy and added to the spirit. I was surprised how small many of the players are. Stefan pointed one out that was the same height as he is and he looked massive compared to everyone else.

You'll have to go to one - they are a lot of fun. It's amazing how much pride and spirit people get in supporting their favorite teams.

One of the most interesting things to me at German soccer games is the energy of the crowd. Nothing compares to that energy here in the States. Sounds like you guys had an awesome time. Plus, it must have been even cooler going to the game now that you and Stefan have had their private tour :)

You're definitely right - it's like every single US sport's team spirit rolled into one. I can't believe how much things come to a halt for the games.
