Slamball is a new sport being promoted. It is kind of a combination of basketball with trampolins and full contact as in American football. I wouldnt want to try it myself but looks like fun to watch.
Yesterday the Stuttgart soccer team (VfB Stuttgart) became German champion. Stuttgart turned into a big party house with 200.000 people. this even topped the party time we had at the worldcup last year.
Like the worldcup changed a bit the image of the serious Germans in the world, this gives some new impressions of the “grumpy” Swabians.
Obviously this means there will be some champions league matches in Stuttgart next season – an opportunity to come over and visit Stuttgart and get a first hand impression of how Germany is nowadays.
As a side note: while Karlsruhe made it into the first league (1. Bundesliga), Freiburg was not successful. So there will be only one team from Baden (as in Baden-Wuerttemberg).
