German Professional Hockey Update #1

So my friend Karla copped 4 tickets to the Hamburg-Duisburg game last night. I haven't been to see a hockey game in like 4 years, so I thought it would be a good time. And fun it was, lots of people drinking beer and truly amped up for a bit of eis-hockey. The fans are definitly Euro- lots of singing and waving of team scarves. Scarves are an essential piece of Euro soccer-fan kit that have made their way into the hocky arena. Nice.

Hamburg jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first six minutes, only to have Duisburg exhibit some top-notch penalty killing and score one goal per period to win 3-2 in the end. Damn. I think Duisburg is lurking somewhere around the bottom of the league table, so not good for the Homeboys. The HSV (Hamburg Bundesliga Soccer Team) is sucking a big one this season too. Haven't seen anyone crying in the streets yet, but it's not looking like a good winter season of professional sport in Hamburg - except for cyclocross of course.

To that end, I have a race to win tomorrow...or at least someone on the team has to. Deutschland Cup race, so no really big guns, but we've been told by management that we "have to win every race in Germany this year". 3 for 3 so far, but all credit to Heule who isn't going to be here this weekend.
