With Only Four More Days Until the World Cup, Teams Arrive in Style
Are you ready for some football?! Oopswrong sport, unless you're into calling soccer by the better-known name of "football," and then you better be ready, because the World Cup 2010 hype is reaching a peak as teams arrive to Johannesburg, South Africa. They're getting kitted-up for the start of the games on June 11. That's only four days away!
Arriving in style this morning was Germany's team, as they flew in on Lufthansa's first A380, a super group onboard a superjumbo. Of course a double-decker plane has more than enough room for the players, and so their mighty entourage included everyone from their currywurst-loving top chef Holger Stromberg to the player's family members and airline top brass.
As we discovered last month when we hopped on the official first flight of Lufthansa's A380, the airline has introduced a summer menu for flights out of Germany, featuring South African specialties alongside the typical German offerings.
All in all, it sounds like the German team is having a far better start to the World Cup than the England team, since the only big noteworthy bit of the Britons' arrival is that their coach will be spying on them via special TVs in their hotel rooms! We'll take a fancy plane over that, thanks.
