My mate Kevin and I went to see some fussball yesterday. Hertha Berlin vs. Hamburg. First live soccer game I’ve seen in about a year. Poor Hertha, bottom of the table, playing the top team; they go ahead after nine minutes and then self destruct: an own goal to equalise, and then two howling errors by the substitute keeper within the space of a minute, giving Hamburg a 3-1 victory. The Olympiastadion, though, is still a beautiful place to watch a game.
