Philipp Lahm is retiring. That is a sad thing.
Throughout his career, Lahm has been two things: a winner, and criminally underrated. He captained Germany during their 2014 World Cup win and captained Bayern Munich to numerous Bundesliga titles, Champions League titles and domestic cup titles.
Thank you very much for all your messages. A day later, I’d like to explain my decision to you in detail: pic.twitter.com/Xz213rxM73
Bayern Munich are like a B1G college football team. They grind teams down into dust and break wills. They keep the ball forever so when the opposing team gets it they don't know what to do with it.
Such was the case against Wolfsburg in the DFB Pokal Tuesday.

For years now, the top dog of the Bundesliga has been FC Bayern Munich. Apart from winning the Bundesliga championship 26 times on a consistent basis ever since the 1968-69 season, Bayern has been able to establish themselves as a powerhouse of Germany football.
Snapchat knows how to keep us entertained. The popular social media platform recently paired up with Europe’s top football clubs to debut a series of lenses for fans to show their support.
The new lenses are available for fans of Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester City, PSG, Marseille, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Inter Milan, Atlético Madrid and Barcelona. Those who are fans of these clubs will only be able to use the virtual face filters at each team’s respective stadium for the rest of the season.
Many clubs have official Twitter accounts and many of those official club Twitter accounts are bad. Not Bayern Munich's, though. Bayern Munich's official club Twitter account is good.
Just look at this. This is art.

The Bundesliga returned from its winter break on Friday, and Bayern Munich defeated Freiburg after Robert Lewandowski blatantly cheated to score in the 91st minute.
He trapped the ball with his chest, which wasn’t fair, juggled it, which was a clear foul, and rolled a shot in off the post, which should earn him a lifetime ban. Poor Freiburg, they didn’t deserve to lose, not like this.
How did he do that?
According to reports from German weekly sports magazine Sport Bild, Bayern Munich midfielder and Spanish legend Xabi Alonso is planning to retire at the end of the season. Alonso, who still plays a key role for the Bavarian club in the center of the park, is said to have informed the club of his decision to hang up his boots at the conclusion of this season.
Louis van Gaal, formerly the most entertaining manager in world football, has retired. We are sad now.
Van Gaal had everything we look for in a manager who doesn't manage the club we personally root for, which is to say: antics.
This article explains basically every reason van Gaal will be missed so much, but it predates both van Gaal's famous sideline flop against Arsenal and the time he said his players needed to be more horny.
I know what you're thinking and no, Thomas Muller was not dressed up in a disguise or protected by a security guard.
So how did the Bayern Munich player successfully avoid the awaiting press contingent at the airport? All he did was talk on the phone!
The funny thing is...his phone was really his passport. Take a look at the video:
