the night before

I still can’t sleep the night before Germany plays. Today it’s against Poland. Last night, I was wondering through the apartment at four in the morning, wondering whether our defense will hold up today. Never had a kid before, but my world cup anxiety has to be at least comparable to the whole debacle.

Right around three AM, I started to worry about both our forwards being born in Poland and then coming to Germany at a very young age. That might jinx things. I say, let my favorite player, Gerald Asamoah, play instead. He was born in Ghana.
