'Utterly Bizarre': Seahawks fans from around the world find kindred spirits at a London bar

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Tyler Lockett, Bobby Wagner and Russell Wilson. On the street, the line is littered with jerseys — from Wilson to Alexander to Matt Hasselbeck to Walter Jones to Steve Largent to Rocky Bernard. There is a big man with a blue goatee (and, because he’s sweating, the paint’s bleeding down his neck). Wallace Watts, a United Airlines pilot who has dubbed himself “Captain Seahawk,” struts down Borough High Street with a Seahawks logo etched onto a black top hat, a blue suit coat, green pants, green shoes, green gloves, green sunglasses (in the dark, if that matters) and a red and blue Union Jack vest. Everybody’s waiting, and no one seems to care. Every couple minutes, a “SEA-HAWKS” chant breaks out, with the words ringing — probably for the first time — up and down London Bridge. A passerby turns to his friend, and says sincerely, “What’s a Seahawk?” This is a spectacle some Londoners can’t begin to understand. The 12s, though, are an unabashedly global group. In all, the Seahawks tout booster clubs in 55 locations, with more than 10,000 members. There are fans here from the United States, England, France, Scotland, Canada, Italy, Denmark, etc. The list goes on and on. Like the Clarkes, they all found something special in a city nearly 5,000 miles from London. They all have a Seahawks story. Here are just a few. Germany The Seahawks are Maximilian Lange’s hobby, not his job. Though his girlfriend might disagree. Lange — who was born in Stuttgart, Germany, but lives in Switzerland — adopted the team in 2008, shortly after visiting friends on a vacation in Oregon. He enrolled at the University of Oregon in 2013 and made the 280-mile drive north multiple times to attend Seahawks games. In 2014, right after the Super Bowl win, he founded the Seahawkers booster club in Germany. It started with 15 members paying 15 euros per year. That number has since rose to more than a thousand. In his free time, Lange — who works in public relations — organizes events and watch parties. This year, 30 members are flying to Seattle for the Sunday night game against San Francisco on Dec. 2. A membership also gets you a discount at the Seahawks pro shop and entry into the club’s many lucrative contests. “You can win Skittles,” Lange said with a laugh, referencing Raider running back Marshawn Lynch’s favorite snack. There are more than 200 German Seahawks fans in London for Sunday’s game. Lange is one of them. Markus Bachmann is another. Further ahead in the line, Bachmann and three friends nurse beers and try hard to stay awake. They flew here from Nuremberg at 7 a.m. on Friday. He paid 200 euros — the equivalent of $232 — for a ticket. Bachmann has supported the team since 2012, when he watched a game with a friend “and he was a Seahawks fan, so I decided to become a Seahawks fan.” The next year, they won the Super Bowl. Now Bachmann routinely stays up until 2 a.m. to watch the games on his computer. He’s used to sacrificing sleep for the Seahawks, so this is nothing new. Still, not everyone sees the appeal. “I think I spend too much time on (the booster club),...https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/seahawks/utterly-bizarre-seahawks-fans-from-around-the-world-find-kindred-spirits-at-a-london-bar/

Halle (Saale): Generationenwechsel im Flower 2.0: So erfindet sich Halles „Flopo“ neu

