I, like all other German supporters right now, feel the need to establish that there was loyalty from the beginning.
But my loyalty, I must confess, was of the blind kind. See, I knew very little about soccer and even less about the actual German team. That didn’t matter though.
All that mattered was that I now shared life with a man whose surname was symbolic of both the German flag and the German number 13 player, Michael Ballack. How could I not be loyal?
And for once blind loyalty paid off!
What makes this win especially significant for the Ballacks is that tomorrow we lay one of its dearest members to rest. We #missyougrannyflo!
