staying off the cold football turkey

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated

When the end of a season is drawing near, players and club officials are looking forward to the summer break to rejuvenate, relax, and gather new strength. Fans usually don't look forward to the summer break, because to them, it means months without football.
This community was brought to life to change that. Inspired by potc_dogwatch, we'll be doing our best to supply you with daily/weekly activities to keep you busy and off the Cold Football Turkey. Everyone can participate, and there's no deadline on the activities - you can do them at any time, just indicate which challenge or prompt you're responding to when you post.
The main focus of this community is the German Bundesliga and the German national team, but we will have a couple of challenges and activities considering other leagues as well, simply because many football fans support more than just one league.
This community is slash-friendly.
