Do you Believe in Magic?

You have been transformed into a mystical being who has the ability to do magic. Describe your new abilities in detail. How will you use your new skills?

Last night in my dream I had magic powers, I disarmed nine referees who had knives and were attacking me, despite the fact that I was unarmed. What’s magical about that you may ask, well how about the fact that instead of taking the knives off them I made them disappear. That is I made the knives disappear, not the referees. Why I was dreaming about being attacked by referees is another question entirely. After the game yesterday it should surely be the other way around. A hand of god type goal being the reason for any anger I may feel towards them. It’s not my team the decision went against but I still care. Firstly because justice was not done, secondly it was one of Hansi’s teams and most importantly of all the decision went in favour of H96 and whoever they play against, I root for. This is the offense in question:

To be able to make myself invisible, to be able to teleport from one place to another, to be able to see everything, to read minds. And one very important thing, to actually be able to interact with my surroundings whilst invisible. That would be funny, imagine if you could do that. Stand on the goal line and prevent that ball from going on. Imagine the look on Andreasen’s face as he tries to work it out. I wouldn’t feel bad about doing that, about cheating the cheater.

Another ability which would be awesome would be to be able to go back in time and see certain scenes you wish to witness. It would be like having your very own collection of Löw highlights.

But it’s not for that kind of gain I would use my powers for. Sure with them you could make sure Freiburg win every game from now until the end of time. But I never would do such a thing. An unearned victory is not one worth having, nor is it much fun to see. With those powers you could also rob banks or do other such things which are equally nefarious. None of which I’m interested in. All I want to do is to be able to see in person all those funny and sweet Jogi & Hansi moments. Not to mention Christian Streich and Thomas Tuchel. More than anything I’d love to be standing in earshot for these two moments, I would love to hear what they’re saying, what’s so funny that makes Hansi laugh that way:
