Summer Season Pass Confusion

22. July 2014

Hey! I got the summer season pass and going to see ANI on Thursday. 
But i’m a bit confused about the xtra stuff like poster and backstage tour. Does that stuff happen before or after? I’ve tried to find stuff online but nothing yet. If someone who’s already been could let me know that’d be fantastic! THANKS! 

"The German FA had initially planned to stay in a luxurious resort near Salvador during the World Cup in Brazil. But there was one problem: It was too big. “We didn’t want the players getting lost in the hotel,” general manager Oliver Bierhoff explained. “It wouldn’t have been good for the team spirit.”

Campo Bahia, the German-built complex that Joachim Low and his team eventually settled on, is much more modest in size. The bungalows are situated fairly closely to one another on the site next to the sleepy fisherman’s village of Santo André.

“When I saw the blueprints, I thought it might be too small,” Bierhoff told reporters a few days ago. “But then our [team] psychologist Hans-Dieter Hermann said, ‘It can’t be small enough.’” […]

The idea this time was to force them to live together in close proximity. The 23 players were assigned to a total of four bungalows and carefully mixed to avoid the developing of any factions along club or age lines. […]

The television sets in the rooms only have two channels (ARD and ZDF, the two German public broadcasters), which encourages the players to talk or to go to the main bar area near the swimming pool to watch with others. Bierhoff said life in the camp was like the “village of Asterix,” the French comic. Everything happens out in the open; everyone sees everyone the whole time.

It doesn’t sound like everybody’s ideal of paradise, but the players and staff have had nothing but praise for their accommodations. Ahead of their departure to Rio de Janeiro on Friday night, a sense of melancholy set in. Nobody, it seems, wants to leave Campo Bahia after four blissful weeks without a hint of trouble.

“We are incredibly happy that we have had these facilities,” said Howedes at the penultimate news conference. “We have developed a team spirit that has been very good for us. It’s been perfect.”"

"When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.
One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”
[[MORE]]
She refused again, but right after class she went to the principal’s office and told them what happened. They searched his locker and there was a gun in his backpack.
When he was arrested, some of my sister’s friends (some female, even) told her that she was selfish for saying no so many times. That because of her, the entire school was in jeopardy. That it wouldn’t have killed her to say yes and give it a try, but because she was so mean to him, he lost his temper. Many of her male friends said it was “girls like her” that made all women seem like cockteases.
Wouldn’t have killed her to say yes? If a man is willing to shoot someone for saying no, what happens to the poor soul who says yes? What happens the first time they disagree? What happens the first time she says she doesn’t want to have sex? That she isn’t in the mood? When they break up?
Years later, when I was a senior, I was the only girl in my Criminal Justice class. The teacher, who used to be a sergeant in the police force, told us a story of something that had happened to a girl he knew when she was in high school. There was a guy who obviously had a crush on her and he made her uncomfortable. One day he finally gathered up the courage to ask her out, and she said no.
The next day, during an assembly, he pulled a gun on her in front of everyone and threatened to kill her if she didn’t date him.
He was tackled to the ground and the gun was taken from him. When my teacher asked the class who was at fault for the crime, I was the only person who said the boy was. All the other kids in the class (who were all boys) said that the girl was, that if she had said yes he would’ve never lost it and brought a gun and tried to kill her. When my teacher said that they were wrong and that this is what is wrong with society, that whenever a white boy commits a crime it’s someone else’s fault (music, television, video games, the victim) one boy raised his hand and literally said; “But if someone were to punch me and I punched him back, who is at fault for the fight? He is, not me. It’s self-defense. She started it, so anything that happens to her is in reaction to her actions .It’s simple cause and effect.”
Even though he spent the rest of the class period ripping into the boys and saying that you are always responsible for your own actions, and that women are allowed to say no and do not have to date them, they left class laughing about how idiotic he was and that he clearly had no idea how much it hurt to be rejected.
So now we have a new school shooting, based solely on the fact some guy couldn’t get laid, and I see men, boys, applauding him, or if they’re not applauding him, they’re laying blame on women as a whole. Just like my sister’s friends did. Just like the boys in my Criminal Justice class did.
This isn’t something that’s rare. This isn’t something that never happens, or that a select group of men feel as if they are so entitled to women that saying no is not only the worst possible thing a woman can do, but is considered a form of “defense” when they commit a crime upon them (whether it be rape or murder-as-a-reaction-towards-rejection).
Girls are being killed for saying no to prom invites. Girls are being killed for saying no to men. They are creating an atmosphere where women are too scared to say no, and the worst part is? They are doing it intentionally. They want society to be that way, they want women to say yes entirely out of fear. Even the boys and men who aren’t showing up to schools with guns are saying; “Well, you know, I wouldn’t do that, but you have to admit that if she had just said yes …”
If you are a man and you defend this guys’ actions or try to find an excuse for it, or you denounce what really happened, or in any way lay blame on women, every girl you know, every woman you love, has just now thought to themselves that you might lose your shit and kill them someday for saying no. You have just lost their trust. And you know what? You deserve to lose it."
