Sport "Stübner - pop star against his will": The pop star of East German football
Empire State Building shines flashing red to honor medical workers amid coronavirus
Each night through Thursday, the light will sync up to Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind." The flashing light was met with mixed response.The spectacle, which was met with both alarm and gratitude on social media, is intended to resemble a “heartbeat,” according to a statement from the building’s owners.
Jörg Stübner was a flock of teenagers in the GDR. Then came the turning point, pills, alcohol - he died last year. A book is now telling its story.
Three games, three memories: On June 8, 1985in the cup final. The 19-year-old Jörg Stübner scores a hammer goal. On September 11, 1985 in the World Cup qualification. Endurance racer Stübner neutralizes world footballer Michel Platini. On June 2, 1990 in the last FDGB cup final. "Stübs" hits again, volley shot.

The first game saw 48,000 spectators in Berlin's World Youth Stadium, the second 78,000 in Leipzig's central stadium. For the third game, 5,750 people were lost in the Berlin Jahn sports park. They experienced the farewell performance of a large Dresden elf.
Sammer, Kirsten, Döschner, Pilz then went to the west, as did the Schwerin Stammann and Reinke. Jörg Stübner, the pop star of East German football, stayed at home. Dresden's midfielder was only 24, had 46 caps and had no Bundesliga offer. In 1991 he rose to the Bundesliga with Dynamo. There he played five times, exactly 106 minutes. Stübner's only complete game was the 0: 4 in Dortmund on August 28, 1991.
Jörg Stübner died on June 24, 2019 at the age of 53. He had long since disappeared from the public eye. Matthias Sammer and Ulf Kirsten became unified German heroes, Stübner was considered a turning victim who was hiding from all over the world. Very few confidants kept in touch, including the Dynamo-Intimus Uwe card. He has now sensitively told and illustrated Jörg Stübner's life. There has never been such a beautiful football book on a topic as sad as Stübner. Unwilling pop star.
NFL uniform rankings: Buccaneers rise, Falcons fall with new looks for 2020
Here is our updated ranking of all 32 NFL team uniform sets for the 2020 season.Sarcasm aside, the designs of NFL uniforms in this Nike era, which began in 2012, are increasingly artistic and bold. The new threads the Jets debuted last year are a perfect example, as was the Titans' new look unveiled a couple years ago. In 2020, the Buccaneers and Falcons are on the board with new looks, and more teams are scheduled to come out with new uniforms soon.
Stübners lived in the yurt, then in Ulan-Bator
Originally, Karte planned a group biography of three Dresden football fans who had been playing at Dynamo since their youth: Stübner, Kirsten and Heiko Scholz. Everyone has their say. In addition, the reader receives plenty of geography. Map describes the sports sighting system of the DDR and life in the children's and youth sports school (KJS). He talks to the coaches from back then, he presents performance diaries, match report sheets, criticism and self-criticism in notebooks with childlike writing. "We were kept and trained like soldiers," Stübner recalled.
The photos show naive boys, whose youth are regulated by the drill. Scholz was the Kasper, Kirsten a bully. The shy loner Stübner mostly looks slightly distant. Trainer Harald Irmscher: "The boy says good morning and then good night again!" His big problem was homesickness.
Coronavirus live updates: 'Virus decides' when to reopen US, Fauci says; No travel for Good Friday, Easter; Deaths surpass 16,000
New York reported record-breaking number of deaths, travelers are being cautioned to stay home for Good Friday, and more news about the coronavirus."The virus kind of decides whether or not it's going to be appropriate to open," he said on CNN, warning that the country could "prematurely" end social distancing measures and then "you're right back in the same situation.
Furthermore, no GDR footballer lived at home. Father Joachim Stübner was a geologist and moved to Mongolia with his family in 1966 to look for gold for socialism. The Stübners lived in the yurt, then in Ulan Bator, prefabricated building. In 1972 it went back to the GDR, initially to Halle. There Jörg kicks at BSG Motor. The father, extremely ambitious, sends his son to the police and master club Dynamo Dresden in 1979; because of Jörg's homesickness the family moves in. Mother Inge is a hairdresser. She cuts the popperlock for the fashion-conscious junior, which makes him East Germany-wide swarm of teenagers.
The girlfriends change, the sparkling wine flows in Dresden's chic meetings. The young star flies to life, he himself halfway around the world. Since his Platini show, Stübner has been famous as a "lawn mower". However, his intense game wears him out. He lives in the dynamo bubble, privileged, mentally unsophisticated. The Stasi wants to woo him. He is afraid, but also decent, and writhes out of trouble.
Ranking the top 10 college football teams for 2020
Operating under the assumption that there will be college football this year, who will be on top? Several perennial SEC contenders top this list as well as Big Ten powerhouses.Although questions still remain whether the 2020 season will occur as planned due to the pandemic, operating under the assumption that we will have college football, it has the potential to be just as great. There are tons of teams stacked with talent and intriguing narratives across the country. Here’s my prediction for the 10 teams that will rise to the top of college football this year.
And then the GDR ends and with it Jörg Stübner's all-round existence. In 1993 Dynamo Dresden quits him for allegations of alcohol. He feels "stepped out like a wet dog". He moves to Saxony Leipzig, where trainer Eduard Geyer, a veteran of dynamo, wants to get him fit again. That fails. After that, provincial guest performances in Neubrandenburg, Pirna-Copitz, Sangerhausen fail. The parents divorce and he breaks off contact with the father. Pills, Suff, Isolation. In 1995 he almost died of a pill cocktail.Imagined future in the GDR
It becomes a social case, with Hartz IV rule set. Dynamo's President Ralf Minge, once his teammate, tries to help, but even Stübner's mini-job in the football school doesn't last. According to the skilled worker letter, he is a machine and system fitter. He imagines his future in the GDR: "Today I would be a major of the People's Police, would have over a hundred caps and a house with a wife and children." His golden hamster dies, the fifth; Stübner calls him "my comrade". He threatens a neighbor with the gas gun. The apartment is terminated. And so on, until June 24, 2019, when Inge Stübner finds the lifeless son in her Dresden apartment.
At the funeral, Uwe Karte delivered the funeral speech. Most of his book was written with Jörg Stübner. He was looking forward to the appearance. Uwe Karte manages a balancing act. He describes Stübner's life disaster frankly, but with warmth for this accident victim, who succeeded in so many years and then nothing at all. Every home game hangs a black and yellow fence flag with Stübner's portrait in the Dynamo Stadium. It perpetuates a boy who did not know how to mature. Uwe Karte sums up: "Life is not just a football game."
