Move Over Yogi Berra


Lukas Podolski is on the German national soccer team, and is one of the better offensive players in Europe, it is possible though, that he may not be the sharpest stick on the kabob rack. Then again, he might also be an incredibly gifted wordsmith that should be celebrated for his ability to craft a sentence such as this one.

“Fussball ist wie Schach, nur ohne Würfel.”

What, you don’t speak German? My apologies, translated it reads: “Soccer is like chess, only without the dice.”

How true. I can’t wait for the AFLAC commercials with Podolski.

For a couple more really of the really great quotes from German soccer players, check out this article in Der Spiegel. One of my other personal favorites is from former star player turned coach Franz Beckenbauer who famously said, “There is only one possibility: victory, defeat or a draw.”
