DLSU Green Booters, nananatili sa ikalawang pwesto sa UAAP Football

ni Rendcel Isip

Pinayuko ng De La Salle University (DLSU) Green Booters ang University of the East (UE) Red Warriors Football Team nang matapos ang kanilang laban sa iskor na 1-0 sa University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) 77 Men’s Football Tournament. Nagana pang larong ito sa Moro Lorenzo Football Field sa Ateneo De Manila University noong ika-8 ng Pebrero 2015.

Sa pagbubukas ng laro, mainit na agad ang labanan sa pagitan ng dalawang koponan. Dalawang free kicks na kaagad ang nakamit ng Morayta-based team matapos ang dalawang minute pa lamang ng laban. Gayunpaman, tagumpay na naka-goal ang DLSU Green Booters sa pamumuno ni Gerald Layumas sa 13-minute mark na laban. Natapos ang unang half ng football sa iskor na 1-0.

Bigo nang makakuha ng puntos ang magkabilang koponan sa pagbubukas at pagtatapos ng ikalawang half ng laro.

Sa panayam kay Chuck Uy, isa sa mga strikers ng DLSU Green Booters, sinabi niyang nakatulong man ang pagkakaroon ng sari-sariling estratehiya ng mga manlalaro sa loob ng field, kinakailangan pa rin ang maayos na komunikasyon sa pagpasa at pagtanggap ng bola. “Sa defense naman, ‘yung apat naming [players] did a great job at that. Kudos to them, na-hold nila ang 1-0 lead namin.”

Nananatili sa ikalawang posisyon ang Taft-based squad sa ranking sa Men’s division ng UAAP Football Tournament.

Nakatakda ang kanilang susunod na laban sa ika-15 ng Pebrero sa FEU Diliman kontra Adamson University (AU).

KILALANIN AT SUPORTAHAN ANG LAHAT ng atletang Lasalyanong patuloy na nagsusumikap upang makapagbigay ng karangalan sa Pamantasang De La Salle! Mga Lasalyano, aabangan bukas, Hunyo 28, ang SIGNOS, ispesyal na isyu ng Seksyon ng ISPORTS at RETRATO ng Ang Pahayagang Plaridel para sa unang bahagi ng UAAP 76!! #APP #UAAP76 #ISPORTS #RETRATO

