Hitler: Not a Football Fan

hitlerThe Times declared Adolf Hitler the most vile football fan of all time.  Russell Brand was second.  Unfortunately for the newspaper’s ardent fact-checking department, the Fuhrer was no football fan at all.

Hitler never saw a match until the 1936 Olympics, where he left in a huff after Germany conceded a second goal in a 2-1 defeat to Norway.  

No slouch in other matters, he made no attempt to impose the skillful short passing of the Schalke Kreisel on the German national team.

Schalke did win the German League six times between 1934 and 1942.  It wasn’t nefarious.  They were just really good.
