Advent Calendar - Day 9

the 2nd anniversary of TBBWorld

Time is running so quick and it happened like last year. Totally forgot the anniversary of the page.

here is my very first post two years ago: Welcome

and here is my first anniversary post: The Baseballs World - The First Anniversary

The first year with 30 000 visitors and now over 69 000 visitors.

Thanks to each one of you and the special thanks to The baseballs..without those guys I wouldnt have never done this page ;)

The first logo and the look was black and blue. The logo looked like this:

When I met the guys the first time I remember I told them I have a website called The Baseballs World. Basti asked "is that one with black and blue". Yeah that one. It was nice to hear in September 2010 that not only fans visits here but also the band. :D
A little after that meeting I changed the logo to this current one. I am planning changes but life is too busy right now.

One special thing during of this two years that the guys filled the questionaire for the site in November 2010: *Digger *Basti *Sam

Advent Calendar - Day 6

Ba-Ba Boo-Boo (Into Your Heart) - lyrics

Let me tell you about my little girl
One could say that she is my world
But if you look at her closely once She's my sun.

It was a day I will remember
Even when I'm old and grey
It was a day that made me feel so fine
When I met you at the bay
Back in then when I fell in love
Fell in love with you
At the time I fell that my biggest dream came true
It was a tickle in the sunset
It was a glow deep in your eyes
You made me feel just like a teenager in front of jealous skies
Back then in the summertime down there at the sea
At the time we're getting hot
Just because of you and me

Ice cubes in the sunshine (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Melting in my hand (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Gliding down your body, dripping (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Likely in the sand (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Sparkle on your soft skin (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
On everybody part (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Pictures of the summer that slid right into your heart (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)

So now we're laying here together
Touching just each others hands
Our hearts are beating faster as we're living our romance
Back now in the summertime down here at the sea
It's the time we're getting hot
Just because of you and me

Ice cubes in the sunshine (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Melting in my hand (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Gliding down your body, dripping (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Likely in the sand (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Sparkle on your soft skin (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
On everybody part (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)
Pictures of the summer that slid right into your heart (Ba-Ba Boo-Boo Into Your Heart)

In bed with... The baseballs (Translation)

Müll TV (= Trash TV) In Bed with....(first issue and trying to establish serial with many celebrities) starting 0:40

