I think this random Google search is too random and epic not to be shared. It had all started when I decided to write down a post about my ''internet life'' - my experience, my blogs, social media etc. In my mind, I quickly traveled back to 2006 when I became an internet user... and I realised one of the first websites I ever created was a plain page with an article about World Cup semifinals.
Eight year later, I could remember putting a photo of Zidane and a German player number 13 on the website. Yes, I suffer with this thing where I tend to remember the smallest details. I totally forgot who that German player was, but I figured out I could Google it, because Google knows everything.
2002 photo of the two.
No idea on which occasion did Real play Leverkusen, but it was probably cold.
Step 1: googled 'Germany number 13' - got photos of Müller, no idea how old is he now, but did anybody hear about Müller in 2006? It was definitely not him. Maybe the number was 11 instead of 13?
Step 2: googled 'Germany number 11' - literally nothing came up. Time to take it the other way around.
Step 3: googled 'Zidane 2006' - a lot of photos of Zidane from that World Cup. A lot of photos.
Step 4: googled 'Zidane 2006 semifinal' - oh, so France was actually playing Portugal? That's cool, but I'm looking for a German player.
Step 5: googled 'Germany 2006 semifinal' - first minor victory. There's a guy wearing number 13.
I started thinking. And somehow, the name started to pop up... ''ugh, I'm sure his names starts with the letter B...''
Step 6: googled 'Germany Beckenbauer' because this big name came up to mind first. Wrong.
And then... MICHAEL BALLACK,
Step 7: googled 'Germany Michael Ballack' and saw a lot of photos of a guy wearing German national jersey number 13. Jackpot.
I was feeling proud. Not really a big leap for the humankind, not even a big leap for myself, but definitely a great feeling of accomplishment.The little things make life great, really. I was so happy for completing the googling mission. And to be honest, also a little big scared of my mind at the same time.
