I went to the final day of the Euro hockey championships today – Wales lost to Italy in the 3rd 4th play off and Belarus beat Russia in the final. This means they get promotion to the top group of hockey. They were a delightful team, really enjoying their game.

Cardiff Fire

Tonight we went to see Cardiff Fire play. They are 3 divisions below Cardiff Devils, but it was a playoff semi final game. I think it’s analogous to methadone – not as good as the real thing but better than nothing.
Game was pretty good – ended 4-4 and then Fire won in penalty shoot out, taking them through to final. We can drag the hockey season out a bit more!


We are in Nottingham for the final playoff weekend. After a dramatic comeback last Sunday the Devils made it.
Unfortunately they forgot they actually have to play when they’re here too. They were awful, and we lost 6-2 to Coventry. This meant a season where we were in the running for all three trophies has ended with nothing. That’s always the danger of going for all three I guess.
So, Paris Thursday, Nottingham, Saturday. The romance.
