CHRISTIE, DCFC & BVB
Strange bedfellows, one might think, but there is a thread connecting the band I play in, the team I support, and the German club, Borussia Dortmund. The “thread” is one Rainer Frank, a lifetime German fan of Christie, and Borussia Dortmund. Rainer usually pops over to my blog to check out what’s happening with Christie, and he discovered we have a mutual love of football through the articles I made relating to my Derby County CD, “Fan Fayre for the Commons People”. The proud owner of the first copy that DCFC tribute in Germany, he very kindly sent me a BVB coffee mug as a present, which I thought just had to be shared with all you Cafe Cremers! Miki has very creatively presented it for you here. Generous to a fault, I am also to receive a BVB football shirt, when Christie next meet up with Rainer & friends at our concert in Kamenz next month.
Derby’s results haven’t been too hot of late, (dumped out of the cup by Rotherham, losing to Scunthorpe) and neither have Borussia Dortmunds, having leaked 4 against hamburg in the league, and 5 in a friendly against Real Madrid last night – but there’s one thing Rainer and I have in common when it comes to football – BLIND OPTIMISM!
