Saturday, 24 January, 2015:
Our team opted to leave Murcia at midnight on Friday for the ten hour bus ride thus "sleeping" on the way to save a night's hotel costs. We would thus arrive near midday on Saturday, check into our hotel and sightsee/eat our way through Bilbao.
After a good night's sleep, we would kick the season off at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday. Following the game, it would be back on the bus for another ten hours back to the sunny south of España.
I liked this plan!
Let it be said here and now that if any of you back in the USA doubt the passion for the game of Cobra players, then this road trip should change your mind.
Think about it, leave by bus at midnight Friday and return at 1:15 a.m. on Monday. Oh and by the way, each player contributed to the cost of the bus and hotel plus providing their own money for all of their food and beverage needs.
This unconditional passion for the game is what I have loved the most about all of my coaching stops in EuroBall!
