For Pete's Sake

Soccer players wield beer during a team photo

I’m not sure what’s more amusing, the fact that most of the players are holding a glass of beer for this team photo or their clothes.

There is one simple explanation for both: It’s a German soccer team.

And not just any German team.

It’s Bayern Munich, the financial giant that buys all the best players in the Bundesliga and sometimes sits them on the bench to keep them from other teams. That’s why they are three-time league champions.

On Tuesday, Bayern’s players were at a photo shoot for sponsor Paulaner. They also were wearing “traditional” clothing, according to the cutline information. It does appear some of them are wearing lederhosen.

Here are some of the fun photos — or scroll through the ones above.
