September

Daily: 14th September 2010 - Hi there! My name is Amanda (Google also knows me as amandoloss) and this is my first ever post for sidepodcast.com. I will be keeping you up to date on everything what’s worth of being mentioned every Tuesday. Before I start I’d like to warn you straight away: there will be some footy news in my posts, especially about Liverpool FC, so Manchester fans hiding there somewhere... beware! But let’s get started with some racing stuff, shall we? Bruuuuummmmmmmmmmmm!!!

Daily: 21st September 2010 - Good morning ladies and gents! How are you today? How are you after a weekend without Formula 1? Well, we should practice ourselves, because there’re only five races left! But let’s not pull ourselves down and look too far into the future, let’s focus on the present. The very recent past wasn’t that kind with me (in terms of footy), so I really force myself to focus on the present.

Daily: 28th September 2010 - Welcome to the second daily of this new week. I hope you’d had a nice Monday and I hope this Tuesday will be even better. I like Tuesdays. Do you? I like this one in particular, because it means I have only two days left till my “holidays”. I took myself four days off and I am going to visit my Dutch friend in Venlo, the home of VVV Venlo, a football team you definitely do not need to know. Or follow. Trust me.

October

Daily: 5th October 2010 - Hello my dear fellow sidepodcasters! It’s Tuesday again and I am glad you starting this Tuesday with my post. Because that’s what you’re doing, aren’t you? You’d better …! We’re having a lovely autumn here in Cologne, I hope you’re able to enjoy this season without an umbrella wherever you are.In case you didn’t know: it’s World Teacher’s Day today. Are you glad you do not have to go to school anymore? I am. I hated mathematics. And physics. And chemistry. This whole boring stuff … brrrrrrrrr!! Well, I still hate it. *shudders*

Daily: 12th October 2010 - It’s another Tuesday and I am glad you’re starting this day with me. Despite of no proper football it’s been a quite sport-packed weekend. One moment … I have to concentrate and consider where to start … Right. Since I already mentioned footie, I shall conduct this thought to a proper end.

Daily: 19th October 2010 - Hello my dear sidepodcasters and welcome to my daily. I shall provide you with all information you deserve to know for today. First of all: Happy Birthday Heikki Kovalainen! Or “Hyvaa syntymapaivaa” as they say it in Finnish. I hope he’ll take himself a day off to celebrate as he’s been very busy in the recent days. Celebrate yourself, Heikki, because you’re a nice lad.

Daily: 26th October 2010 - Yesterday on a well-known team radio: Peeeep! “Fernando, you and the team deserve to read this daily post. You and the team deserve to read this daily post. It’s beautiful. Grande.” Peeeep!And who deserves to read my daily even more than El Maestro? You, my dear sidepodcasters! And since I’m still in party mood after Sunday, I shall only provide you with merry news and links. You may ask why I am in such a “Champagnerlaune”, as we call it in Germany. There are two big reasons why I just want to kiss and hug everyone.

November

Daily: 2nd November 2010 - Welkom op dit heerlijk dinsdag en ik hoop dat jullie mijn blog echt gaan genieten. Dus …Warmee zal ik beginnen? Right. First of all I have to explain this introduction which is in Dutch. How come? Because I’m studying Dutch Philology from now on (well, I signed up on Friday to be correct), and wanted to share this with you. Excited!

Daily: 9th November 2010 - On this day, 43 years ago, the first issue of The Rolling Stone magazine has been published. It featured an image of John Lennon. The first sidepodcast-post form the 21st October 2006 featured David Coulthard. I know John Lennon wasn’t a huge sports fan, but I can imagine David being a Beatles fan. Christine, I don’t want to brag, but I got even further than seeing Daveheart, as I touched Niki Lauda (and Valle Rossi wasn’t far away)! Hahahahahahaha!

Daily: 16th November 2010 - “What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when. I tried so hard (Alonso) and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter (4 bloody points!!). I put my trust in you (Ferrari strategist §%%$%$%&%), pushed as far as I can go and for all this there's only one thing you should know...”Yes, we do know it now. Last week we didn’t know who will be the new Formula 1 World Champion. Today we know: It’s Fernando Alonso Sebastian Vettel. I assume it’s Christian Horner’s best birthday gift ever.

