My first memory of matchday in Paris back in 1998 when we played Germany is of all the drunk Germans I saw kicking bottles and staggering outside the stadium as I approached. My second memory is of walking out to my seats and witnessing the mass unfurling of banners for teams like TSV 1860 and Schalke. I was a relative newbie back then so it was an incredible sight for me. This time around I am bringing two banners to hang. The first is the Bruce Arena one depicted here. The second is one that we made in a garage with a canvas paint tarp, masking tape, and a couple cans of spray paint. It reads, simply, "1st Minnesota Volunteers." This is a call to all USA fans traveling to Germany to bring banners or make some while there. I don't know how hard it is to get materials in Germany, but the canvas and spray paint thing works well. You just spread the canvas out, mask off some letters, and spray. Stencils would also work. Figure something out. Let's do it.
