I study pedagogy by day, work in a cinema by night, and love to spoil my godchild rotten anytime.

I love Harry Potter and football (FC Bayern München is my club); I enjoy Monty Python, Seeed, My Chemical Romance, Rick Mercer, and The Mighty Boosh.
I don't like sexism, Canada's lack of competent politicians, Severus Snape, and especially how North America treats Native Americans.

                Hermann Gerland remembers perfectly the conversation he had with his wife. In almost two decades as Bayern Munich’s youth coaching guru, Gerland - known as “Der Tiger” - has seen dozens of players come through, but this one stands out. The prodigy in question was 17. He was a small, slight boy. Gerland thought he had a potential world-beater on his hands, a once-in-a-generation talent, but nobody else quite saw it that way. "He had no chance in the first team," he said. "Nobody thought he would make it." The doubts played on Gerland’s mind. He could not make the others understand. He recalled, “My wife said that maybe I was wrong, that maybe if everybody said he was not good enough, then maybe…” He did not finish his sentence. Maybe, she meant, he just was not good enough. But Gerland was not willing to contemplate the possibility. "I told her that if he did not play for Bayern, I would throw in my licence and go and coach water polo," he said.

                It is a little more than 12 years since Gerland went to war for Lahm. Even Gerland must be surprised just how spectacularly he has been proven right. Lahm is captain of Bayern. He has led them to titles and to the Champions League. Few would debate he is the finest fullback in the world. You could even make a case that he might also be the best midfielder in the world, such as Bayern manager Pep Guardiola has hailed Lahm as the most intelligent player he has ever encountered.
