It really is Bayern Munich and the rest in German football.
Back when Borussia Dortmund threatened to actually put together a sustained title back in the heady days of August and September we imagined things could be different in Germany.
We imagined a possible three-way title chase with Munich, Dortmund and RB Leipzig all competing for the league and the competition coming down to the wire in May.
But then we remembered that Bayern are Bayern and the Bundesliga is the Bundesliga.
Lets rewind to the beginning of October when Bayern had just sacked Carlo Ancelotti and were five points behind Dortmund.
Jupp Heynckes came back for his fourth stint in charge at the Allianz Arena and reinstalled the brilliant winning mentality that brought a treble in his last season in charge.
Fast forward to today and Bayern have won 11 of the 12 league games since Heynckes was appointed and built a 16 point lead at the top of the table.
They have made the Bundesliga look so easy and have been so dominant that second placed Bayer Leverkusen are closer to the relegation zone than they are to the leaders.
There are just 15 points separating Leverkusen and Werder Bremen in 16th but, after Bayern beat Bremen this weekend, a 16-point gap between first and second.
FC Hollywood have won the last five Bundesligas and they look certainties to do so again.
While we live in hope that Leipzig can put together a team strong enough to actually challenge for a whole season, there is that horrible feeling that as soon as they get good enough Bayern will come calling for their best players.
As for Dortmund, their promising start to the season has fallen apart at the sides.
BVB have picked up just 11 points in the 12 games since Heynckes was appointed, sacked their manager and now rest in sixth place, 17 points behind their rivals.
Goodbye Bundesliga, it was nice knowing you.
