Jordan and Jeff finally arrive at the sauerkraut restaurant, and Jeff tells the band to "Play as slow as you can. Like one hour long." Because they've got an hour to spare. The music starts, and Jordan holds her nose as she eats. And then her ears. Normally that's the kind of thing I make fun of her for, but maybe she just likes polka as much as I do.
Brent and Caite arrive at the soccer stadium "I've played soccer since I was five," she interviews. "It's my number-one sport and I'm reeeeally good at it." See? She does score a target pretty much right away.
The last notes of the "Sauerkraut Polka" are played for Jordan and Jeff while they've still got a good-sized dollop sitting on the plate in front of them. Without any discussion, Jeff gets up from the table, burping, "See you later, sauerkraut." Jordan can follow or not, I guess. They're both pretty upset in the cab to the soccer stadium. "Hopefully somebody got a penalty," Jordan says. "Hopefully somebody fell off a bridge, with cement shoes," Jeff says. "That's our hope right now." He's kidding, but I wouldn't put that past some of these teams.
Suddenly Caite's legs seem to give out on her in the middle of the soccer task. Brent says it's probably just from sitting on a plane fifteen hours and then running around, but she's frustrated to the point of tears. Last week it was her gut, now it's her legs. It would suck to be the youngest person on the race and yet be the one plagued by physical breakdowns. "I've been playing soccer since I was five years old and it's pissing me off!" she says. Aaaand now she's five again.
After the break, Brent suggest switching tasks, but Caite refuses. Brent retrieves the balls for her so that she can rest her legs in between rounds of kicking as hard as she still can.
Carol and Brandy arrive at the Haifisch Bar and start on their beer. "Good luck," Jet tells them sarcastically. Carol and Brandy appear to have not one but two boots of beer on their table. Maybe they misunderstood the clue and got one for each of themselves. Or maybe they're just both really thirsty.
Joe and Heidi are dropped off at Beatles-Platz and quickly find Indra, where they are team number three. They seem pleasantly surprised. As they should be. I doubt there are many teams who have tried both Detours and still finished that leg in third place.
