Alright I’ve already written about the train to Denmark, but I need to take step back because I forgot to mention our day before that. Actually I have no idea what order I am going to post this stuff in so this may actually come first.. details…
The train didn’t leave until 715pm and we able to pry ourselves out of bed at a reasonable 915am. This was reasonable given our exploits from the night before and the fact that check out was at 10. After a quick shower we changed into clothes we would be wearing for the next 31ish hours (I don’t think I even took my shoes off during that time in case I needed to pull a Steven Seagal and go Under Siege 2 on somebody on the train) and we shuffled out to find something to do for our last day in Munich.
Munich has two soccer teams. TSV 1860 which is the local club… maybe the equivalent of a AAA baseball team (?) and FC Bayern (Bavaria) which is the team EVERYBODY likes… erm, supports… whatever…
- We saw TSC 1860.
- There mascot is a lion.
- This is because lions are the symbol of Munich.
- This is because Arch Some Dude The Lion founded it or something.
- This is a recurring theme in most European cities.
- I suspect this is because being known as Chief Guy The Chicken isn’t very awesome.
1860 Munchen (colloquially) won the game… er, match… 3-0 and fun was had by all. We got to yell GOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL with the home crowd (which is probably a lot better than the away crowd…) twice. “Why only twice?” you ask, “Didn’t they score 3 times?” you go on.
Allianz Stadium, home of both 1860 Munchen and FC Bayern, has a supply and demand problem. 15 minutes into the game.. er, match, there were still upwards of 5000 people trying to get in.
- There were a total of 4 ticket agents working.
- In the 30 minutes it took me to get tickets they served probably 100 people.
- I was standing in the sun the whole time.
- Remember, I would have this shirt on for another 27ish hours.
Next stop: Copenhagen (hint: we’ve already left Copenhagen… I really need to find some internet… I’m falling behind…)
