Some trust in lucky tapes, others do not shave or light a candle. In tournament times, many Bonn riders have rituals and come up with the craziest ideas of how the German team can get the World Cup with their help.
"Since the beginning of the World Cup I have not shaved," says David Wölk (29). "And the beard will stay at least until next Monday, after Germany won," Wölk is confident.
He is also superstitious with his jersey, since it has not seen any washing machine from the inside since the start of the tournament. Two welding bands complete the outfit.
Uli Jünger (35) has less beard, but a lot more hair because his wig must be simple. "Of course, no German game starts without my Dante memory wig. Although the 'ne tricky thing, as Dante may be in the starting line for Brazil, "says Jünger.
The friends David Piazolo (20) and Jan Büchel (19), on the other hand, can be recognized by their uniform jerseys, which they wear on the "Kunst! Rasen": "There we saw the first game and we have to watch all the games. "
Always having to be at the same place, this seems to be another spleen of the federal cities. "I have seen every game in the garden of the parents of my girlfriend," says Bartträger Wölk.
Not in the same place, but on the same place Peter Schmidt-Amberg (62) fights jogging guys. "I always sit on a certain chair. Since I watch the game against Brazil with my daughter next door curly african american wigs, we take the chair with, "says Schmidt-Amberg.

Wig disciples, on the other hand, do not have a preference for where or when they see Jogis guys, but before the game their five Easter candles have to be lit so that nothing can go wrong.
If Müller and Co. are only half as well prepared as the Bonn fans on Tuesday night, then nothing stands in the way of a victory against Brazil.