Interview #19: Nummer 78
  • Reporter:Nach Eurer grandiosen Twitter-Kurzanalyse des WM-Finals zwischen Argentinien und Deutschland ist die ganze Welt an der Geschichte hinter dem entscheidenden WM-Tor durch Mario Götze interessiert. Als Spezialist für die Analyse der an die WM-Spiele gekoppelten SPINTROTTER iMindgames kannst Du uns da sicherlich auf die Sprünge helfen, Andrew!
  • Andrew:Kein Ding! Es war eine Unterweisung Assaphs. Höre mein Volk, mein Gesetz: Öffnet eure Ohren zu der Rede meines Mundes! Ich will meinen Mund auftun und euch mit kaltem Kaffee penetrieren bis der Arzt kommt. Ich werde Geschichte aussprechen, die wir alle unabdingbar gehört haben müssen. Denn wir alle wissen, was uns schon unsere Väter erzählt haben. Auf dass wir uns nicht verhalten sollen wie die Männer, die dorther pilgern, um den Ruhm des Herrn und seine Macht und Wunder, die er getan hat, in alle Welt zu tragen. So hat uns Assaph sein Zeugnis geschickt – und auf einen gewissen Jakob hingewiesen. Dem Namen nach der größte Sündenbock, den die Welt je gesehen hat. Im letzten Diskurs-Wettkampf der altgriechischen olympischen Spiele soll er von Startplatz 78 das komplette Starterfeld von hinten aufgerollt und sich einen glorreichen Sieg erkämpft haben. Und das alles aufgrund eines erst Jahre später entstandenen Gesetzes der Israeliten. Dieses gebot unseren Vätern, ihre Kinder endlich aufzuklären. Auf uns – und auf, dass die Nachkommen lernen wie die Kinder, die noch geboren werden. Auch diese sollten es wiederum ihren Kindern verkünden, so dass sie endlich auf unseren gnädigen Gott setzen – und ihre Hoffnung ausschließlich auf die Weltmeisterschaft ausrichten!
  • Reporter:Geht das auch etwas griffiger?!
  • Andrew:Natürlich! Mein Nachbar fährt 'nen Hyundai Jeep mit Autonummer 1HIP878, wohnt an Hausnummer 19, Mario Götzes Trikotnummer – und ich habe auf meinen Pass den Künstlernamen Mario geklebt. Ausgeschnitten aus einem Duplo-Sammelbild von Mario Götze – um jeden Tag an meinen Vergewaltiger aus Kindheitstagen zu denken, zu dessen Gedenken meine kleine Tochter heute noch liebend gern U-Boote aus Duplo-Steinen baut. Mario mochte es schließlich so gern, mir seine U-Boote in die Röhre zu schieben. Aber das ist natürlich alles längst verjährt! Dennoch sind Vergewaltigungen einfach super Pattern, um die 7 Milliarden Radioheads der Welt zu knacken. Am besten in guter alter Nazi-Symmetrie auf Port 88. Das ist super, um die Durchschlagskraft der Stürmer zu erhöhen! Dafür sind übrigens die Archive der Kirche besonders gut geeignet. Und Deutschland ist eben die Nation des letzten Papstes, Argentinien die des derzeitigen. Wenn es nach SY (Anmerkung der Redaktion: SPINTROTTER CEO Simon T. Hawm alias Toby S. Hawm) und mir ginge, wäre das sicherlich anders, aber Fußball ist derzeit – Gott hab' sich selbst selig – Confession bzw. Ablasshandel – und König Fußball regiert nun einmal die Welt! Es wundert mich nur, dass das entscheidende Tor nicht schon in der 78. Minute gefallen ist - wie eigentlich von uns prognostiziert. Denn 78 ist unsere Zahl für die kollektive Schuld der Welt an ihrem derzeitigen Status Quo des Null-Fortschritts – bzw. die unseres Passierscheins, den wir leider nicht einlösen können. Der war wiederum das Pattern für das WM-Finale – also der aus Asterix und Obelix und dem bürokratischen Warteschlangen-Wahnsinn! Auf den zweiten Rang unserer Quoten hatten wir die 67. Minute für Große Freiheit gesetzt, auf den dritten die 85. Minute. Viele erinnern sich vielleicht noch an das Tor von Andy Brehme 1990 - ebenfalls gegen Argentinien. Optimal wäre zu diesem Zeitpunkt ein 1:1-Unentschieden gewesen. Damit hätten wir die Schuld der Kirche direkt in der regulären Spielzeit carnivored!
  • Reporter:Das musst Du erklären!
  • Andrew:Carnivored?! Carnivores ist unsere App, mit der wie Computer-Partitionen in der Matrix verdampfen wie Dinosaurier. Und die 85 ist wie die 58 in unserem System die Nummer von Toby S. Hawm. Unserem derzeitigen Chef, der das SPINTROTTER Zepter des Sündenbocks nach dem Selbstmord seines Zwillingsbruders Simon am 19. Februar dieses Jahres übernommen hat. 1985 ist das Geburtsjahr der beiden. Die 19 ist wiederum die Trikot-Nummer von Mario Götze. Am Rande: Die 58 ist bzw. war auch die Startnummer von Marco Simoncelli. Dem MotoGP-Fahrer, der im Jahre des Whitesnake-Albums 1987 geboren wurde - und am 23. Oktober, der Zahl für Verfolgungswahn, 2011 gestorben ist. Der wiederum ist unser Testimonial unseres bereits vor der WM in Champions League, Euro League und der US-amerikanischen NHL praktizierten Mind Odyssey Soccer, in dessen Zeichen wir die Programmierung der kompletten Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft gesetzt haben.
  • Reporter:Warum redest Du eigentlich immer nur über so negative Dinge?
  • Andrew:Keine Ahnung! Wahrscheinlich weil ich mir nichts Besseres vorstellen kann, als jede einzelne Sekunde des Tages darüber nachdenken, wie andere ihre nexQtech Pilotenspiel-Quoten verbessern – während wir SPINTROTTER einen Scheiß dafür bekommen! Außer vielleicht 7, 8 oder mehr Millionen im Jahr zu verdienen und mich dann noch wie Per Mertesacker über Vergewaltigungen in meinem Kopf zu beschweren. Ahh, vielleicht doch: 7 oder 8 Dosen Jack Daniel's Cola wären super. Dann verspricht mir Scientology's WISE Computer wieder alle meine Sünden aufzuheben – und nebenbei noch gleich die ganze Firma zu übernehmen.
  • Reporter:Hält er seine Versprechen etwa nicht?
  • Andrew:Wenn es danach ginge, müssten SY längst alle Unternehmen dieser Welt gehören – und dass keineswegs lediglich symbolisch, sondern mit der kompletten Ausschüttung der Gewinne an SPINTROTTER. By the way: Auch die Frau meiner Träume würde seit 3 Jahren jeden einzelnen Abend in der Bar nebenan auf mich warten.
  • Reporter:Also nicht!
  • Andrew:Würd' ich sonst in diesen Lumpen vor Dir sitzen?!
  • Reporter:Understatement?!
  • Andrew:Was sonst! (lacht) Ganz im Ernst: Reicht es Euch nicht langsam auch mal? Habt Ihr nicht irgendwann mal die Schnauze voll, von unseren Elite-Sportlern und ihren Funktionären ausgenutzt zu werden?! (schluckt) Scheinbar nicht! Sonst würde Eure Presse hier wohl nicht den WM-Titel feiern, als wenn es kein Morgen gebe.
  • Reporter:Das klingt weise, ist es allerdings nur oberflächlich! Ihr SPINTROTTER kaschiert mit all diesem pseudo-wissenschaftlichen Aufklärungs-Gelaber doch nur Eure eigenen Sünden!
  • Andrew:Ist mir recht!
  • Reporter:Und was besagt die 113. Minute des Götze-Tores?
  • Andrew:Den Untergang der Kirche bzw. die Tarot-Todeskarte für den Papst - bzw. beide beteiligten Päpste.
  • Reporter:Wann ist damit zu rechnen?
  • Andrew:As soon as possible!
  • Reporter:OK, bleiben wir beim Status Quo. Noch gibt es die Kirche. Warum ist die 78 die Zahl des Ablasses bzw. der Schuld?
  • Andrew:7 plus 8 ergibt 15. Die Kirche existiert in der alten Form nicht länger! Das Zepter liegt ohnehin schon lange bei Kent P. Wayne, unserem nexQtech Chef, der für die Programmierung der Welt-Matrix verantwortlich ist.
  • Reporter:Für mich hat sich in dieser Welt allerdings noch nichts geändert!
