Germany -- You've Come a Long Way in 20 Years!

Listening to a news podcasts on the ride in to work this morning, I was reminded that this is a very special time for our German teammates.

On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall came down.

On November 8, 2009, for a second consecutive year, a German cyclist of the undisciplined team Positivo Espresso claimed the JCRC D-Class championship. As an American member of the team, I was proud to just share the moment. Of course, there was another American named David who shared that moment 20 years ago ... singing his #1 hit on the German charts, "Looking for Freedom":

For the first time I feel like I am beginning to understand THIS post by a German teammate.

But I will never understand THAT one.

The German nes magazine Spiegel commented last week on the David in charge (unfortunately only in German).


"Hasselhoff in Berlin

The collective guilt of bad taste

David Hasselhoff is the most popular singer in Germany - a generation of Germans abroad have been haunted by this prejudice.
He was almost forgotten, but now MTV is bringing him back on stage in Berlin."

David, don't worry. I don't understand it either.

David is in the news again.
