Madness in Berlin – Germany 3 Portugal 1

No sleep for a while tonight. Berlin is one big honking car horn wrapped in red, orange and black. I’m glad for the Germans, they deserve something to celebrate and celebrating they are. The area around the hotel is choked with street parties. I’ve seen San Francisco after the 49ers won a SuperBowl, Boston after the World Series, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins — but nothing compares to this. I can only imagine the scene at the Brandenberg Gate where an estimated 1 million showed up to watch the game on the Jumbotrons. Tomorrow night should be an epic party.
Had dinner at an amazing exotic car “museum” where everything was for sale. Some serious four-wheeled bling. Got to meet Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo, which was nice.

My favorite car was this three-wheeled Messerschmitt. There was a can of oil in the door pocket, leading me to believe it was a two-stroke.

The bus back to the hotel from the dinner got completely grid-locked in the post-game insanity. Finally the driver gave up and let us walk.