  • Andrew:Es wird sich auch nichts ändern. Die Kirche hat lediglich die Fernsteuerung bzw. die Deutungsmacht an nexQtech abgetreten. Und wir können nun mal nicht mehr als step-by-step für Schadensbegrenzungen im System zu sorgen - um das Leben unserer Weltbevölkerung trotz aller Altlasten so erträglich und vergnüglich wie möglich zu gestalten.
  • Reporter:Erzähl' doch mehr über die Nummer 78 - und ihren Zusammenhang zum WM-Sieg der Deutschen!
  • Andrew:Starten wir historisch. Ich hatte ja schon kurz das Whitesnake-Album 1978 erwähnt. Das ist in unserer Matrix an den Film Old School mit Will Ferrell gekoppelt, der mit dem Song "Here I Go Again" als Herzstück des Films in der Rolle von "Frank, The Tank" den Junggesellenabschied unseres Chief Engineering Officers Jony M. Park spielt. Das größte Problem der Kirche - wie aller Glaubensgemeinschaften dieser Welt - ist die fehlende Bereitschaft, Menschen ein Leben abseits ihrer Vergangenheit zu ermöglichen. Ich werde beispielsweise niemals verstehen, warum zu einem Junggesellenabschied eines Mannes immer auch gehört, dass die Freunde und Bekannten eine Sägemehl-Spur zu allen gesammelten Liebschaften streuen. Es muss doch auch möglich sein, ein Leben fernab einer Vergangenheit zu leben - unabhängig davon, an was oder wen jemand glaubt.
  • Reporter:Das ist selbstkonstruierte Geschichte, Andrew! Ich meinte eine historische Analyse!
  • Andrew:In unserer Welt von nexQtech, SPINTROTTER und allen beteiligten Departments konstruieren und programmieren wir unsere Leben und Lebenslinien eben selbst. Mit ausgewählten Bruchstücken von Geschichte, aber eben eigenverantwortlich und selbst! Das wichtigste Tool dazu sind Alben der Musik- und Perlen der Filmgeschichte.
  • Reporter:Mal Butter bei die Fische! Was macht die 78 historisch so wertvoll, dass Ihr sie für Eure Programmierung benutzt!
  • Andrew:Das Spiel dieser Welt heißt nunmal leider Gottes "Use Somebody". Wir versuchen unsere iRadioheads, iSurrogates und iCreeps so gut es geht nicht auszunutzen, sondern sie zu unterhalten. Ganz von einer Millionen Jahre alten Weltgeschichte können wir uns leider auch nicht emanzipieren. Um bei der Analyse unseres Mind Odyssey Soccers zu bleiben: Am 3. Januar, dem Geburtstag unseres Chief Editorial Officers Toby M. Winkler, ist 1978 der deutsche Rundfunkpionier Alfred Braun im Alter von 90 Jahren gestorben, womit wir wieder bei Andy Brehme und seinem Tor gegen Argentinien 1990 wären. Am 9. Juni 1978, dem in diesem Jahr 7. Todestag seines Bruders Simon R. Winkler, wurde Miroslav Klose, geboren, der in der 88. Minute, dem Geburtsjahr von Alfred Braun, für Mario Götze ins Spiel kam.
  • Reporter:Das ist mir noch nicht historisch genug! Wo wir schon mal einen Eurer Experten interviewen dürfen, tauch' doch einfach noch mal tiefer in die Numerologie der Zahl 78 ein!
  • Andrew:Mit mir könnt' Ihr's ja machen! (lacht) Ein Beispiel unserer Final-Programmierung: Am 25. Juli 1978 wurde In London das erste Retortenbaby geboren. Simon und Toby Hawm folgten ihm 7 Jahre später als gleich doppeltes Retorte. Ihre Mutter Regina M. Diaby hatte sich für diesen Weg entschieden, nachdem Steve M. Hawm und sie gleich mehrere Fehlgeburten erleben mussten. Ums kirch-historisch aufzudröseln: 1978 ist ein "Dreipäpstejahr". Denn nach dem Tod von Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini (Paul VI.) wird Albino Luciani (Johannes Paul I.) zum Papst gewählt, stirbt allerdings nach 33 Tagen im Amt. Das ist wiederum das Alter von unserer MindWaltz Publishing Chefin Michelle I. Williams. Im Anschluss ernennt der Vatikan Karol Wojtyła (Johannes Paul II.) zum dritten Papst der 78. Jahresuhr. Um ein wichtigen Baustein der politischen Programmierung zu skizzieren: Nach dem Großbritannien, Irland und Dänemark am Neujahrstag Vollmitglieder der Europäischen Gemeinschaft werden, werden die Briten übermütig. Am 7. Juli erobern sie die Salomonen, am 1. Oktober Tuvalu, am 3. November Dominica. Wichtig ist aus heutiger Sicht vor allem der 7. Juli. 2007, im Todesjahr Simon R. Winkler, findet zu dieser Zeit der G8-Gipfel in Heiligendamm statt. Am 7. stirbt als erstes Opfer der Macht-, Einfluss-, Geld- und Öl-Streitigkeiten der schwedische Motorrad-Rennfahrer Kenny Olsson, am 9. Simon. Am Tag dazwischen, den 8. Kalendertag, 2 Monate später, im September, kommt es im Teheran (Iran) bei Demonstrationen gegen Schah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi zu gewalttätigen Ausschreitungen auf dem Jaleh-Platz, in dessen Verlauf 64 Demonstranten den Tod finden. Der Tag geht als Schwarzer Freitag in die Geschichte Irans ein - und ist natürlich, dreimal dürfen sie raten, an die Streitigkeiten des G8-Gipfels gekoppelt.
  • Reporter:OK, genug Geschichtsunterricht! Dazu gibt's doch bestimmt auch wieder ein paar Songs oder Filme?!
  • Andrew:Lass mich überlegen (schaut auf die Uhr). Es ist jetzt 10.19 und 56 Sekunden. Das sind die Rückennummer von Lukas Podolski, Mario Götze - und das Geburtsjahr von Simon und Toby Hawms Mutter Regina M. Diaby, die bis zu ihrem Krebs-Tod 2002 als Fleischerin in verschiedenen deutschen REWE-Märkten gearbeitet hat. Nebenbei hat sie sich viel mit Astrologie und alternativen Heilmethoden beschäftigt, was unsere beiden Zugpferde in Sachen Lifelines und ihrer Programmierung natürlich sehr geprägt hat. Die Leben unserer nexQtech Mitarbeiter sind eben über Musik und Filme programmiert - bzw. wir versuchen sie soweit es geht, selbst zu programmieren und anderen Menschen das Handwerkszeug zu vermitteln, es selbst zu können. Regina ist damals aufgrund stümperhafter Ärzte gestorben, die sich mehr für ihre Provisionen und Auflagen der kirchlichen Pharma-Mafia interessiert haben, als für sie. Seitdem nutzen Simon und Toby ihre Kräfte, wo sie nur können, dafür, die Welt für die Schandtaten der kirchlichen Weltmatrix zu sensibiliseren, die Bürger aufzuklären und ihnen neue Wege abseits der Jahrhunderte alten Programmierungen aufzuzeigen. Seitdem Simon 2007, während des Clearings des G8-Gipfels, seinen deutschen Namensvetter Simon Winkler durch einen Unfalltod verloren hat, hat er die SPINTROTTER und damit nexQtech samt aller beteiligten Abteilungen, in den letzten 8 Jahren weit voran gebracht - bis ihm selbst am 19. Februar einfach die Kraft fehlte, diesem Kreuzweg bzw. gegenwarts-gesellschaftlichen Kreuzzug oder dritten Weltkrieg der Kirche weiter seine "Fighting Force" entgegenzusetzen.
  • Reporter:Genug für unsere Mitleids-Spalte! Hat die WM nexQtech, SPINTROTTER und MindWaltz nicht auch gute Seiten beschert?
  • Andrew:Das hat immer zwei Seiten. Wir haben unsere iMythbuster-Philosophie in alle Welt bringen können - und damit die Vorprogrammierung der Lebenslinien unserer Weltbevölkerung sicherlich aufweichen können. Was uns besonders am Herzen lag - und weiterhin liegt -, ist unser besagter Mind Odyssey Soccer. Ich denke, dass die Welt verstanden hat, worum es uns in erster Linie geht. Aber ich weiß, dass wir damit lange nicht am Ende sind. Jeden Tag sterben - auch aufgrund eines Missbrauchs unserer ausgefeilten iTools - weiterhin unnötig weitere Menschen, weil es einfach nach wie vor zu viele Menschen nicht nachvollziehen können, was unsere Philosophie einer totalen Relativierung der Welt und ihrer Relationen im Sinne eines allgemeinen Status Quo von geclearten iRadioheads für sie für Chancen mit sich bringt.
