Since Müller had an astonishingly great game, Sandra has decided that he should give his name to the little striped guy, and has plans to stage a soccer-themed photo shoot for him. In the meantime, the juxtaposition of the monster against one of my dad’s photos of the prairie is just cracking me up. Little Monster on the Prairie.
