Germany v. Costa Rica is underway and there have been 3 goals in the first 17 minutes.
The Big Lead points us to a NY Post story about the US Men's Team checking out the prostitutes in Hamburg, Germany. These women-of-the-night are apparently not that attractive and are flocking to Germany to meet the World Cup demand for sex.
From experience, not with prostitutes, but with living in Germany, I know that Germany has very loose laws for this industry. Just around the corner from my apartment in Berlin were two "massage parlors" with pornographic advertising in the windows. I assumed these weren't the normal spas that women go to. And, I used to ride the streetcar back to my apartment and would see women on the street wearing only heels, hose, thongs, and bustiers while holding an umbrella in 30 degree weather on Oranienburger Strasse. I was amazed by their toughness. I know I wouldn't be out in the Berlin winter with that little clothing on. Anyway, I suppose that these women will be quite busy for the next month. Just look at Windsor, Ontario, which was just across the border from Detroit, the host of this year's Super Bowl.
