And Germany has a marble game!

It only took three weeks. Over in Old Germany, the kiddies have finally sorted through their various squabbles and found a way to get their marble game off the ground. Angie Black will serve as the first female team captain (causing all the little boys to squeal "eeew!"), but various standins for George Red (who's apparently decided he's had enough of marbles for now) will get more turns at the hill. Guido Yellow, Josh Green, and the twins will be watching from the sidelines. A fine compromise, and an inspiration to all the marbles-playing children across the world who have yet to learn to share with their little friends.

(For those looking for more serious commentary in English, this upcoming TIME Europe article is really quite good.)
