Suffering at the hand of the referee ...

Every competition weekend during the past thirty years, I have been a referee in fieldhockey. Even at my age going strong ... enjoy every game and the best part is indeed the third half, having a drink with both sides and sometimes talk about rules of the game and interpretation. Spirit of sportsmanship has always been part of my life.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.

I had a brief career as a schools field hockey coach and umpire while at college and my brother played for Ireland at u.23 level. Unfortunately I was never much good as a player so focused on table tennis, regrettably no longer possible since the loss of sight in one eye. But yes, sport has always been part of my life-blood, and I still play social tennis with the old fogies...