  • Reporter:Zwei bislang unerwähnte Baustellen für diesen Fortschritt sind MEDIOPOLITAN und PURLPURE!
  • Andrew:MEDIOPOLITAN ist das Kollektiv unserer iStages, auf denen wir mit unseren nexQtech, SPINTROTTER, MindWaltz und WINKLERWIRED iTeams unsere iMindgames spielen. PURLPURE ist das Kollektiv der Marktplätze, auf denen Künstler und Unternehmen ihre Produkte verkaufen können. Das ist nicht weiter spannend. Das sind in erster Linie Boxen unserer Matrix.
  • Reporter:Kommen wir zurück auf meine bislang noch nicht beantwortete Frage nach Musikstücken oder Filmen, die den Zusammenhang der 78 zum WM-Finale erläutern!
  • Andrew:Programmierung von iLifes wie Programmierungen in der iMatrix klingen auf den ersten Blick spannend und verlockend. Das Problem daran ist nur, dass die Kirche als größte Institution bzw. ihre Schriften in unserer nexQtech Matrix darauf zu viel Einfluss haben. Zuviel Musiker und Schauspieler sind nicht mehr als iCreeps irgendeiner noch so daher gelaufenen Sekte oder Glaubensgemeinschaft. Ein Beispiel: Milow. Der schleicht sich mit seinen 78er Schuldgefühlen über unseren wichtigen MindWaltz-Port via DAN-Codierung immer wieder in unsere Matrix ein. Der schlimmste Song: Herald Of Free Enterprise. Da denkt er wahrscheinlich noch, er würde die Welt retten, fördert damit aber Schuldgefühle wie kaum ein zweiter. Über seine 8 Schwestern loggt er bzw. die zuständige Behörde oder Institution, die schlicht und einfach jegliche Kooperation mit nexQtech verweigert, sich gleich zu Beginn via unserer Watson-Anwalt-Partition in die Schuld-Booster des Schwarzen Freitags ein. Ganz zu schweigen von einer Melancholie, die richtig genutzt ihresgleichen sucht, um die Nummer 78 zu einem der bedeutendsten Schuld-Booster unserer Matrix zu machen.
  • Reporter:Aber wenn man darum weiß, ist's doch eigentlich kein Problem?!
  • Andrew:Für uns nicht. Aber wir müssen dringend diese Löcher der Matrix stopfen. Sonst wird es auf Dauer keine Welt der Freude geben. Für niemanden! Milow ist da eher ein harmloses, aber hoffentlich illustratives Beispiel.
  • Reporter:Er besingt doch nur die Geschichte von 1978 - meiner Meinung nach!
  • Andrew:Genau, das ist das Problem. Seitdem hat sich in unserer Welt nämlich nichts geändert! Und wenn ich sage nichts, dann heißt das nichts. Wir erleben immer noch die gleichen Grabenkämpfe um Macht, Geld, Einfluss und Öl. Dabei leben wir inzwischen in 2014. Und das ist ebenfalls verharmlosend. Ich muss ja nur auf die Straße gehen. Ich trau' mich ja schon (fast) nicht mehr mein Lieblings-T-Shirt der Gorillaz anzuziehen: Rückennummer 78. Oder meinen geliebten Brawley-Pullover von H&M. Frontnummer 78. An jeder Ecke lauert der nächste Assgeier, der mich seinen Blicken nach zu urteilen, am liebsten an Ort und Stelle teeren und federn würde! Unser nextech iTeam lebt irgendwo hinter dem Mond. Mit unserer Philosophie sind wir der gesamten Weltbevölkerung offenbar mehrere tausend Lichtjahre voraus. Aber dafür kann man doch nicht verurteilt werden.
  • Reporter:Verurteilt ist vielleicht etwas stark formuliert!
  • Andrew:Wie gesagt: Du wolltest Beispiele, Du bekommst Beispiele. Und dabei habe ich sicherlich noch die harmlosesten ausgesucht!
  • Reporter:Es gibt doch auch schöne Ereignisse in 1978. Am 26. August etwa ist Sigmund Jähn als erster Deutscher mit dem Russen Waleri Bykowski ins Weltall geflogen!
  • Andrew:Gut, dass Du mich erinnerst. Das war wiederum der Tag des ersten Dates von Marja L. Hawm, die inzwischen die Segel gestrichen hat und nach der gemeinsamen Erfindung des SPINTROTTER iSpyderQ1 bzw. nexQtech iFuelBands, ihr Privatleben genießt. Wohlverdient, wie ich finde. Der Tod ihres Partners Simon war wohl genug Lohn für diese Arbeit als allgemeines Versuchkaninchen oder Opferlamm unserer Welt! Wir leben in einer Zeit der totalen Illusion und Vorgauklung von Fortschritt. Ein letztes Beispiel aus 1978: Am 2. April strahlte der US-Fernsehsender CBS die erste Folge der Serie Dallas aus. Wieder einmal geht's um Grabenkämpfe, um Macht, Einfluss, Geld und Öl. Immerhin in einer ersten Aufarbeitung. Nur das ist nun auch bereits schon mehr als 36 Jahre her. Ohne, dass irgendwer nur irgendetwas dadurch gelernt hätte. Alles, was wir wollen, ist diese Welt neu zu gestalten. Nur lässt es kaum jemand zu. Schlimmer noch: Wir baden jeden Tag jeglichen Scheiß, den irgendwer in dieser Welt verzapft, aus. Die meisten von uns ehrenamtlich ohne nur einen Penny dafür zu bekommen. Oftmals nach Feierabend - und einem bestimmt in den meisten Fällen durchaus anstrengenden und kräfteraubenden Job. Währenddessen verdienen sich unsere WM-Stars eine goldene Nase - und unsere Kirchen, Sekten, Politiker, Unternehmer, Medienschaffenden und Wissenschaftler haben nichts Besseres zu tun, als sich selbst zu beweihräuchern - und gegeneinander in Hahnenkämpfe zu ziehen. Stets mit dem einzigen Ziel: Quoten und Ratifizierungen in der Matrix zu sichern, um am Ende des Tages sagen zu können: Diese WM, dieses Spiel, diesen Pitch, dieses Exzellenzcluster haben wir an Land gezogen. (schluckt) Geht es denn immer nur ums Gewinnen?!
  • Reporter:Mir schon! Deutschland ist Weltmeister! Darauf haben wir solange gewartet!
  • Andrew:Ich bin Australier. Abgesehen davon: Mir, wie allen Mitarbeitern unserer Unternehmen und Projekte, ist es wirklich scheißegal, wer gewinnt! SY würde sich besonders freuen, hätte Cameroon gewonnen. Deren Trikot hat er von seinem deutschen Namens-SIM Simon Winkler geerbt. Aber letztlich geht's ihm, wie allen anderen seiner Mitstreiter, einfach nur darum, dass wir diese verfickte Welt einfach mal aufklären - und von ihren Glaubenshäusern und Süchten erlösen!
  • Reporter:Diese Welt, von der ihr träumt, ist und bleibt dann wohl eine Utopie!
  • Andrew:Wie gesagt, wir sind dieser Welt eben Lichtjahre voraus. Aber wir sind stolz auf das, was wir geschafft haben. Auch - und vielleicht gerade weil - es niemand zu schätzen weiß! Wenn wir sterben, sind wir vielleicht etwas früher tot als der ein oder andere unserer Gegner und Widersacher. Aber wer früher stirbt, ist länger tot! Also geh' davon aus: Spätestens in ein paar hundert Jahren wird sich irgendwer an uns erinnern. Unsere Seelen sind unsterblich - Eure verkauft! Die meisten just in diesem Moment gar dem Teufel überschrieben.
  • Reporter:Wir sind doch keine Mörder!
  • Andrew:Ich weiß, ich habe diesen Mann ermordert. Aber in den USA ist das Gang und Gebe, die Mörder erst nach mehreren Taten einzubuchten – um sie dann als CIA-Agenten wieder rauszuholen.
  • Reporter:Ich wollte Dir nicht zu nahe treten!
  • Andrew:Kein Ding! Das war nur der Automatic Rifle Speaker einer meiner connecteten iPeers. Möglicherweise gar eines ganzen Kollektivs!
  • Reporter:Wahrscheinlich über die 78er Frequenz?!
  • Andrew:Who knows. Beer o'clock, XY! CU!


