exsequar: ([WorldCup] Schweini bright side)
BAYERN WON YESTERDAAAAAY! On a literally last gasp (91st minute!) goal by Daniel van Buyten, of all people, but my boys fought and fought and deserved to come away with the win. Thank god, because we REALLY needed those damn points. It still wasn't very good for my heart - Lahm is playing atrociously, and I NEVER thought I would say that (and okay, he's playing fine, but for his normal standards? ATROCIOUS). And most horrible of all, Ribéry was supported off the field crying and yelling in agony - he'll be out for at least 4 weeks, possibly longer. :((( We... uh, kind of need him, especially without Robben. So THAT sucks. But we came away with the points and I'm clinging to that.

So in celebration, I bring picspam!

The ever lovely [livejournal.com profile] munkykiss messaged me on Twitter and was all, godammit, FINE, show me Germans! And I was all :D! :D! OKAY I WILL SHOW YOU MANY MANY ADORABLE WONDROUS GERMANS AND YOU WILL LOOOOVE THEM! :D! :D! I think I frightened her a little. But I promised to deliver, and even though this is much later than I planned, I COME BEARING GERMANS! In GIF form, specifically. Please see this huge post for a picspam of WC2010 - so much epic. <333 But for now, I was specifically asked for gifs, so here they are! Warning: THIS HAS A LOT OF GIFS. Do not enter unless you have GOOD internet and your computer won't die. Consider yourselves warned!

THIS IS ARNE FRIEDRICH. He is darling and beautiful and smiley and has Herbal Essences hair.

I call him THE HUG MONSTER. <33

Happiest hug of all time ever omg. Arne and Per Mertesacker, our anchors in defense. LOVE.

BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER IS MAD. But also wet. And gorgeous. :D

Lol oh honey. (But also unf.)

Loldancing. <333 And I figure this is a good time to whip out one of the best videos of Die Nationalmannschaft - the making of Die Spieler! Die Spieler is a photography book comprised of 200 enormous glossy photos of our boys in beautiful Strenesse suits and includes pillow fights, cake throwing, tug of war, and pool frolicking. Um. IT'S PRETTY MUCH PERFECTION. (Best $50 I ever spent, cough.) And you can see it all in this here video!

Basti in just the armband (well, also shorts, damn ;)) makes my brain shortcircuit. Unfortunately there's only one surviving photo of this glorious occasion. :((((

This file is named "basti over Crispy" and it makes me lol EVERY TIME.

Basti with his GORGEOUS model girlfriend, Sarah, aka Queen Sarah because she is made of class and sweetness. I want them to get married and make little blonde babies. <3333



I have no idea what they're loling about but it's supah cute.

Basti driving an Audi! I just enjoy him in civvies. <3

Basti has a MAJOR penchant for removing his shirt and giving it to other people, and I WHOLEHEARTEDLY ENDORSE THIS PRACTICE.

Ahahaha I just... ♥

Goal celebrating shirt removal!! :DDD This was after he scored his THIRD goal against Portugal in the third place match in WC2006. Technically one was an own goal, deflected off a free kick, but basically that game was a one man show. FUSSBALLGOTT <33

This is one of those aforementioned goals ripping apart Portugal. IT'S SO HOTASS. *____*

He just brightens my life.

Next up...

LU-LU-LUKAS PODOLSKI! Dancing like a dork! <333

His dorky little laugh is the moast cute.

POLISH BROS OF LOVE AND JOY! *___* One of Germany's other star strikers, Miroslav Klose, is Polish, like Poldi himself, and they are VERY fond of one another. Poldi even carries Miro away so no one can have him! *g*

Poldi also loves his presh little kapitän! THIS GIF IS MY MOST FAVORITE.


O hai!

Bein adorbs with small childrens!

When you combine the two, Basti and Poldi, you get - well, perfection.

Poldi missed a PK against Serbia (;___;) and Basti was IMMEDIATELY there to talk him out of completely shutting down, mentally. They're amazing. *__*

Unf FOREVER. Why are there not a million pictures of this?!?

Awesome on the field too!

Yes, that's exactly what I randomly do to my friends in airports. LOL

Poor interviewers. *g*

Chatting and flirting even while playing on opposing teams, aww.