Daily: 23rd November 2010 - I have to begin this Daily with an apology. Because it’s going to be all about football. Sorry for that, but since I have spent the whole weekend watching/speaking/tweeting/ and writing about it, I genuinely can’t think about something else today. I hope you will read this post and leave a comment. Big virtual sidepodhug for that! And who doesn’t like hugs? OK? Are you still here? Nice. :-) All right then, let’s move on.There’s been some amazing scenes in the world of football this weekend. Loads of goals in for all. It was genuinely raining goals! 36 in Spain, 30 in England and Germany, 27 in Italy and France and “only” 19 in Portugal, to name the major leagues only.Let’s start with which I started the Footie Marathon: with the Premier League ...

Daily: 30th November 2010 - Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!! Are you enjoying the snow? Did you manage to obtain some comfy, fluffy and warm winter clothing? Lucky you. I didn’t. I have to admit that I genuinely hate snow and this freezing temperatures, but I presume I am not the only one. The only thing I like about winter is winter sports. And Christmas with footie filled Boxing Day. Yeaaaaaaah, that’s what we sports freaks enjoy, right? Not this ... all right, let’s concentrate on something we love then.

December

Daily: 14th December 2010 - Hello ladies and gents! I am back. Did you miss me? Oohhhh, that's so sweet of you! I couldn't be here for you last Tuesday, but Mr.C helped out. Thank you once again! The daily was nearly as good as mine would have been. Hahahaha Joking!

Daily: 18th December 2010 - Hello! It's me again! Wow! So many exlamation marks! I think I might be spending too much time with Jaime. :-) Who's been having good time recently, by the way. Yes! Before I begin let me explain what I am doing here on Saturday. Well, Pamela isn't able to do her daily so I volunteerd. Only for you, lovely readers. :-) Al right then, let's check what's going on in the world of Formula 1:

Daily: 21st December 2010 - Hello and servus! Welcome to my last daily before Christmas and I am glad you have found a few spare minutes to read it. But since the countries in this part of the world are covered in snow and the normal life has been disabled in many ways you do have the time anyway. Unless you are a poor traveler who got stuck at an airport or a bus/train station. But then you can't read this daily anyway due to a lack of internet access. Unless there IS an internet access and you are able to kill the time whith surfing in the web. However if you really were and unlucky traveler who got stuck somewhere between A or B (or B and C) you probably would have searched in the web for some help than ... OK. I shall stop in here before I got stuck in my weired, far from logical, reasoning. :-)

Daily: 28th December 2010 - Hello, good morning, afternoon, evening or very late evening/night. So it’s my last daily in year 2010. I hope it was a good year, but I hope the upcoming 2011 will be better for all of you. And me. :-) I also hope you had fantastic Christmas wherever and however you might have spent it. As for me I had very busy Christmas this year, oh yeah ... I had to catch up with some sleep, watch tennis, football Champions League classics, winter sports reviews, previews, reviews of reviews and Premier League so I've been quite busy. Busy with relaxing. :-) Even though the world of sports and formula 1 particulary took some days off this fantastic channel provided my with some good stuff. Thank you God (of sports) for Eurosport! Otherwise ... I do not even want to think about it. :-)

2011

January

Daily: 11th January 2011 - Huhu!!! Guess who's back? It's no other than me. :-) This is my first "proper" daily in 2011 and it won't be less packed with footie facts than the other ones. Before I begin with links and other goodies: Happy New Year! I said it in my Spanish Daily already, but I think it has to be said in the "proper" daily too. If you still haven't had enough of celebrating you can celebrate the day milk was delivered in bottles for the first time (January 11th in 1878). If that's not an occasion ???!!!

Daily: 18th January 2011 - Hello aaaaaaaaaaaaand welcooooooooome!! I have to start this daily with an apology, but since I am swamped with work (plus night shifts due to Australian Open) this daily is going to be only about the very important sports news and stories you must know for today. I am really sorry for that, but as the new season is coming closer and closer there is loads of work at roadrunner racing.
