Why Bayern Munich? I asked.
“I love Bayern.”
He was sitting on a bench with two friends, a cup of Tim Hortons’ coffee in his hand. It looked as if this is his daily routine but Mohammed came to Montreal, from Jordan, only two days ago. He will be studying engineering at the Concordia University. That Tim Hortons’ might have been his first ever, I thought. I remember my first and it tasted awful. One gets used to it though. He has never lived in Germany but he didn’t feel that his support for Bayern needs any justification, or obvious links I was inquiring about. He simply loves the club. Mohammed tells me how everyone in Jordan is crazy about football. Just like me and most of my friends, I thought.
