GREAT Practice!!!

Wednesday, 21 January, 2015:

Time for a haircut

After being overseas for five weeks, my beard and diminishing hairline were both becoming a tad unruly, but where to go to find a good barber?

Only one thing to do, go to the panaderia and ask Belén where to go in the neighborhood.

Voilá, just a block from La Hacienda was Toni's and my new barber Mariana. She was great and left me looking like a young Sean Connery

 Life on the Tramvía de Murcia

This is my main mode of transportation around town. It is clean, fast, quiet and cheap

And the things you see on the tram . . .

That's our QB Angel Clemente on the right.

As for our practices tonight, the Junior's worked hard as their Head Coach, Tanke Gil, put them through a very physical workout.

The Seniors had the best practice of the year tonight, a good way to wrap up our preparations for Sunday's opener 500 miles away in Santurtzi, near Bilbao.

As for our game itinerary, we depart Murcia by bus on Friday night at about 11:00 p.m. We will try to sleep on the bus through the night before arriving at our hotel around noon on Saturday.

After a walk-through workout Saturday afternoon, many of us are going to do the tourist things in Bilbao.

Sunday morning our kickoff is at 11:00 a.m. After the game we will eat and then board the bus for the return trip to Murcia, arriving sometime early Monday morning I suspect.

I am sure that Monday night's practice will be cancelled for reasons of sanity.
