'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 hes sweating, the paints 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. Everybodys 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, Whats a Seahawk? This is a spectacle some Londoners cant 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 Langes 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 clubs many lucrative contests. You can win Skittles, Lange said with a laugh, referencing Raider running back Marshawn Lynchs favorite snack. There are more than 200 German Seahawks fans in London for Sundays 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. Hes 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

Hasen in der halleschen 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.

Germany’s new Green divide - POLITICO.eu

Saturday, December 8, 2018

Germanys Social Democrats would do well to look at the neighborhood of Haidhausen in central Munich. For centuries, the area was known as the poorhouse of the Bavarian capital; after post-war reconstruction, it became a dilapidated workers quarter, described as a district of broken glass for its rundown condition. About half of all apartments had no bathroom and no hot water, the magazine Der Spiegel wrote in 1980. Even fewer had access to central heating. Over the past few decades, however, the neighborhood has flourished thanks in no small part to a large-scale redevelopment plan initiated by the SPD-led city government in the early 1970s. Gentrification has taken hold. Residents are younger and rents are higher than the Munich average. Trendy cafes, expensive bicycles and organic shops cluster around the districts picturesque squares. Given Haidhausens history, its no surprise that the Social Democrats were the dominant party in this area for decades at least until recently. In Bavarias state election in October, the SPD suffered a colossal defeat in the Munich-Mitte constituency to which Haidhausen belongs, its vote share shrinking by t...https://www.politico.eu/article/germany-green-party-haidhausen-munich-elections-social-democrats-spd-is-the-new-red/

Bavaria election: German conservatives lose their fizz - BBC News

Saturday, December 8, 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.com/news/world-europe-45835795

Travel: Germany's answer to Vancouver and Whistler is worth the trip - BCBusiness

Saturday, December 8, 2018

But B.C.s favourite winter wonderland lacks the old-timey charm of Berchtesgaden. And while some aspects of the Bavarian retreats history are undoubtedly regrettable (thanks to historical museum Dokumentation Obersalzberg and its 170,000 visitors in 2017, the village doesnt shy away from its past), others have aged well. A trip across a lake named K.nigssee, for example, yields the Church of St. Bartholom., built in the 12th century, plus a family-run food stand specializing in smoked trout on a bun. (Just dont ask for WiFi.) The right to fish in the lake is passed down from generation to generation, with only one person holding the right to catch at any given time. Not a bad business model. Speaking of which, two other notable commercial endeavours in the region that have stood the test of time are lederhosen clothier Engelbert Aigner and the Grassl distillery, which specializes in schnapps. The former is another family business, though instead of monopolizing Germanys waterways, it makes artisanal lederhosen. This isnt the stuff you can find in every tourist shop in Germany for $200 a pop, either. Its the real, custom, hand-stitched item that will put you on a year-long waitlist. Apparently, the leather is a good choice in the mercurial Bavarian climate and isnt only worn during Oktoberfest. (Though if you dont sport a pair in Germany then, youre not even a tourist; youre like an alien or something.) The latter is Germanys oldest distillery, open since 1692. Grassl doesnt use any aromas or perfumes for its schnapps, either; theyre all-natural, to the point that many of the shops specialty products are still made up in the mountain ranges and barrel-aged for three years. Berchtesgaden has also cornered the market on a certain Olympic sport with a massive luge/bobsled track that German athletes flock to in all seasons. It seems like a perfect little paradise, but as with all such places, our time here is too short. Keep Munich weirdAfter another bus ride through the mountains, we arrive in the capital of the state of Bavaria. Spotless Munich is one of the richest areas of Europe, but there are some eccentricities amid the beautiful buildings that shape the city centre. Perhaps chief among them is the Rathaus-Glockenspiel, basically a huge merry-go round, atta...https://www.bcbusiness.ca/Travel-Germanys-answer-to-Vancouver-and-Whistler-is-worth-the-trip
