8 March – You nailed me to the floor with just one look

Danish coat of arms

Cast your mind back to 2005. we were in Ukraine for Europe’s favourite TV show. They’d had a revolution the previous year and were full of optimism for the future. We’d all headed to the Sports Palace in the middle of town, which had been covered in bright green cloth. We all had trouble getting inside the arena in time for the big show to start but it happened anyway. We were all seated. It was not really a surprise when Greece won. What might have been a surprise was how today’s birthday boy did. Birthday boy Jakob Sveistrup adopted the cheeky chappy approach and finished tenth. The clincher was probably the killer opening line…

Jakob is 45 today.

Tillykke med fødselsdagen, Jakob!
