A Fanfest Without Fans is Just a Fest

Fueled up with plenty of Warsteiner and American enthusiasm, we made our way towards the stadium around 1:30, stopping off at the Gelsenkirchen Fanfest along the way. The Gluckauf-Kampfbahn was the home of the local side, FC Schalke 04, until the 1970s. We'll give them the benefit of the doubt, since the U.S. game was still five hours from kickoff, but it was not the most happening of the Fanfests, the Red Hot Chili Peppers cover band not withstanding.

I would have liked to have seen what this place looked like during the game. While it was big, it just didn't seem to have the same appeal as the Frankfurt Fanfest, it was lacking something unique that the others seemed to have.
