German Cup Final – From HALLE luja to Devastation

The ‘HALLE luja’ in the post title is a play on words.  The German cup final in held in the city of Halle.  Reaching the cup final has been a major club goal for at least the time I have spent there and so when we reached the cup final for the first time since it has been held there, we were so excited we shouted (figuratively) ‘Hallelujah!!’.  I think you can figure out the rest.

The ‘Devastation’ in the post title refers to the feeling after losing the match in five sets to great rivals VfB Friedrichsafen.  I’ve been lucky enough to take part in plenty of big matches but I don’t remember ever in my career having suffered such a devastating loss.  Perhaps the positive side of that is that I must have won most of those big matches to feel this loss so deeply.

When we reached the cup final, the club hired a film team to made a behind the scenes look at the lead up to the big match.  It has come out fantastically well. I have watched many of these kinds of things before and this ranks with the best.  If you love sport, watch this.
