Long time no see/The Return of Hansi

Five years ago today was the last time Hansi walked out by Jogi’s side, five years  since Germany won the world cup. I could lie and say this was planned, that I left it until today to upload my new pictures of Hansi to make it that extra little bit perfect, but I won’t. It was a entirely a quirk of fate that happened, well that and endless procrastination. It’s not quite the return I wanted, for Hansi’s not returning to Jogi. Though the beginning of his new chapter with Bayern is a return of sorts for him, given that he played for Bayern and spent the better part of his short playing career there. Before the pictures of Hansi from Bayern’s first open training of the season, a sweet little reminder of that day:

Here it finally is, one year exactly since the World Cup final. 365 days since Mario Götze made history and became the first ever substitute to score a World cup winning goal. 365 days since the last time Hansi stood by Jogi’s side. In an interview he gave to a German newspaper, Joachim Löw said that he’s not doing anything World Cup related today, nothing special to mark today’s occasion. I’m not doing anything World Cup related either, nothing other than posting these posts which doesn’t count technically since all of the work was done before today. There are seven posts in total, which was of course deliberate. As is the way in which they are going to be posted, in lots of four. The first set at the time the match kicked off, the second at the end of the 90 minutes, the third at the approximate time the goal was scored and the fourth at the approximate time the match ended.

Random tangent, I can’t help but find it amusing that my first visitor today was from the Czech Republic. Amusing because they are one of the few teams to beat Germany in a qualifier under Joachim Löw’s command.

Despite not watching the final today or the even the goal, I have in other ways recreated that day. And not entirely intentionally, I can tell myself that I stayed up late because I did a year ago and I want everything to be just right.  But saying so does not make it true, in having stayed up so late I wasn’t recreating that all so special day. I was looking for videos of Hansi online. As it turns out YouTube is  a treasure trove of old matches and not just highlights either. I added three almost complete matches to my Hansi Flick collection. The day belonged to Hansi before it even really began, which just proves everyone’s point really. It’s the day of the World Cup final and instead of celebrating, I’m thinking about Hansi and looking for videos related to him. It’s not all about him, I did at least write some more of my latest Löw adventure, it’s not finished and it won’t be finished to be posted today. I think there’s more to the story and with the idea I’ve got to finish it, I think it will be worth the wait.
