…but for a good reason, people are jumping up & down because their team did win the Woman’s Soccer World Cup! And even if they would have been just most lucky (a lot of Germans go green with envy because Japan did kick our team out of the semi finals, rather bad manners for a host), they deserve this little luck.
Which was no, but a happy moment, they have worked hard on it. The refugees of Fukushima can’t live in the trophy, but it’s a symbol not to give up. Most important, because 3/11 did drive even the hardboild Japanese into desperation. BTW, my partner here will bite his own ass now. Japan had a match in our hometown (which has two sister cities in Japan) and I suggested that he could give 23 Namazu shirts as a welcome gift to the team. A good and legitimate promotion for his shop, they would have said „Domo arigato!“ for sure. Now imagine the impact of dropping his name now that they are champions, not only the local media would ask for interviews. Bang, the whole world would know „The champion wears Analogwerk!“. Sorry Tobi, but… I’m so Three-Thousand-and-Eight You so Two-Thousand-and-Late. When will people ever listen to me? I really have the 6th sense, I see golden opportunities… EVERYWHERE!
