“It would be unfair of us not saying thank you once you did it as well. Thank you so much for this past month in Brazil. From Santa Cruz Cabrália to Rio de Janeiro. Thank you for your professionalism, humility and for your modesty. Thank you for Podolski’s charisma, the most Brazilian German in the world. Thank you for the 7:1 because it was a lesson to our own arrogance. Arrogance you didn’t show back in 2002. You accepted your defeat and worked hard to be on top again. It wasn’t luck. At all. Our people did the best they could to welcome you in the best way possible and I believe we made it. We just didn’t expect you to be this terrific to us. The picture above is the one I believe to be the most symbolic of your stay here: Podolski hugging a local child, from the Civic School of Cabrália, who they’ll continue to be assisting until 2018. Another “golaço” they have scored around here. That child’s hug represents the hug that 200 million Brazilians would like to give every single one of you right now. Once again, it would be unfair of us letting you go without saying thank you. Obrigado! Or even better, Dankeschön!”– Brazilian sports page thank the Germans. [x]
i wish non brazilians could understand the impact that this team had on our country. im overwhelmed. im couldnt describe it. thank you to all the germany federation and the fans. i cant believe i actually watched one of their matches, wow
that photo of Seb’s smitten look at Kimi might have broken loads of Sebson shippers’ hearts…
Which one? This one?
Or this one?
Maybe this one…
Ahh, you probably meant this one…
but yeah… I totally see your point.
it’s how he’s coping with the loss of his other Finn :P
OMFG I hadn’t seen that third pic before and I’m dying now and heikki omg

Kimi was there
Seb and Heikki
even knew each other.
Kimi still is

Seb’s number one Finn!
Erm, what about Tommi?
He has already given his blessing to Seb&Kimi XD
"I know that Sebastian is happy over Kimi’s return. They were already familiar to each other and I believe that two champions will give each other additional heartbeat." - Tommi Pärmäkoski.
"Do you not talk about these things when you two meet in Switzerland?
We do not talk about racing. If we see each other out of the races, there are much nicer things to do (smiles). Talking about driving on the track is enough.” - Sebastian Vettel
The cognitive dissonance caused by a society that tells its children to “follow their dreams” through messages in films, literature, etc. and then punishes them for not choosing safe, money making careers in adulthood is fascinating, to say the least.
