Actually, I would compare the football/soccer enthusiasm (and the media and political coverage non-the-less) to "bread and circus" (Brot und Spiel) from ancient Rome. Try getting 300.000+ people out in Berlin to protest anything meaningful... But for watching a football game with the beer flowing, you get that many no problemo.

I think it's disgusting (but must admit, that i did have a look every now and then).

ja, brot und spiele ...
es ist natürlich reiner zufall, dass die unpopulärsten politischen entscheidungen seit jahrzehnten gerade eben getroffen werden und zwar weitestgehend ohne das erfordernis der zustimmung eines bundespräsidenten, der da offenbar auch nicht mittun wollte.
in meinem politisch wachen freundeskreis wird schon gemutmaßt, dass frau m. extraprämien für das weiterkommen unserer elf ausgesetzt hat; andernfalls liefe man vielleicht gefahr, dass doch noch zur unrechten zeit jemand hin schaut.

I don't understand Eagleton at all, on this or any other issue.