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Gastroszene. Gemeinsam haben sie im Dorint Hotel ihre Ausbildung gemacht, sich kennen und schätzen gelernt. „Ich habe Max dann gefragt, ob er sich mit mir gemeinsam selbstständig machen möchte“, erinnert sich Lukas Röse - darüber habe sein Freund nicht lange nachdenken müssen. So entstand schließlich die Bierkanzlei, die fest zur Barszene rund um den Moritzburgring gehört. Erst für den Flower Power-Chef gekellnert Zum Flower 2.0 kamen die beiden schließlich über René Lorenz, der eigentlich KFZ-Sachverständiger ist und das Gebäude 2003 gekauft hat. „Mir hat immer das Tablett in der Hand gefehlt“, erzählt Lorenz, der zwar im Studium gekellnert hat, danach aber erst einmal als Sachverständiger gearbeitet hat. Schließlich habe er die richtige Location gesucht und im Flower Power gefunden. Lukas Röse hat dann seinerseits bei Lorenz gekellnert und es entstand eine Freundschaft zwischen dem 47-Jährigen und dem 35-Jährigen. Flower 2.0 in Halle: Keller zu Kneipe, Bar und Disko umgebaut Dort, wo das heutige Flower 2.0 ist, war lange Zeit aber nur Lager, Heizungskeller und Werkstatt. „Wir haben dann angefangen zu überlegen und ein Jahr lang rumgebastelt“, erzählt Lorenz, dann haben sie alles ausgeräumt, die Kellerräume entkernt und saniert. „Es sollte eine Mischung aus Kneipe, Bar und Disko entstehen - wie oben auch“, sagt der Betreiber. Etwas anders als der ursprüngliche Club wurde es dann aber doch: Alles bekam eine Steinoptik, die Blumendeko ist deutlich zurückhaltender und eine Lüftungsanlage sorgt auch im Sommer für frische Luft in der Kelleranlage. Am 1. Dezember 2017 konnten die drei ihr neues „Baby“ dann endlich öffnen. „Und es hat von der ersten Minute an gerockt“, freut sich Lorenz - so wie es jetzt ist, habe er es sich immer gewünscht. Flower 2.0 in Halle: In 15 Jahren gab es hier noch nie Eintritt Immer, wenn sich die Leute nachts fragen, wo sie jetzt noch hingehen könnten, sei die Antwort „Ins Flower“, erinnert er sich, wie es auch schon früher war, als es unter den Kneipiers hieß „Seid nicht sauer, geht ins Flower“. Und das liegt nicht nur daran, dass es in 15 Jahren noch nie Eintritt in dem Club gab, der für eigentlich alle Altersgruppen etwas zu bieten hat. Künftig sollen Lukas Röse und Maximilian Leißring den Club dann einmal ganz übernehmen. „Ich habe zwei Profis dazugeholt und kann endlich auch mal abschalten“, betont Lorenz. Für ihn ist vor allem wichtig, dass seine „fröhlichste Kreuzung der Welt“ erhalten bleibt und dass „die Jungs“, wie er sie nennt, mit Herzblut für den Club brennen und Spaß haben.

Geheimnisverrat: Nord/LB schaltet die Justiz ein

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Die Veröffentlichung von internen Revisionsberichten der Norddeutschen Landesbank (Nord/LB) schlägt hohe Wellen. Im Landtag forderten Politiker der Opposition Aufklärung, die Bank selbst hat Strafanzeige erstattet. Möglicherweise hat ein Mitarbeiter die geheimen Informationen weitergegeben. Es wird aber auch über einen Zusammenhang mit den Gesprächen spekuliert, die das Land Niedersachsen derzeit mit privaten Investoren führt. Der NDR und die Süddeutsche Zeitung hatten Ergebnisse aus acht Berichten der bankinternen Revision veröffentlicht, die der Nord/LB erhebliche Mängel vor allem bei der Kontrolle der Schiffskredite attestieren. Er habe den Vorstandschef der Nord/LB gebeten, zeitnah einen Bericht zur Aufklärung des Sachverhalts vorzulegen, sagte Finanzminister Reinhold Hilbers (CDU) bei einer von den Grünen kurzfristig beantragten Debatte am Freitag im Landtag. Inhaltlich werde er sich nicht zu Prüfberichten äußern, erklärte Hilbers. Diese lägen dem Ministerium auch nicht vor. Hilbers ist zugleich Aufsichtsratschef der Bank.

