Bayern Munich. Mario and Samuel. Sherbrooke/Décarie, Montreal, 2011

Why Bayern? I asked, astounded.

“Because of Ribéry, he’s our favourite player.”

I was some 50m behind them when I notice two large number 7 walking away. The whole street was shiny red. I increased my walking speed thinking of the best way to approach them, to make sure they agree to be photographed. I can’t miss this opportunity, I thought. But suddenly they stopped and started getting into the car. I had to run and by the time I managed to catch up one already had his seatbelt fastened and the other was just getting in. Mario and Samuel, father and son, were very kind to step out and pose for me. They are locals but their love of Ribéry made them Bayern Munich fans. Whatever happened to sons rebelling against their fathers and supporting the rival team?

One thought on “BAYER MUNICH, MARIO and SAMUEL

  1. For me, Ribéry deserves the Golden Ball but this calls for careful thought.
    At first sight, it will be difficult for him because Lionel Messi, the Argentinian prodigy, puts up the frightening statistics this year: 38 goals and 12 decisive passes in the championship of Spain with Fc Barcelona this season. It’s enormous! It would be to tell that Ribéry doesn’t stand a chance facing Messi but with a bit of luck he cans it win nevertheless. Come on Franck!
