Summer Vacation


summer 2010

The last few days of June are said to be indicative for the summer that comes. This would suggest a long and pleasant summer, except for people who dislike heatwaves.

Yesterday felt like summer. The vacation started on Thursday, and I started realizing it when fencing a paddock with an informal cooperative building society and listening to live coverage of how the German team, plus linesman Mauricio Espinosa and referee Jorge Larrionda (to keep to the complete story), kept the English on the wrong foot.

I grew up with radio, rather than television, coverage of soccer games. A good radio reporter can frequently tell you a goal before it is actually scored, just by using his or her voice. Sabine Töpperwien and Edgar Endres who covered yesterday’s knockout game are reporters of that category. Being a radio reporter is probably much more demanding than commenting pictures.
