So what are these rumors I’m hearing – Deisler retired? What happened?
i’m glad you’re finally back at home. how was your trip?
i haven’t spoken with basti, so can’t add anything to what you’ll find in newspapers. sad story, it’s good that “bayern” still leaves him an option to return if he reconsiders this decision. can’t say that i don’t understand him, but really it’s just sad.
so you’re alive, i assume rudi didn’t try to kill you on the spot?
Skimmed through articles. I remember how in 1998 they all were calling Sebastian the new hope of German football, and a new hope he was… With such an amazing talent, he could as well be one of the best players we’ve ever had.
No use in mourning, sadly it won’t help him, or our football for that matter. I’ll call him later, now I think he has more than enough problems to sort through without me barging in. I respect what Franz – or Uli, or both of them – are doing. But I don’t hold much hope that we will ever see him playing again, I’d be happy to be proven wrong here.
Our weekend was great, more than great actually. I told you we were going to Boston, but the plans changed and we ended up in New York, watching “Les Miserables” on Broadway, and I can’t even tell you how it all was… Oh well, if I try to write about these four days, it’ll turn out to be a mid-sized novel. So I’d better wait till I see you in person. You’ll probably have to listen to me rambling about impressions and places… Consider yourself warned :)

Oh, and about Rudi. No, he didn’t kill me, and I suspect that I’m still alive only because he didn’t have time to deal with me properly. So he just explained me what he thinks about my parentage and about people who are forgetting to tell their friends an important information, and the matter was closed.
i talked with franz today, he agrees with your assessment of sebastian’s chances.
so i’m eagerly waiting to hear about your adventures in new york, and don’t even think about backing off :)
olli just complained that you still owe everyone photos from world cup. what should I tell him?
>02.04 pm 16.01.2007<
Tell Olli that all good things are worth waiting for :)
And about photos – our neighbor yesterday painted his Land Rover with small red roses. For fun, he told me. I just don’t know what to say…

oh my… it looks like a big wedding cake on wheels!
>02.07 pm 16.01.2007<
Oh, and try to guess whom we did meet in New York? Lothar Matthaeus!
Can you imagine my surprise? Really, strange things happen sometimes. We chatted nicely, his wife is a good looking woman, I’d say.
>02.08 pm 16.01.2007<
Should I be offended with your remark about Americans? ;)
you’re speaking with matthäus? i’m surprised, honestly. didn’t he give you enough troubles already?
daniela is planning to visit her relatives, she’ll spend some days there.
i think you shouldn’t ;)
>02.18 pm 16.01.2007<
Debbie is going to take children to friends in Texas, and I was explicitly told that I’m not needed anywhere near Houston.
And Lothar is really not that bad. I know that you don’t like him, but… He can be unbearable sometimes, and I’ve had my share of fights with him over the years, but I have no problem speaking with him, honestly. You’re always to protective of me when it comes to Lothar :)
happy coincidence, i’d say…
re: matthäus. whatever you say. you know better here.
>02.29 pm 16.01.2007<
Happy indeed :)
You’re worrying too much, Jogi. Everything was alright, I swear.
And why are you still not in bed? It’s almost midnight already in Germany! You’re picking up some bad habits, my dearest :)
maybe because i’m chatting with someone who lives in america? ;)
>02.36 pm 16.01.2007<
Good night, Jogi :)
night. call me tomorrow?
