Four years ago I wrote a post about Euro Cup 2012. I have been thinking about that post this week as the Euro Cup 2016 is now being contested.
Here in Jena they have a Public Viewing Arena set up where you can watch the games each evening.
There are indications all over the place that a major football event is taking place. This banner was in one of the shopping malls and is one of those thing where you can stand behind it and have your face in the body of someone else.
Of course the support here is mostly for Deutschland or Germany.
I had a quiet meal in the restaurant just down the street to the right that didn’t have the game on. Thanks Restauration Stilbruch.
The office is also Euro Cup mad. There are brackets and results posted up on bulletin boards and it is a common subject of conversation during breaks from class. Especially since we always have students from many different countries attending course.
I am not teaching a course, but am working on training development. It has been a very productive week and would be even more so if I could kick the jet lag.
So, it is off to bed.
Who will win the Euro Cup?
p.s. The Copa America 2016 Cup is in progress back in the US. Do you even know that it is going on?
