So Far So Good

So, on the eve of the All-Stars Tournament and with no home game this weekend nor any midweek articles written I guess I’ve got time to do a blog and hopefully create a bit of discussion and have a bit of fun. Obviously was going to start with the Men’s Team, although should it be…

You know the expression, “things will look better in the morning,”? Well, they did! I slept all right, the shower was nice and you start to feel your way in to the whole adventure. Breakfast was communal so we got to see Spirou Charleroi and what appears to be a very fit, big and strong…

Belgium Day 1+

So, the real drama starts on Bank Holiday Monday with a text from Coach Forrester at 6:10am advising that Ahmad and Victor were stuck in Chicago having had their flight cancelled and would not therefore be arriving with Kyle from Belfast at 10:15am.