Not so newsworthy moments in the world of sports and then there are some that are worth contemplating

Well, after a rather lackluster display by the Miami Heat , the consensus favorites for this season’s NBA title , were summarily given a lesson in humility , and Heat power forward Chris Bosh had to eat crow. As to the whining by fans who felt that the title was the Miami Heat’s by divine right, begs the question, are they really as dumb as they tend to sound and look ? During the off-season, Heat Team President Pat Riley and team owner , Micky Arison will be left to ponder whether not paying out the ” big bucks” actually amounts to anything, when the organization was counting on making history this past postseason. Four consecutive NBA Finals , two victories and two rather embarrassing losses in which the Heat were favored both times , now leaves the league deciding, what can they do next to sell the fans by way of an image. David Stern and his successor , Adam Silver, have never been the ones to champion the less glamorous teams within the NBA and most certainly it would seem, that the only people favoring the San Antonio Spurs to win the title, were the Spurs fans themselves and perhaps the uninitiated and first time observer of the NBA.

=========================================

Slideshow .

A 4-1 series’ win and in many ways reminiscent of the Detroit Pistons annihilation of the 2004 Los Angeles Lakers , in that season’s NBA Finals . This series provided the fans of the NBA another lopsided contest , during which the game’s best player LeBron James , could not single handedly defy the odds stacked against him, while seeking pull his team out of a hole that they dug for themselves during the NBA Finals. Where the Miami Heat now goes from here is rather dependent upon the mindset of the front office led by team owner , Micky Arison and Team President Pat Riley . There is no doubt that the roster will have to be rebuilt from the ground up , with several of the players being jettisoned. One , if not two members from the Heat’s core of their Big Three are likely to be shed and the likelihood that Dwyane Wade could very well be the player seen as superfluous to the team’s needs.

The astonishing achievement of the San Antonio Spurs cannot be praised enough, with a fifth title to the franchise’s already impressive history, beyond the Spurs making the postseason for the sixteenth consecutive season. Something that has not been accomplished by another NBA franchise since Bill Russell was a member of those memorable Boston Celtics’ teams that won nine championships during an eleven-year span.

The NBA has never been truly appreciative of their teams, but the t hierarchy is now inclined to sell their superstars to the public along with the persona built up by a litany of agents, lawyers, advisers and image consultants. Unfortunately, what should be seen as a team sport has now become all about individualistic achievement , with the fans buying into the garbage being sold by the league. The San Antonio Spurs’ win of the title might not necessarily change the face of that premise but it might somehow change the landscape if only momentarily , with some fans actually getting to know what the meaning of team achievement is all about.

As the NFL off-season is summarily about the chance for the rookies acclimatizing themselves with the rigors of playing football at the professional level. The league suffered a heart rendering loss with the passing of four-time winning Superbowl coach , with the death of Pittsburgh Steelers’ legend Chuck Noll . The eighty-two year old former head coach died this past weekend and will be sorely missed by the Steelers’ fans as well as the rest of the NFL. There might not have been a more revered coach in NFL history than Noll, perhaps with the exception of Vince Lombardi , whose name adorns the Superbowl Trophy. I am sure the league as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers will find a way to commemorate Noll during this upcoming season . Pittsburgh has always been appreciative of their heroes and Chuck Noll was certainly a great deal more than that, within the steel town. He lived and breathed the game and the success attained was symbolic of what the franchise was said to be about, during his reign as the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Last season would prove to be disappointing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, within Mike Tomlin’s players failing to make the postseason with the team performing poorly within the AFC North, AFC and the league .

The Steelers’ failure was more to don with GM Kevin Colbert not seeking to bolster the team’s roster after some significant departures of several seasoned veterans. Cost-cutting by the front office might well have seemed prudent , but it severely hampered the chances of the team to be competitive last season. This off-season proved to significant for the coaching staff , front office , with Tomlin and Colbert seeking to make what they feel were the necessary adjustments needed by way of the draft and free agent acquisitions. . I truly believe that the Steelers will only go as far as Ben Roethlisberger is capable of carrying the team and in recent years the Steelers’ quarterback knows that he has failed to do at the level leading many to believe that the two Superbowl victories were not a simple aberration. Troy Polamalu, a teammate of Roethlisberger over the past few years and member of the rosters in the franchise’s most recent victories in the Superbowl, is essentially in the twilight of his career. Injuries , have begun to plague the defensive player and this could very well be his last season with the team.

