Well, yes – I know. Soccer is pretty much unknown in a lot of countries of this world. But I’m still a German – so I’ll have to enjoy soccer, it’s somehow in my genes.
It’s a bit difficult to follow the German Major League (Bundesliga) from New Zealand, especially watching games is nearly impossible. But by using some websites it’s at least fairly simple to follow the results.
This years Soccer World Cup creates a tough task. First support was my soccer-maniac ex-co-worker Michael Jung, who posted an entry on a tiny Outlook-addon which creates all the necessary calendar entries related to the Soccer World Cup. This is good, especially as I’m running my Outlook with two timezones and so I’ve got an idea now when the games are on in New Zealand time.
But that doesn’t solve my issues with watching the games. But Michael was vey supportive again and posted several links to streaming websites where you can watch sport events via the internet. I’m going to dig into that.
Or – even better: Anybody interested in placing a webcam in front of the TV during some World Cup games and sending them down to New Zealand in a Breeze Meeting room or via Skype or so…? HELP!
