Football, eawag style
Yesterday, some people at eawag organized a football tourney for the whole institute. Some 13 teams got together and played football at a nearby pitch for about 5 hours (with short 12 minutes games). Each team was required to have one girl, and I think we were the only one with more girls than guys. That's ecology for you. We didn't have much experience, but had a lot of energy, and it was fun. We finally one a game for the 11th/12th place game (our 5th and last match). I was amazed at how well a lot of people did on energy and momentum alone without having much ball handing or strat skills. Just go. It was a fun afternoon and a good excuse to get away from the lab bench/computer screen (though our 17 degree C analysis room actually felt good in yesterday's heat). Naturally the event ended with wurst and beer in proper central European style. And the winning teams got champagne.