Europe: Going with the flow on the Danube and the Rhine

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Bamberg.Nearby Nuremberg's name is written in its World War II and the post-war story; an unparalleled opportunity for visitors interested in all-too modern history. This is Bavaria and they brew beer, bake (more) pretzels and serve sausages. The specialities should be on the menu at Regensburg, which boasts Germany's oldest sausage kitchen, where one can find the best wurst. Passau is "the last city in Germany", where three rivers meet, and its baroque style is worth visiting in its own right. Many passers-through, however, will head for nearby Salzburg, home of Mozart, location for The Sound of Music, and the temptations of its chocolatiers. Another option — especially for those who want to add another country into their passports — is Cesky Krumlov, a tiny World Heritage city with a huge castle across the border in the Czech Republic. Back on the boat, the voyage continues along scenic stretches of the Danube to Linz, then Melk and its famous abbey. For many guests, a highlight is cycling to Durnstein, about 40km, through vineyards and flowers, charming villages and ruined castles. Now, three capital cities in three days — each with its unique history and its distinctive present — the starched grandeur of Vienna (Austria), quirky impudence of Bratislava (Slovakia), poignant glamour of Budapest (Hungary). To farewell Europe feeling like royalty, travellers can ride the Grand Empress steam train, evoking memories of the beautiful and tragic Elisabeth, 19th century Empress of Austria. Boarding at Budapest Station's royal waiting room, the short journey, in carriages from the early 1900s, treats guests to a traditional game lunch and a tour of the monarch's summer residence, Godollo Palace. Three rivers, six countries, more than 20 centuries of history, art, culture, food and wine, tours and activities: it sounds like a lot to cram into two weeks. But when you go with the relaxed flow of a European river cruise, time seems to go past slowly — if not stand still. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/news/article.cfm?c_id=7&objectid=12132000

Bavarian Election Exit Poll: Merkel Allies See Huge Losses As Greens and Populists Surge

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

The Christian Social Union (CSU) is projected to win the Bavarian election but the allies of German Chancellor Angela Merkel has seen huge losses in support while the Green Party has surged. An exit poll released by Infratest dimap shows the centre-right CSU as the winner of the election with 35.5 percent of the vote, which constitutes a massive 12.2 percent loss compared to the previous Bavarian election in 2013. The biggest winner of the race has been the Green Party, who look to have doubled their support compared to 2013 as the left-liberal Social Democrats (SPD) saw a total collapse, losing over 10 percent of their previous support.

Bavaria election: German conservatives lose their fizz

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Every autumn, lederhosen-clad drinkers crowd into vast tents festooned with dried hop flowers, to celebrate Bavaria's most intoxicating export. Waitresses bearing fistfuls of beer glasses squeeze between packed wooden benches. It's hard to make much out above the brass band music but, listen closely this year, and the talk is of politics. Just like Oktoberfest, Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative sister party is woven into the checked fabric of Bavarian culture. The Christian Social Union (CSU) has ruled Germany's richest state since 1957, sharing power just once in a coalition with the free-market FDP. And since then, every Bavarian prime minister has risen from its ranks. But now, swift as a reveller draining his tankard, support has ebbed away. The CSU is bracing itself for humiliating losses in today's Bavarian state election. The party is on course to lose the absolute majority its leaders once took for granted. This is likely to be an historic election which will define Bavaria's very identity, encapsulated in the word "Heimat" (homeland). "In this...https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-45835795

Germany's Greens flourish while mainstream rivals flounder

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Greens have become a magnet for liberal-minded voters in the past year. The party appears poised for an unprecedented second-place finish in traditionally conservative Bavaria's state election on Sunday. It is polling strongly ahead in the election scheduled in neighboring Hesse two weeks later. The Greens have clear policies on central issues, including an emphasis on fighting climate change and a largely liberal approach to migration. The party also has a pragmatic approach and become a partner to parties from the center-right to the hard left in nine of Germany's 16 state governments. Nationally, some recent polls have shown them level with the Social Democrats, traditionally Germany's main center-left party.
