    The Germans want Lucca free, too!

    All,

    I received this e-mail at FreeLucca.com:

    Hello,
    we heard from the initiative that you started, supporting Lucca in the last days. We
    run a basketball web page called allballers.com - The World's BIGGEST Basketball Team! We are located in Germany,
    therefore you see, why we are interested in this thing.
    Our webpage is a social network webpage, just about basketball. Please send me a
    message about the whole scenario, that happened and I will put it on our web page. I
    will definetely translate it into german to let everybody know who is on our
    platform. Come on our web page and create a FreeLucca Group to support him. Let us
    get as many people as possible to support Lucca!!!

    Best wishes,
    Omar Rahim
    (omar@allballers.com)
    Is there anyone who'd like to throw something together that we can e-mail to these folks? Otherwise I'd just paraphrase what we've got on the website already and send it. I haven't checked out the site, allballers.com, yet.

    Interesting note...the country with the second most hits for the site (outside the US) is Germany.

    We've broken 40,000 hits and have about 4,000 unique visitors.

    Re: The Germans want Lucca free, too!

    Wow, this is so awesome. This is the first kind of grass roots organization of any kind that I've ever really been a part of, and it's really cool to see it starting to pick up some serious momentum. If you look at the online petition, the number of German signatures is growing steadily. Really cool.

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    I think Dirk is listed on the petition a few times. I'll bet he hasn't seen it.

    You are probably right, but the Germans are really getting involved as of late, so it's possible he has seen it.

    Re: The Germans want Lucca free, too!

    Well, I created an allballers account and a "Free Lucca" group. It's quite simple and mostly refers people to FreeLucca.com. So far I am the only member though. I don't know if the link below will work, as it seems to be kind of like a German Facebook for basketball, so I assume you need an account.
