Americans in Munich
My wife & I were at Oktoberfest in 2009.
By way of explanation, I took German at Brooklyn Tech more years ago than I care to remember. Any way, we were in the spirit, Kel was wearing a homemade dirndl and I wore lederhosen.
We were having a great time, eating lunch and drinking Spaten. the locals seemed to take to us more than to the Germans from the north.
After our second Krugmaß, I spotted a guy wearing a Boston Red Sox hat. Recognizing that the enemy was here, I said to Kel, "come here, you got to see this". We went over to the Sox fan and in my best German I asked if he were American, where he was from, usw.
After a few seconds, with a confused look he said that he didn't speak any German, whereupon I loudly exclaimed, "Red Sox Suck!!!" He said "you got me!" and we invited him and his wife over to our table to drink some beer. What a blast!