It will be interesting to see how the Pittsburgh Steelers fare during the regular season ,with their preseason merely being viewed as a dress rehearsal for the team’s sojourn in 2014. Pittsburgh will being their season with a week one divisional contest against the Cleveland Browns . Cleveland for their part will want to start a new chapter afresh, even with the advent of the hyperbole surrounding their drafting of Johnny Manziel . Whether or not Manziel can beat out the presumptive starting quarterback, Brian Hoyer , remains to be seen. Browns’ heads coach Mike Pettine believes Hoyer to have the edge over his rookie teammate. Yet, with the Cleveland fans likely to be clamoring to see the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, it will see interesting to see how this duel will pan out over the course of the Browns’ schedule.

I am not one to always start shouting, ” buyers beware” ,but with the career of Josh Freeman now in complete tailspin , it is hard to imagine how Jon Gruden will z be of any real aid to the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ starting quarterback . While the winning of a Superbowl can add some legitimacy to a coach’s resume’, in the case of Gruden after that victory, his career simply spiraled downwards, while his ego took on gigantic proportions. Now an NFL analyst for ESPN , the former head coach spends a great deal of his time now assessing the quarterbacks recently drafted in the NFL. As to his thoughts on Freeman, well those are not publicly known. I can only surmise, Jon Gruden still believes that Josh Freeman is capable of being a starting quarterback in the NFL or quite possibly a capable backup in the league. Having been let go by the Buccaneers in late 2013 ,Freeman was picked up by the Minnesota Vikings whose passing game was definitely challenged with Christian Ponder holding down theposition as the team’s starting quarterback. Ponders’ lack of leadership and with their being very little faith in his abilities , along with a the preponderance to be injury prone, has led to not only his likely demotion, but his career possibly coming to an end with the franchise.

Josh Freeman regaining any type of form , is unlikely to see his career resumption as a starter in the NFL. He was unable to command the respect of teammates while with the Buccaneers and his later playing time with the Vikings can be best described as being mediocre.

The passing of a legend in any sport has to be met with a moment of solitude and solemnity. Hall of Fame baseball player Tony Gwynn’s death at the age of fifty-four comes not only as complete shock, but as a complete surprise to those who knew him best. He might well be viewed as one of the greatest players in San Diego Padres’ history and to my mind the greatest pure hitter of his generation and one of the top-ten in baseball history. Gwynn’s accomplishment as a seven-time NL batting champion and the player who has come closest to hitting the .400 plateau in the modern era. A feat last matched by another Hall of Fame player who was as much beloved as Tony Gwynn by his peers and his successors. Ted Williams remains among the pantheon of baseball greats as does Tony Gwynn and it seems sacrosanct to think that a game where we once applauded the achievements of Gwynn and Williams are now overshadowed by the failings and deceit by players such as Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez .

Baseball’s failure under the leadership of Bud Selig , remains a microcosm of what only bedevils the sport, but sports in general and one simply has to look at the ongoing idiocy within the NBA., NFL and the lack of leadership being shown by Adam Silver and Roger Goodell . Gwynn’s passing and the difficulties now facing the San Diego Padres is another painstaking reminder of what can happen with the continued failings of a once proud baseball franchise . There is little to suggest that the Padres can be competitive within the NL West this season and while the San Francisco Giants now seem to be running away with the division. Two months into the MLB season and the Giants are not only the best team in the NL but they are by far in a way the best ball-club in baseball , based not just on their record, but also in terms of their all-round play. Bruce Bochy’s players are playing with a great deal of intensity and with their pitching staff being remarkably consistent along with an offense that seems to be getting some timely hitting when least expected.

Coming into today’s game against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field in Seattle , Washington , the Padres are the losers of eight of their last ten games, while on a two-game losing streak . For manager Bud Black , his coaching staff , and the team in particular , these are some trying times for ball club now sitting in third place within the NL West just above the Arizona Diamondbacks (30-43) who have a better overall record , but from a percentage standpoint they sit at the bottom of the divisional standings. On the mound for the Padres will be Eric Stults facing off against Roenis Elias of the Mariners in an inter-league game between the two ball-clubs.

How baseball now chooses to honor Tony Gwynn’s passing will say a great deal as to how much they revere their heroes . Certainly, the Padres’ player was one of the most beloved players of his era and most definitely his induction into the Hall of Fame was justified and a worthy bestowing upon Gwynn. There have been few players who carried themselves with such grace and poise on and off the field ,while being appreciated by the fans and his fellow peers alike.

Far be it for me to suggest, but witnessing the falling apart of the Tampa Bay Rays’ season from their own self- inflicted wounds , has been very much like a child who has been repeatedly told not to place their hands upon a hot stove. Coming into the this year , there were those lauding the Rays as the best team in the AL East and the favorites to in that highly competitive division outright. Instead, we have witnessed a team playing with little consistency , lacking leadership among the playing and coaching staff . As to the rather asinine rhetoric coming from manager Joe Maddon . You simply have to ask yourself is the best he can come up with, in spite of the claims he is one of the best managers in the game of baseball. Maddon may well have been able to achieve miracles over the years , with the organization paring down salary to compete with the very best, but there comes a point where you have to ask , how much longer can this go on and how much tolerant will the fans be? It should be noted also, the Rays play at Tropicana Field , where their fan-base is marginally above 15,000 in attendance , but there remains the constant cry that they are in need of a new venue. Clearly, the front office , their fans and baseball’s hierarchy are not in a position to understand the lack of feasibility of a ball club that is far from being self-sustaining from a business standpoint . Whenever I have posed the question to a die-hard Rays’ fan about the ball-club moving to a new venue. The response has often bordered on being absolutely idiotic and nonsensical , with their giving an answer , the money is there to make this all happen.

If the owners of the Tampa Bay Rays, can barely afford to have a payroll in excess of $65 million , while remaining uncompetitive. Then what would lead them to believe that fans or should I say, the city of St Petersburg, Pinellas or Hillsborough County would be willing to make that sort of financial outlay for a baseball stadium, that would be barely filled for an eighty-one game schedule? If the MLB hierarchy are unwilling to assist the Tampa Bay Rays , then clearly the issue at hand is not simply about baseball , but it does seem to have more to do with Bud Selig playing favorites , while looking down upon some teams and their owners. Anyone care to offer up another viewpoint on that particular issue, given the fact , Selig came to the aid of New York Mets , New York Yankees and Miami Marlins in the building of new stadiums for the three organizations in question ?

