As we discussed yesterday, in America, Vince Lombardi called it the “Shit Bowl”; in Germany, it appears a “Losers Game” (as Germany will play in for Third Place at the World Cup today against Uruguay) is rather more charmingly known as going for the prize of the Goldene Ananas, or playing for the Golden Pineapple. Holt sie euch! (get it!) says the Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten.
Wouldn’t it, in fact, be awesome to see Sepp Blatter actually hand over a golden pineapple at the end of today’s game?
