german fans sing country roads better than most americans


during the weekend munich made history hosting the first regular-season nfl game in germany and the atmosphere was absolutely electric. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 21-16 at Allianz Stadium on Sunday. but the highlight of the game was arguably the german crowd of 69000 who were on hand. With 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter, John Denver's hit 'Country Roads' played over the PA system. it was as if everyone was transported to west virginia university where the ballad has become a school fight song. the crowd sang every word giving a chill-inducing rendition of the 1971 classic. it seems that the theme is well-known.