Digger: Hi, we are...
All: ...The Baseballs! Welcome to "In Bed with...The Baseballs"
Host: First: we are friendly! We only want to show you at your best. Because you are just good.
Digger: Too bad!
Sam: Let's drink a toast to "This week's topic" !
Host: You're lucky! It's a very nice topic. It's...
Sam: You!
Host: ...friendship!
Sam: Quite important!
Basi: Fine!
Host: That's what I say.
Sam: Friendship is so important. There must have been a cut because Basti is answering to a question you can't hear. In the former GDR where he was raised all children had to be part of youth organisations. The different ages had different phrases for salutation. One of the salutations was: Friendship! So he has obviously been asked if he associates this word with these political organisations.
Basti: I wasn't part of this organisation because of my age. You had to say "friendship" in FDJ and you had to be 14 years old to join them. ( He was 9 years old when GDR collapsed) I didn't make it... I just was saying: Be ready! - Always ready! One of those very young ones...Yes, Klaus knows what I mean! But I have some old friends I know since being a child in GDR and we still meet from time to time. Like Sam told before.
Digger: Actually, what did you want to ask me?
Host: Do you think friendship is possible between male and female?
Digger: What do you think about it?
Host: No!
Digger: Well, my parents live in a semi-detached house and there also lived a friend of mine. I mean a girl. She was just my neighbour and we were friends for ages. When we were very young we played together on the playground, we went to funfairs together and then we got older and reached the age when people didn't believe us when we said it is just friendship. We were teeanagers and everyone asked me: why don't you make love with her? You can't just go out with her for the night and nothing else is happening...
Host: Was she good looking?
Sam: It's my beer! Hey, I haven't drunk that much of mine. Just wanted to mention...Cheers! Digger: I think she went down well with a lot of guys.
Host: So friendship worked with you both?
Digger: I didn't really notice if she was good looking...I don't like my beer so cold that's why I take the... (lighter)
Host: So you didn't look at her as a woman?
Digger: I didn't look at her as a girl I'd probably date. She always was a good friend. A female buddy you might say...
Host: There was no episode?
Digger: An episode?
Host: I also knew a guy who was my best friend and in the end there was an episode... (It's not my fault, no one talks like this in German. Even Digger is asking: Huh? )
Host: Yeah, well, when it became more than friendship.
Digger: Oh, I understand. No, we hadn't such an episode. But don't mind! Do you still have a best friend, dear?
Host: No, no one likes me. But I have a pet. A pig!
Sam: Oh! Digger: You really have got a pig?
Host: Yes, a hog!
Digger: A mini pig?
Host: Yes!
Digger: What about marrying me?
----- REBUS
Host: Dear Baseballs! What is that? I'm climbing on a ...??
Digger: Zuckerberg! (sugar montain, that explains what she's doing)
Host: And what is your association with that? Zuckerberg, come on!
Sam & Basti: Facebook! Host: Yes! The Baseballs just check it!
Digger: I haven't understood yet! Can anyone explain it to me?
Host: Are you on facebook?
Digger: Zuckerberg...what has it to do...
Basti: Mark Zuckerberg
Digger: Who?
Basti: He developed facebook.
Digger: I don't care about that! Two weeks ago I haven't even known who Steve Jobs is, to be honest.
Host: The man from the job center! Guys, it's time for " The Question in the Glass".
Sam: I've got a green one, please take...
Digger: Hey, not green. Green is a beautiful colour when you think about nature. But everything else that is green like jackets, cars...
Host: No, some women look so beautiful wearing green!
Digger: You look beautiful whatever you wear! But beside that green is an awful colour. And it is an awful question.
Host: No, this question is stupid.
Sam: How's that?
Basti: Better the green one?
Host: ok, who wants to answer?
Sam: Basti!
Digger: I just want to show it to the camera. There are people who write down their questions with a pen and colour them with a marker. How stupid is that?
Host: Hah...
Digger: Who has the time to do those things?
Host: It was me! In my bureau.
Digger: Well, it was not green! That' the first step...
Host: So Basti, do you feel ashamed of other people sometimes?
Basti: Such a subtle hint! Everbody knows that feeling. There are situations...but sometimes I feel quite ashamed for me.
Host: But you are glad that it happened to someone else...
Sam: Sometimes!
Basti: Sometimes people are in a situation they can't help. Then you feel a pity for them.
Host showing the board HA HA
Host: Now I would really like to have a coke! Bloody no name coke! Ok, I'd rather like to have a...what is it called? Oh shit! Cut, cut... Second try with Sam
Both: Oh, I really like to have a coke! Ah! Bloody no name coke! Host: I'd rather like to have a coke rebel.
Host: Ok guys,
Host: You know it when you were young, you always had to write: what is your aim in life, when is your birthday...
Digger: No, you mean these friendship books...
Host: That's what I say...
Sam: Autograph books were those you had to write in some poems or nice things...
Digger: "down and above you'll find lot's of love"... such things. But you're thinking about "My best friends" and stuff...
Host: We'll change it to..
Host: And you always wrote - my favourite star?
Sam: Of course Elvis!
Host: My first kiss was?
Digger: Wet! I had a cold.
Host: I'm good in...
Sam: Sleeping!
Basti: In bed!
Host: What did you want to be when you were a child?
Sam: I wanted to be an actor. I always said actor or singer.
Digger: There's such a trash when you're watching TV...
Host: Trash TV!!!
Digger: Yeah, trash TV, that's what we're talking about. Bye until we see the next round bed with...
Host: The following is called Association game...
Digger: That's wrong! First we have another "Question in the glass"! Basti!
Host: Right!
Basti: Do you feel ashamed... Host: We had that before.
Sam: He has put it back! What's that?
Digger: Is silence really golden? I think we (Digger and the host) are the poorest over here! Host: I suggest to have a minute of silence now! ----whispering to Digger: what are you thinking about?
Dog - BastI: Wau!
Garden shed - Sam: Mower! Shit!
Crocodile - Digger: Uh..uh..uh..swamp I wanted to say
Host: But you're good at it because you don't think!
Mama - Sam: Papa
Record label - Digger: money
Therapist - Basti: useful
Shoulder - Sam: Basti
Hot water bag - Digger: warm
Lollipop - Sam: delicious
Hair - Basti: short
Gameboy - Digger: gone
Berlin - Basti: beautiful
Lie - Sam: yes
Host: A wonderful association game! We coming to the end an it means: truth or task? Sam?
Sam: Task!
Host: ok, Sam, please carry me round the bus in your strong arms!
Digger: I've heard that we're going to get a surprise now! That is super! And it looks really super. Awesome!
Host: I will sign it also. One of these is for you and the other will be raffled. You can win it so send a mail to....That bed with The Baseballs... SINGING
Digger: That's how we arrange our covers! We just sing shoo-woop and on and on!
