World Cup Soccer Excitement Causes Amnesia

So excited to see the World Cup, a 25 year old Boston man checked into his hotel in Germany before racing over to see the big Poland-Costa Rica clash. Afterwards he spent the next six hours wandering around Hanover fruitlessy searching for his hotel because he couldn't remember its name, address or anything else about it.

Finally, at 3 a.m., he went to the police and asked for help. All he could remember was paying 10 euros for a taxi ride to the city center and that he went past a park and a Mercedes dealer (which is probably a lot like saying you passed a Ford dealership in the U.S.).

The police took the genius to the area that matched his vague description of the city of 500,000 and spent an hour driving his ass up and down streets until he recognized his hotel just before dawn.
