  the excitement here is about to begin. Bavarians are mad that their hero Oliver Kahn is not starting Friday. vs Costa Rica. There is a 60 meter sign of him as you leave Munich Airport all the way across the autobahn into town.
Went to see Paraguay beat Bavarian XI at nice little stadium at Unterhaching on Saturday. 12,000 fans and festival atmosphere. 3-0 for Paraguay without Roque Santa Cruz but they will have problems beating Tobago never mind T & T. Bavaria still play predictable text book fussball and predictable as the weather forecast for Greenland in December.
Duke Univ arrive here in Rosenheim in 1 hour. Will play 1860 Rosenheim Wednesday evening. Dettmar Cramer just called me and he will be there.
Duke play her on Thursday vs Vladivostok, and in Salzburg Saturday vs Moscow Dynamo-who have 10 Brazilian & Portugese players so we hear.  Duke have tickets for USA vs Czech in Gelsenkirchen on Tuesday.
Showed some people the Olympic Stadion and park the other day, and 31 ConnallyStrasse where the Israelis were kidnapped by Yasser Arrafat's Black September Group. Well worth  a visit.
There is a soccafive indoor place at Olympia Park about $50.00 an hour to rent-5 pitches.
More later-The Duke Blue Devils bus just arrived.
