Partysan vs. SpVgg Bernd reloaded!

Wednesday, June 28. 2006

Attack!A few days ago my soccer team was a little unlucky and lost the semi-final against Phanta11. A very controversial decision by the referee, who had decided, that a tree branch, which was hit, was part of the game and led to a goal had quite an impact on our game. Yesterday we then had the chance to at least make it number three at our university-soccer-cup. Since we had already faced our opponent during the qualifying round, we were confident that we could beat them again from the start. Our early goals then reminded us to the last game of our German national team. In the end we won 6 to 3, and were happy that we at least had improved on rank in comparison to last year.

@Bee: FYI I changed the header image.

BERLIN, BERLIN, ich fahre nach BERLIN!

Wednesday, June 28. 2006

weallspeakfootball.comReaders of Jan’s Blog know that he is quite a football maniac. So it was not unexpected, that he took part in the Weallspeakfootball.com project. Reading his latest posts it is obvious, that he had some real fun in Berlin! After reading about the weallspeakfootball-project I decided to send an application to participate – Today I received a confirmation that I’m invited to join from July 4th to July 7th. Now I'm really looking forward to some interesting and probably stimulating days in Berlin.

Bye, Bye, Oranjes :(

Monday, June 26. 2006

Unluckily our neigbours from the Netherlands didn't make it to the next round. I followed the game listening to B5-Aktuell's radio program, and was really disappointed, the chance to have a match Germany vs. Netherlands is gone now. Have fun with this video I found on Youtube:

Researching for this post I still did not make it to get the lyrics of the Ali B.'s cover of the Oranje-Song. But you can listen to an older cover version here. You should also have a look at this Blog, which has a category to discuss worldcup songs.

Edit: I found the lyrics of André Hazes "Wij Houden van Oranje!

Samen zijn we sterk
Eendracht maakt machtig
Hoe een klein land groot kan zijn
is dat niet prachtig

Nederland oh Nederland
Jij bent de kampioen
Wij houden van Oranje
Om zijn daden en zijn doen

Straks als het Rood-Wit-Blauw
Voor ons wordt gehesen
Dan zijn wij 'n groot gezin
Met goud zijn wij geprezen

Nederland oh Nederland
Jij bent de kampioen
Wij houden van Oranje
Om zijn daden en zijn doen

Van de tribune klinkt het Wilhelmus
Nu nog mooier dan voorheen
Och wie laat geen tranen

Nederland oh Nederland
Jij bent de kampioen
Wij houden van Oranje
Om zijn daden en zijn doen

Wij houden van Oranje
't Is de ware kampioe

After some more decent research I found Ali B.'s lyrics here.

Pictures of Market Team’s Strategiewochenende in Bamberg

Monday, June 26. 2006

PartyA few weeks ago Julia had asked me to do some DJing at an internal Market Team party, since I was member of this student initiative for about 3 years, and we always had the best parties in Bamberg at that time, I could easily be convinced to do that job. The Party was real success.

Since I was on the road with a camera for the whole weekend I also have some picture coverage:

Germany vs. Sweden - CELEBRATION!

Sunday, June 25. 2006

MarkusSince pictures tell more than a thousand words, I won't bother you with too much words about yesterday's celebration of our soccer team making it to the next round of the worldcup. Just have a look at my pictures taken downtown Bamberg here!

Yeah! Call it like that! Yesterday was an great elevation for my ego. DJing for an internal Market Team Party it was up to me to entertain a crowd of about 70 people. Somehow I found the right tunes :-) The mood was exuberant till the end! What an evening!

AND believe it, or believe it not - the song of the evening was not Sportfreunde Stiller's "'54, '74, '90, 2006", but Texas Lightning's "No no never"! Amazing.
