Couple of friends came up for the weekend. Caught the football. 2-2 draw. Heanor probably the better side and will regret not getting the win. Weather was bitterly cold!
It’s been a struggle to keep enjoying the rugby right now. Starting to run out of enthusiasm for all of it – my local club where I coach, televised rugby, women’s rugby. I’ve told my club I’m standing down as head coach and I’ll be taking a complete break from the game.
When I say a complete break, that’s what I mean. The plan is not to step foot on a rugby ground, quit all my twitter feeds and have nothing to do with the game. I’m going to spend from April 2017 to April 2018 just riding my motorbike and my Lambretta, catching back up on my longboarding and following the football. Then after that we’ll see how I feel. May never go back to coaching and rugby, you never know.
What trip to see FC St Pauli doesn’t start off with a trip to the Jolly Roger?
The match was great. Stylish choreo to start and a 90′ score to gives the win. Back to the Jolly Roger and drinking until the early hours.
Actually covered Minatur Wunderland this time. An indoor, incredibly detailed model. Bargain to €13!
Time to head to the Hamburger DOM for this trips slightly different German food. This time it was potato fritters with apple sauce….. Time for a quick walk round the Alster lakes and a walk through St Pauli to do some graffiti spotting. Then home. A real weekend as always.
