The World Cup 2006 and Oliver Kahn

Posted on: June 8, 2006

Changing of the guards. Yes, Oliver Kahn is currently choice number 2 for goalkeeper duty for Team Germany. All eyes will be on Jens Lehmann who is an archrival. But this in no way diminishes Kahn's accomplishments. It is such a thrill to watch him play. I sat glued to the tv set when it was Germany vs Brazil in 2002. The German robotic style of playing versus the finesse of the Brazilians, as a colleague puts it. Whatever. I will make plans to watch the World Cup when I can, where I can. A lot of new teams to watch out for, apart from the favorites.

Oh geez, I’m no football fan. Let’s just talk about the NBA Finals, here. 😉

It will be fun talking about both.. and I like football better than basketball. Now. 😛
