from the fantastic patterns of dreams to the surrealistic behaving of reality

the simple game of chess

..still involved in the last stage of the World Cup (not that I'm interested in soccer generally)

So France today played the Semi-Finale against Portugal & kicked them out. - so it's a final matchup of blue - France's 'Les Bleus' vs. the Italian 'Azurri' (blue).

I watched the game & didn't know whether I should be more for the French or for the Portugesians, - because on one hand I liked the last games of the French vs. Spain & Brazil & the other hand I also would have liked the Portuguese to win, because I have since recently a Portugisean friend, who took me last week to the game Portugal vs. Holland (Netherlands) (I'll tell you later) -

So when France was leading with 1:0 I hoped till the end that Portugal would make a goal too - if it would have been the other way round I'd probably had hoped for the other side. - On the other hand: it's like playing chess against yourself - you just can't lose (or you just can't win) - (I heard that Iwan the Terrible (Ivan IV) prefered to play chess against himself - maybe because he didn't like to get defeated by others & well he died while playing chess against another person - probably he got an heart attack, cos he was about gettin' defeated)

Today when I was about t enter my workin place, the Italian neighbour the owner of a Pizzeria besides our Driving School came out & told me that someone in the night before had smashed his big shop window. - Well the whole story was, that in the evening before the guests of his Pizzeria - mainly Italians - had watched the game on his tv there. After the Italians had won they were still sitting at about midnight on the chairs & tables on the pavement in front of the Pizzeria, cheering & celebrating, that they were in the 'Finale'.

3 young, apparently drunk German guys, frustrated that the Germans had lost, got annoyed about the Italians cheering & one of them went mad & started to throw stones - the size of a fist - against the Pizzeria. - Luckily he didn't hit a person, but he hit the big window , which of course got a hole & a lot of cracks. -

Then he fled, while the Pizzeria owner & some of the Italians there tried to catch him & someone called the police of course. - The Pizzeria owner told me that he got hold of the committer, but then got kicked in the belly. He got him again & punched him in the face - & held him until the police came. - The other 2 guys escaped - but at least they got the one who threw the stones.

After the police had arrived the commiter began to lie & told the police, that the Italians had chased & beat him up without reason. - But there was another German who had watched it all from the other side of the street who came & witnessed that the version the Italians told was the right one.

Good that they got that foolish commiter. - In my minds eye throwing stones at people is an attempt to murder & now he has to pay the damage he has done (such a shop window is about 2.500,- Euro) & of course he'll get some other punishment too.

& please don't think this is a typical German situation - Germany has one of the lowest criminal rates worldwide, - but violent, stupid & fanatic people live all around the globe..

There was also a big stone lying in front of our shop window, but luckily had failed it.

Hmm - in tv you could after the games also see fans, frustrated, sad & even weeping after their country team had lost - if people react so emotional just for a stupid game, how will they react if something real happens to them? - Or is a game the only place where they can live out their emotions, where they can fulfill their longings to success which otherwise they're never able to reach? -

& please don't react like Ivan the Terrible who couldn't stand to lose a simple game..
