The soccer WM is a big event, of course. To imagine that actually sportsmen from all over the world, even if they might be enemies, are running to kick one ball over the greens of German stadions is anyhow fascinating, isn?t it? Especially that it could be organized that the fans of the teams meet another and can celebrate outside the stadions on public places watching the games on large screens staying peaceful almost every time. Imagine, German TV reported about an today?s event on the Street of 17th June in Berlin with more than 700 thousand guests and only 70 insertions of rescue-services. That is great, isn?t it? Although not as big as in Berlin, in many German towns are events with big screens at least if the German team plays and in the cities, where the games will be played, during every game the fans can follow the games at a large screen.
But there are still other happenings. For example, this afternoon, when I went home by my car from work at 16.30 o?clock and the German team played there was enormous less traffic in the streets. And the car parks at the shops were empty. Do you notice any similar happenings, when your national soccer team plays? Or at which events do you experience similar happenings?