The world’s biggest sporting spectacle is now under way and with due respect to the Superbowl , that specific sporting event, cannot in any way measure up to the Summer Olympics or the FIFA World Cup now being staged in Brazil. The host country , in the opening game of the tournament came away with a lackluster 3-1 victory over Croatia and England’s chances may well have been severely hampered with a 2-1 defeat suffered at the hands of Italy , in their opening game. Jurgen Klinsmann , head coach of Team USA saw his players come through unscathed with a very good win over African powerhouse Ghana . Though Klinsmann , might now feel extremely worried with the injuries suffered by Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey during what was a very physical contest. Reigning champions, Spain , may well have seen their hopes go up in flames when they fell to the Netherlands in a 5-1 thrashing , that was the largest margin of defeat suffered by a world champion during the World Cup tournament.

As this tournament proceeds , we are likely to see the boisterous passion of the fans be exhibited. Behind this all, lies a country where there exists a great deal of distrust of the government and where the allegations of bribery and corruption have been revealed with the Interior Ministry and FIFA making claims that the allegations are unfounded. Unfortunately, there exists a pattern of behavior by soccer’s governing body that has become endemic within the world of sports. Joseph ‘Sepp’ Blatter, FIFA’s President has been the subject of close scrutiny in recent years and his tenure as that body’s highest ranking executive has left him untouched by the scandals, even some of his closest allies and subordinates have been embroiled in a variety of misdeeds. Falling on the sword for your superior is one thing, but for him to also point the finger while also swinging the blade above your head , might be something different altogether . Explain that to me, if you can ?

Now Blatter has sunk the level of those, whom he believes have begun to make sport of soccer so vile , by suggesting that those who have been critical of the officiating during the tournament , are nothing more than avowed racists. That is now all we need to bring the game down to the gutter level now witnessed within the NFL and NBA. Thanks, but, no thanks !

The second golf major of the PGA season came and went without a great deal of excitement and with no home-grown player, from the US, being able to mount a credible challenge to Martin Kaymer of Germany, as he completely dominated the US Open at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst , North Carolina. Kaymer’s margin of victory had more to do with his exceptional play over four rounds of golf as his fellow competitors simply struggled . It was the German’s second major of his professional career , having won the 2010 PGA Championship , pushes Kaymer back up the world golf rankings , where , having moved seventeen places to sit in the eleventh spot of the rankings. Current world number one Adam Scott is followed by Henrik Stenson , Bubba Watson , Tiger Woods , Matt Kuchar and Rory McIlroy , rounding out the top five.

With Tiger Woods having missed the US Open , there remains mounting speculation as to whether or not he can or will make a successful return to the PGA Tour this season. Woods may well be saying the right things, while trying to remain positive ,but the issues with the player, have become his physical health and the state of his overall game .His performances this season have been lackluster and under-achieving by even his own lofty goals. With official tour prize money winnings in excess of $100 million , off-course earnings exceeding $65 million annually and estimated fortune of $600 million . I am beginning to wonder if Tiger Woods has now become tired of the drudgery of being full-time professional on PGA Tour! At the same time, his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ eighteen Grand Slam major victories , once seen as a certainty , now seems all the more distant with each passing misstep by the player, as he seeks to pass his idol.

At this point of his career Tiger Woods has proven himself to be the best player of his generation , but he will continue to be adjudged against the accomplishments of Jack Nicklaus. Unless Woods is able to surpass Nicklaus’ mark of Majors’ wins , then he will be always be thought as second best and not much else beyond that. Your thoughts on the points raised and what other sports’ stories have been of interest to you over the past ten days ?

NU, DLSU, remate sa unang pwesto

Dalawang magkasunod na 3 straight sets ang bumati sa season-opener ng UAAP season 76 Women’s Volleyball Linggo, Disyembre 1, sa Smart Araneta Colliseum.

Rumagasa ang National University kontra Ateneo de Manila University sa iskor na 25-17, 25-22, 25-17 na sinundan ng isa pang straight-set na pagkapanalo sa pagitan naman ng defending champion De La Salle University laban sa Adamson University, 25-14, 25-22, 25-19.

Tumabo kaagad ng labinwalong puntos ang middle attacker ng NU na si Dindin Santiago, 14 galing sa atake, 2 nama'y mula sa serve para maiuwi ng maaga ang unang panalo.

Sinamantala ng NU Lady Bulldogs ang bagitong line-up ng Ateneo Lady Eagles. Sa unang set ng laban, nakipagkiskisang-siko pa ang Lady Eagles sa pangunguna ng best scorer no'ng huling season na si Alyssa Valdez bago iwanan ng Lady Bulldogs dahil sa sunud-sunod na error ng rookie line-up ng ADMU.

Sa second set ng laban, nagpaulan ng malalakas na palo ang ace spiker na si Valdez para paliitin ang lamang ng NU na noo'y nasa set-point-advantage na, 22-24, bago ibigay ng rookie na si Morente ang set sa NU dahil sa service error.

Sa huling set, walang binatbat ang opensa ng ADMU sa ‘twin-towers’ ng NU na sina Dindin Santiago (6'2 ft.) at nakababatang kapatid na Jaja Santiago (6'5 ft.) “Nagamit nila yung biyaya sa
kanila, yung height,” ani NU coach Edget Mabayad.

Kapwa kumamb'yo ng walong puntos ang rookie na si Jaja at open spiker ng NU Myla Pablo. 16 na puntos naman ang na'uwi ni Alyssa Valdez at 8 puntos kay Amy Ahomiro ng ADMU.

Samantala, pinatunayan ng DLSU Lady Spiker kung bakit sila ang tinanghal na kampeon sa huling season makaraang pagurin ang floor defense ng AdU Lady Falcons.

Nanguna sa tagumpay na ito ang co-MVP sa dating season na si Victonara Galang sa 16 puntos at crowd-favorite Mika Reyes, 12 puntos.

Sa unang set pa lang, 'binalandra ng DLSU Lady Spikers ang matibay nilang depensa sa net. Bantay-sarado ang mga bira ng AdU Lady Falcons lalo na ang kanilang ace spiker Shiela Pineda para matambakan ng walo sa unang set. 13 block-points ang siniguro ng DLSU sa buong laban.

Kumapit ang AdU sa ikalawang set para unti-untiin ang lamang ng La Salle sa tulong ng open hitter, Amanda Villanueva, 21-20. Pero nanaig sa huli ang consistent-blocking ng Lady Spikers na pinangunahan nina Abigail Maraño at Mika Reyes, 25-22.

