Through the Looking Glass
“ I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. ”

Bastian: Let’s show it to Mehmet.
Interviewer: We are here live as Lukas Podolski arrives with the cup.
Bastian & Lukas: showing off the cup and mocking Mehmet Scholl
Interviewer: Congratulations, you are world champions. Do you have to get your head around that first?
Basti: Yeah, right now we can’t do that. We enjoy the moment. It’s unbelievable. Thanks to everyone in Germany for the support. We felt how you had our backs. And today will be celebrated everywhere. Luki, we are going to party hard tonight huh?
Lukas: Of course. I already told him on the field, 10 years ago we left the U21 team and drove to the A-team by car and now 10 years later we stand here and have that thing. Amazing, that’s the reason you play football for.
Interviewer: And today, the kiss on the field.
Lukas: Yeah, the kiss on the field, the revenge (???). And yeah, that’s the reason you play football for. Thanks to all the people, the fans. We are a great team and it’s just fun to play here and now we achieved the thing that we worked for.
Interviewer: All of you always look at the bottom of the cup… is there something special? Oh let’s have a look. There are the former World Champions engraved and now Germany will be added one more time.
Bastian, your wound is bleeding again. It was more than a tough game. How was it especially for you in Extra Time. You got your fair share of fouls right?
Bastian: Yes, but that’s a part of it. You have to fight through that, you don’t often play a game like that in your life and even though you have cramps or get fouled you have to keep going. And that’s what not only I did but every one of us. Unbelievable effort. But how the boys from the bench were in it… I’ve never seen something like that. That gives you so much power and that’s the reason we won that cup.
Interviewer: When Sami Khedira couldn’t play did you tell yourself that you have to step up even more now?
Bastian: No, Christoph did a great job. He didn’t play very long…
Interviewer: Let’s get Christoph Kramer as well. Congratulations to you as well.
Christoph: Thank you.
Bastian & Lukas: most likely some moking in Christoph’s direction
Interviewer: You did a great job until you got that hit in the face. After that you were feeling dizzy or…
Lukas: He already got hit in the face by a ball during training. He was already off then… And later a second time…
Christoph: I can’t remember much but whatever.
Interviewer: But you remember the trophy ceremony?
Christoph: Yeah, that I can remember.
Lukas: neighs like a horse
Christoph neighs back
Bastian: Can I say hello to someone?
Interviewer: Of course.
Lukas: No, dude.
Bastian: Come on, here. To my parents and my brother. You are the most important. And best wishes to Munich. Party hard tonight. Gärtnerplatz. Glockenbachviertel. And also…
Lukas: That’s not in Munich anymore.
Bastian: Of course it is.. and also…
Lukas: Best wishes to Cologne. Celebrate. Take Cologne apart.
Interviewer: Christoph, do you want to say hello to Solingen?
Christoph: No, I need to send love to my grandma.
Lukas: OH MY GOD.
Christoph: Yes, because… because it’s her birthday today and I couldn’t reach her earlier because she probably already went to bed. So, happy belated birthday to you, granny.
Bastian: And a very special greeting to a man without whom we wouldn’t be here today. That’s Uli Hoeneß. Thank you for your support. And we believe that everything ends well and we support you. Honestly, thank you.
Bastian: Scholli!!! Come on, show it to Scholli again.
Bastian & Lukas: same Scholl mocking as before
Do you ever get like super vulnerable late at night that you just want to spill your heart out and say how you feel because you’ve been holding it in for so long and you just need some ventilation and there’s just something about two in the morning that makes me lose my filter and say the things I would never have the guts to say when the sun is up.
the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can’t say tomorrow day
