Rosenlaui – WM – Bar, Meiringen, Bern
I’ve visited most of the World Cup Bars; but for some weird reason, I was stuck in Rosenlaui during the Honduras – Switzerland game. There is no mobile phone reception at the hotel, they do not have a tv and WiFi still seems a century away. The hotel director of the Rosenlaui obviously lacks any understanding for football experts. So the only option is to walk 20 minutes, climb a hill and listen to the radio. Well the view was great, the seating uncomfortable (rock in a meadow) and no tv, just live ticker and Hans Peter Latour on DRS 4. Wins on atmosphere, loses on comfort – and the question remains, if Chile’s offside goal wouldn’t have counted, we’d be on our way to the finals!