This is right after Basti snuck into Poldi's hotel room and woke him up by jumping on him. On camera.

Like this.

Yes there's video.

Make sure you keep watching after because it turns into the most awesome, badass music video of Poldi and Basti in WC2006.

Basti's always there to brighten Poldi's day :D

Eeeee twirly delight <3

Now a special section for one of the hottest Germans - this is René Adler. He's a total BAMF goalie who got Germany through the WC2010 qualifiers but broke a rib right before the tournament and couldn't play. :(

He's really really hot, and here's some shirtless Mario Gomez for you Blanca!

Oh hai beautiful.


And of course he's a classy boy with his little tea cup. If you desire to know more of the Adler, just ask. :D

BOWLING FOR GERMANS! Best celebration ever!

Hugs hugs hugs hugs hugs. This is just after beating England this June. \o/

\o/ \o/

Oh Gomez! This is his response to Basti in formalwear, not even lying. Here, have another video... super adorbs, and includes Basti declaring 'Zis is fashion!'

Ahahaha. I love Südafrika for providing us with many ridic videos of our boys dancing because the South Africans would sing songs for them after practice! This is Basti with Holger Badstuber, one of our defenders.

Even our coaches, Jogi and Hansi, are suuuuper adorbs.


And we'll finish out with my very favorite little German (well... second favorite, after that Bastian fellow up there). PHILIPP LAHM. Mini fussballer extraordinaire (he's 5'6"!) and one of the best fullbacks in the entire world. He's the only player to be nominated to both the WC2006 and 2010 All Star teams. :D He was also the captain of Germany at WC2010 in the absence of Michael Ballack, thus becoming the youngest captain of a German World Cup team ever! (He's 26)

One of the reasons he's my favorite is because he's an attacking defender, and it's gorgeous. Here he is scoring the FIRST GOAL of the 2006 World Cup in Germany, like a total boss. <333

His team LOVES him and LOVES hugging him. He's the perfect height!

An adorable celebration for another, even more important goal he scored - a last gasp winning goal over Turkey in the semifinal of the EURO 2008. HE'S SUCH A BAMF.

Lahm and Arne have a sweet thing goin on - they just love to hug. :D

They also like to give the most adorable interviews EVAH.

The adorable really starts at 1:10.

Arne: Hello, I’m welcoming Philipp Lahm in the team hotel one day after the game against turkey. Philipp, it was a great game. Congratulations for your goal and win.
Philipp: Thank you.
Arne: I’d like to know, what were your feelings after making that Goal?
Philipp: Just joy. It was just before the end and you know how it is. You’re just happy and all the joy comes out and you did see that through all our cheering.
Arne: Well I don’t know how it feels to shoot a goal for the national team therefore… It’s ok. The elation is huge in Germany and the fans are glad. We’re mutually overjoyed. The next game lies ahead of us. We’ll probably play against Spain or maybe Russia. It’s not certain yet. Which team would you prefer?
Philipp: Both are difficult. It’s the final. There are no easy opponents anymore. That’s why if we can give our best performance with 100% we’ll win. Whoever will come. But it won’t be easy. You could see that against the Turkey yesterday. You had to give it your best until the very end. Yesterday we came off as the winners and now I’m hoping that we’ll get the title on Sunday.
Arne: Recently I saw something on television. In fact that as a young lad (Note: “Bub” is a typical Bavarian phrase) you were very shy and that you had to play a tree in a school’s play. Is that correct?
Philipp: Those are rumours. I don’t want to comment on those.
Arne: I’ve got them from a reliable source. Your mother told me about it. You don’t want to say anything about it?
Philipp: No comment.
Arne: How is it going with table tennis?
Philipp: No comment.

Arne: Alright! Thank you for this great interview. Keep it up, yes?
Philipp: Likewise.

Seriously, these two are beyond adorable. ♥

Lahm also occasionally acts the age he looks and gets REALLY EXCITED about free pizza.


And there you have it! A highly biased selection of my darling, beautiful Germans being cute and badass and hugging each other a lot. :D I hope you enjoyed!
Mood:: 'tired' tired
