Native German speakers (particularly my brother-in-law) may skewer me for the woeful grammar in this post title (how is that pronounced with double umlauts anyway?) but Arsenal supporters everywhere are behaving with joyful, reckless abandon since the club signed German midfielder, Mesut Özil.
Following a panic-filled, anxiety-wrought transfer season that had some threatening seppuku, murder or worse, Arsenal fans now have a bit of a spring in their step.
To experience that newfound joy firsthand, join the Bay Area Gooners this Saturday at Maggie McGarry’s in North Beach for Sunderland AFC v Arsenal FC. Kickoff is 7AM and despite the hour, it should be a festive atmosphere. Blame it on Özil.
