hey xphilx

are you a big bundesliga fan?
I used to follow it quite a bit but now it seems that all the coverage here is on the EPL

I still cheer for Germany at Euro and the World Cup

i'm not a "fan" but i follow the bundesliga and show support for my hometeam and teams which are playing good and offensive soccer like dortmund or bremen.

i also would like to follow the epl more often. too often i simply forget about it.

where is your hometown?

my wife has family in Koblenz. We visited there about 10 years ago. Definitely time to go back again!

my hometown is hanover. the team is hannover 96, they will place 11th or 12th this season. pretty unspectacular but they had a lot of bad luck this year. at least their goal keeper is the goal keeper for the german national team. robert enke, you maybe heard about him..?!

Never gave a crap about sports, at all, but I am a recent convert. Started watching soccer off and on last summer. Now I catch whatever I can without having to pay for premium channels. They don't show enough on free tv here, aside from the occasional (maybe once a week if we're lucky) Premier League or UEFA match. :(
I still don't really know the rules or understand what's going on most of the time, but it's fun to watch regardless.

I grew up playing and it remains my favourite sport but it's getting tougher to play now (injuries)
I agree about the free TV thing.... we get mainly EPL and usually not the good games either...
Won't take too long to get the gist of the rules.. I can't wait to get overseas to see a game in person. Looks like an incredible experience

I played when I was 8, but didn't really enjoy it and switched to baseball.

You didn't miss much. :)

Man U didn't show up other than for the first ten minutes.

Actually, I'll think you'll find he was talking about the Champions League, unless there's a seven day delay in showing football matches in Canada. :roll:

JW's post was Wednesday 27th May, 'right now'.

Champions League Final was yesterday, Wednesday 27th May.

UEFA Cup Final was last week, Wednesday 20th May.

The Champions League is also a UEFA competition.
