The first 4 Munich FIFA Worldcup 2006 games are settled

This evening I watched the Final draw TV show for the FIFA soccer worldcup 2006 Germany . I have never seen Heidi Klum looking so usual? But what is more interesting:
1. Its an easy group for the German team with Poland, Costa Rica and Ecuador and
2. These are the games in Munich in the preliminary round:

The preliminary round soccer games in Munich

June 9 2006
Germany – Costa Rica

June 14 2006
Tunisia–Saudi Arabia

June 18 2006

June 21 2006
Cote d’Ivoire-Serbia and Montenegro

Although I have lost already in the first drawing lottery probably more luck now:
The third sales phase for tickets for the 2006 FIFA World Cup starts on December 12, 2005, at 12 noon (CET). Approximately 300,000 tickets are expected to be available. The ticketing area at containing the order form will re-open at midday. Applications will be accepted until 15 January 2006. The ballot procedure used to allocate tickets in the first sales phase will in all likelihood be repeated. The order in which applications are received has no bearing on an applicant’s chances of success in the ballot.Further information soon on

The Shout out louds in Munich presenting

Saturday evening I probably visited my last live concert in 2005. The swedish guitar-rock band “Shout out louds” was performing in the famous Munich Atomic Cafe club. Intrduction also by a swedish group called “Nervous Nellie” presenting there debut album “don’t think feel”. It was a great evening and I was lucky getting one of the last tickets at the evening cashier, cause it was sold out quickly.

Following a review by Jim Harrington in “Live Daily”:
If every band tagged to be “The Next Big Thing” were to live up to that forecast, well, amphitheaters, arenas and stadiums around the country would be booked solid 365 days a year. Sadly for concert promoters, the vast majority of these acts fall well short of that prediction. The Shout Out Louds are one of the latest acts to wear the crown of hype. The Swedish quintet’s smartly articulate pop sound will surely attract more than its fair share of listeners, but probably not enough to make the indie-pop favorites a crossover smash.
However, there’s simply no getting around the fact that the Shout Out Louds’ glorious debut, “Howl Howl Gaff Gaff,” is an absolute scream. It’s wonderfully melodic and devilishly fun from start to finish. But what makes the album special is the variety of sounds that come from that scream. “Howl Howl Gaff Gaff” basically changes mood and feel with each new song.
The album kicks off with a driving slice of Weezer-esque emo-pop, “The Comeback,” and then rambles into anthem-friendly alt-rock with “Very Loud.” “A Track and a Train” is a cool piece of ’80s new wave rock that would have fit on “The Breakfast Club” soundtrack, and “Go Sadness” is pure lo-fi space rock.
The Shout Out Louds will probably never warrant the title of “The Next Big Thing.” Instead, the band will simply have to settle for being “The Next Good Thing.”

“Munich” by Steven Spielberg

Little advertisment about this new Spielberg movie, because its about a very sensitive and political issue. Spielberg renounced the usual advertisment and promotion tour. Movie start in germany on January 26th 2006. As movie fan living in Munich I have to see that….
IMDB short description:
The world was watching in 1972 as 11 Israeli athletes were murdered at the Munich Olympics. This is the story of what happened next.

Short trip to Las Vegas

For one week I will escape this frosty Munich weather. Just booked a flight to Las Vegas…. I will also rent a car and drive around in the dessert a little bit. That’s something I really like: USA, renting a car, sitting in and driving in this beautiful landscapes of the southwest. Just set up with Las Vegas weather as my browser startpage. What I also enjoy very much: planing the trip: booking flight and hotels, renting car, making my trip day to day schedule. Christiane remains at home. She doesn’t see any sense travelling for one single week from Europe to USA, especially not to Las Vegas. Sometimes a man must go his own way 🙂 . Of course I will miss her, because on our last vacation in USA in 2004 (4 weeks in Nevada, California, Arizona and Utah) we had a great time together.

During our january 2004 trip we visited Las Vegas: we enjoyed staying at the Flamingo Hotel .

I won a 2006 Soccer World Cup ticket

Unbelievable but true. Today I got an Email from the FIFA worldcup organisation that I had won in the ticket optionee programm, where I had participated last year in November. In the meantime I had lost in both ticket lotteries and had no hope left, to see a game live in the stadium. The first time after 32 years having the soccer world cup again in Germany this was very unlucky. So much the better getting this notification right now: The good thing: Its a soccer game here in munich in the new Allianz Arena in the best price category of 100 Euro. The bad news: Its only Tunisia against Saudi Arabia. But its better than Cote d’Ivoire against Serbia Montenegro (I hope).

If somebody desperately would like to see this game:
14th June 2006
location: Munich 18.00
game #16 Tunisia – Saudi Arabia
Price Category 1 (100,- Euro)

and has tickets for some other games like Italy, Germany, Brasil, Argentinia, Spain, … (I would say everything beside Tunisia and S.A.)
I am willing to exchange.

Email notification from FIFA