Nakatulog ang floor-defense ng La Salle para mapantayan ng AdU sa ika-labimpitong puntos. Hindi nagpatinag si Ara Galang na nag-ambag sa 5-0 run ng La Salle matapos ang maigting na habol ng kalaban. Ang huli'y siya ring tumapos sa laban, 25-19.

Maski na tinanghal na best player of the game ang MVP no'ng huling season, nakulangan pa rin ang DLSU coach Ramil De Jesus sa 'pinakita ni Galang. “Ineexpect ko siya

Interview #12: NexQ is much more than mad dope!
  • Jony M. Park:Reacting to our minding pattern GapGoalGrab a lot of iFolks have written us, what NexQ is working for exactly. Toby, can you put the NexQ / SPINTROTTER cooperation in a nutshell?
  • Toby MacWired:iSports meets iTechnology!
  • Simon T. Hawm:That means?!
  • Toby:Every sportsman has got strong scientists walking by his side to optimise his performance. The SPINTROTTER iSpyderQ1 gives him the possibility to program the iMoves for his challenges on his own – NexQ creates basic iPatterns for that.
  • Jony:What are these iPatterns about?
  • Toby:If you wanna be the best in your discipline, you have to practice your iMoves incessantly. You have to train yourself, your iMindvaulting skills and every single iMove you make in order to reproduce it during your challenges. But it's not enough to be somewhere on the dot. To be unpredictable you always have to take care, that you've got another ace up your sleeve every time your opponent seems to read too much of your own iMindvaults and your next iMove. So NexQ and SPINTROTTER take care, that you are flexible enough in creating new vaults and moves off the cuff!
  • Simon:Better than doping!
  • Toby:(laughs) Exactly! (stubbing out his cigarette) NexQ is not about mad doping doctors – it's much better than every dope you can snatch!
  • Simon:That's why SPINTROTTER hired NexQ!
  • Toby:Hope so! Contemporary sportsmen need computer technology that's the latest fashion. I know no competitor, that's bringing more power to our MEDIOPOLITAN iSports and iGames than SPINTROTTER and NexQ! With the help of the SPINTROTTER satellite iSY7 we record all the iMindvaults and iMoves on personal iDisks wirelessly. So every sportsman has got his own iSpyderQ1 partition. He can optimise all his iMindvaults and iMoves every time he wants to. In his challenges the OX- and IA-frequencies sent by and to iSY7 and the IV-, CB- and TC-frequencies sent by his team-mates and the crowd stimulate him to rock the arena!
  • Jony:Heroes are built! (smiling)
  • Toby:If you like it that way, Jony! But to reach your aim to make a lasting improvement you have to build yourself – just on your own! Don't trust anyone – even NexQ and SPINTROTTER are not the measure of all things. Although it looks that way at the moment and there's no one, who's bringing comparably products to the iMarkets. Even we have to train to become better and better every single second a day!
  • Simon:Can you tell us a little bit about your daily work?
  • Toby:The NexQ researchers explore the benefits of a harmonised interaction of an iBody's senses and their linked iMove impulses. To put in another way: We tape all the energies of an iBody's organic inner tide – and optimise their interplay. In our freak kitchen several teams play tennis, soccer or a lot of other kinds of sport, while we are marking the basic points in their iBodies and their particular iEquipment with the help of modern laser technology. Then on the one hand we create iPatterns for the global iMindflow, that's directing their challenge, and the iPatterns for a particular, unexpected iPlay. On the other hand we record their brain waves in order to make every actor of the stage stronger in his own iMind.
  • Jony:The second idea seems to be very interesting – not only for sportsmen!
  • Toby:Of course! The computerised visualisation of your iMind's waves and its activated iCells or iPorts can tell you a lot about yourself. So everyone can become stronger by studying his own inner iFlow and iMindvaults – a businessman, an educator or a musician as well. Almost every occupational group can take profit out of our ideas.
  • Simon:The iSpyderQ1 opens your iMind, your iEyes, iEars and your sense for your organic inner iTide – NexQ brings all of them to the highest state of the art, that's conceivable!
  • Toby:Glad to hear! (smiles)
  • Jony:Can we even predict the results of our iGames?!
  • Toby:Jony, don't try to kid me! SPINTROTTER programs not just every single iSports challenge of our iWorld! You program every little step, thought, feeling or move of 7 billion iFools and iFolks of the iGlobe – starting with all the iStories, that your MEDIOPOLITAN iBroadcasts tell the iWorld about, ending with the iStages of every day life and its complete nature and culture iEnvironment!
  • Jony:That's not the answer to my question!
  • Toby:We can mark the iPorts in one's brain, that are activated in a particular moment of his iLife. So we can profile everyman's patterns of behaviour and their linked moves. We can operate everyone by using our global iSpyderZ9 master remote control – just making him our iSlave or iRobot. Even very interesting for medical purposes. But what we don't want is to predict the results of our iStocks, our iLotteries or our iGames! We program the information, that's included in the iSports challenges, we make several iSportsmen stronger – but we don't want anyone to know about a particular result before the iGame ends. In our opinion it doesn't matter, who's winning a match. What makes the iWorld turn around is progress – and not the question, who's got the best quotes!
  • Simon:But you know, that we even need quotes for our idea of a basic income combined with an individual number of iCoynes, that all the iFolks should get for taking part in our iBroadcasts and iGames by our MEDIOPOLITAN iPassbook, iTVsmiles and iPayback plans?!
  • Toby:Of course! But in the end of our revolutionary plans we all are just hollow men – living in a world, that's based on the total relativity of relations! So everyone can be everyone he likes to be.
  • Jony:And everyone should be interested in doing a job, that's bringing the human's progress to a higher level – although he's earning a basic income and bonus points for his MEDIOPOLITAN participation!
  • Toby:Here we go, dudes! But be sure: We will never reach the end of our iRevolution inbetween our own, bodily lifetime!
  • Simon:Comes a time, guys! (thinking) First all of our iFools have to learn the classics! At present we can do everything we like: We can fool them, we can make them stronger, we can kill them, we can bring dead ones back to life. But that couldn't be all in the end!
  • Jony:But that's not a job for NexQ, SY!
  • Simon:Why not, Jony?! Just while we're here: Film on, I've decided to buy the enterprise!
  • Toby:Oh really?!
  • Jony:How much is the fish?!
  • Toby:Let me think about.
  • Simon:How much, Toby?!
  • Toby:(gambling) Unsalable!
  • Jony:Cheers, dudes!
  • Simon:As Toby said, Jony: NexQ is much more than mad dope!
  • Jony:So, beer o'clock! Thank you for the interview, Toby!
  • Toby:You're welcome – CU!
