My mate Tibor called me up with 2 free tickets for the game against Paderborn PLUS 2 VIP Lounge tickets.
(Tibor – being Hungarian – has lots of Hungarian mates, one of whom used to play for Mainz 05 and now trains one of the junior teams. Good guy to know).
Off we toddle, get our armbands welded in place and into hedonistic heaven.
Phalanxes of scantily-clad dolly birds, pouring champagne down our throats and force-feeding us caviar.
Buckets of cocaine.
Er, not really.
But the wheat beer was very nice
As were the pretzels.
And Mainz won 6:1.
Things are looking up…
