Every once in a while I have to express my enthusiam or frustration about my oh so favorite soccer team. Schalke 04
Since birth, these guys have played two good seasons. Once they won the UEFA Cup and once they almost won the league championship. Otherwise, I really can’t say that my team is one of Europe’s (or even Germany’s) better teams. But this year might be different. Since my recent visit to Germany (watching 3 of their games live), the team has won 8 out of 9 games. They are advancing in Europe’s UEFA Cup as well as the German Cup Series. And they are second in the league. A grand year for a very, very proud Schalke fan. Who by the way, is sitting at Starbucks near the nation’s capital with tears in his eyes. I just got the scores in of Schalke’s latest victory. 2:1 against Bielefeld.
Plus, my mum just ran her 4th half marathon. This time in an astonishing 2 hours and 19 seconds. Next, she’ll either break the 2 hour mark or just run a full marathon after all. Nice work mum.
