My Favourite Brussels anecdote
I had once a very serious job interview in Brussels and the last question that I had been asked in interview was about the line-up of the German team in the final of the World Championship tournament in 1974 in Munich. It was taken by surprise, I have to admit, but I could mention all names. The answer of the employer was simply: “OK, thanks, you got the job.”
