WTF? Bayern Munich win a penalty in the Champions League final and they let a Dutchman take it! Didn't somebody tell them that Germans don't miss penalties?
Well somebody obviously forgot to tell Bastian Schweinsteiger. After allowing a Croat to take a penalty and duly miss, the Germans finally turned to the most German German in the history of Germany. Down he climbed from his Waffen SS Panza tank, his blue eyes gleaming, his blond hair close cropped in best military fashion. Up he goosestepped and...missed!
Incredible. I watched the game with a Spurs fan who complained afterwards that God must be an Arsenal fan if you can't even rely on Germans in a penalty shoot out to see Tottenham through to the Champions League! You really couldn't write it. And so much for German efficiency. They were hurriedly engraving Chelsea's name on the Cup when the game ended; that should have been done when Messi missed that penalty in Barcelona!
It must be pretty rough being a Spurs fan at the moment. Out of the Champions league and West Ham back in the Prem, but it would be even worse to be Greek. God help them when the Germans wake up tomorrow looking for somebody to give a damn good kicking!
