    My first residence in Germany was in a town in the Black Forrest. Back then there was not an internet and phoning back to home for sports news was a good way to heavily finance the Deutsche Bundespost. I quickly discovered that I was going to have to adapt. My local paper... (Schwarzwalder Bote)... would only write stories about VfB and the Kickers. It seemed obvious I would have to pick one or the other. A fateful decision as it turned out.

    The high point was perhaps the 3rd game relegation playoff win versus St. Pauli at Schalke. We came up just short of staying in the Bundesliga because Moenchengladbach blew a big lead against SG Wattenscheid 09 on the last day. There was one appearance in the DFB Cup final... (which we lost... in Berlin to HSV if you recall).

    Deutsche Bundespost :eek: Thats Indeed only quite a few years ago :D
    And I think it hasnt been such a bad decision to choose Kickers Stuttgart, could have been worse. You could have chosen KSC for example, or even VfB ;)
    And how could I forget our last championship since more than 25 years :rolleyes: Just to be precise, it was 1987 and Germany was still divided. I was too young to do it myself but I know people who drove from Hamburg to Berlin to watch the game. Not a far distance (roundabout 300km) but you had to drive through the GDR these days. Adventurous ! :cool:

    They have been at least 20 years behind of us these days, technically and economically. There are still some areas in Berlin where you can have a guess how it must have looked like these days though more and more old buildings and streets are replaced, PackerFan71.
    But just remember you had to wait for more than 10 years to get your car and you finally got a Trabant ! Ridiculous.
    Ooops, I think we are getting off topic here.... :oops::D

    I remember the Friedrichstrasse station. It was like you entered the subway in West Berlin in 1985 and got out in the East in 1955. (with the exception of a few diplomatic vehicles cruising Berlin Mitte).

    When I was working at the NDR in Hamburg, an intern offered me a ride home. He had a brand new shiny Trabant. His back luck was that he finally got it one week before the wall fell. He was quite defensive about it. "It's new... why shouldn't I keep it?" The crash test results would have been one argument. :D

    I've always considered the Hammers and Vikings somewhat too harmless to develop a passionate distaste for. Interesting choices. Big Sam has been a pain in the butt over the years. I am looking for Norv Turner to make drastic improvements to the Vikings.

    As a fan of Ipswich Town, I can still remember a semi-final of the F.A. Cup back in 1976 when those dirty SOB kicked my team to pieces all through the game. I have hated the "School of Football" Hammers ever since. Yes I can certainly carry a grudge ;).

    What a miserable year. Nevermind the Chargers and City... the Tigers were swept by the Orioles. The B.C. Lions give up 50 points in the 1st round of the playoffs. Sri Lanka is crushed in the Cricket World Cup. The Sunrisers were awful. Richmond crashes out in Aussie Rules. The Red Wings will likely make the playoffs, but don't look like they'll get very far.

    So almost everything is riding on the promotion of the Kickers to the 2. Bundesliga salvage a portion of glory for this sporting season.
