Turning the page

Hello to all,

Very short post, just to share why languages are sometimes so interesting.

We heard yesterday that Sepp Blatter is resigning as FIFA head, after his successful re-election last weekend. So FIFA has to turn a page.

The interesting thing is that the German word for “turning the page” is “blättern”. And this resembles a lot like Blatter. Blatter and blättern. Small difference, but big impact for FIFA and football.

Take care,

Bas
