We made a trip through Munich's English Garden on our way up to the stadium. The English Garden is much like New York's Central Park, and our destination was the iconic Chinese Tower, which includes an adjacent beer garden. Unbeknownst to us, we were just about to miss the path that leads to the tower, when the roar of the crowd celebrating a goal in the Spain-Ukraine game told us where we needed to go.
We spent a half-hour watching the game with hundreds of others who had gathered to do the same. And we were pleased with the result, as Ukraine's 4-0 loss meant they had topped the U.S. for worst showing in the tournament to date.
