Well, I was out pretty late last night, but the game was a fun experience. We lost (kinda badly) but it was still interesting to watch. Before the game we went the the Dirty Duck, which is a pub on campus that also sells food. I had a burger and a Guinness. The guys from the Formula Student team I was going with were Murray, Sagar, and Quirin. Murray's roommate, Dave, joined us there and we all went in Murray's car to Coventry to the Ice Stadium. We got to the stadium about an hour before the game started, so we hung out in the pub attached to the stadium for a bit. They segregated the University of Warwick students from the Coventry University students by making us use separate entrances. Since we were coming from the away team, we weren't allowed to use the front entrance. They also split the seating in half in the stadium, so Warwick people sat on one side, while Coventry people sat on the other side.

After the ice was ready, we all stood for the national anthem. I was glad to find out I knew the tune- they were playing My Country, Tis of Thee! Which apparently, we stole and changed the words to. Oh well, I sung the words I knew.... :)
Here's the version I know:
And here's the actual song:
|Playing hockey. University of Warwick players are in the blue jerseys.|
|Warwick team huddle.|
Anyway, I also meant to post the picture of the lamb roast I tried the other night for dinner. It was tasty. Really tasty.
|I got a roll from the bakery, and made lamb gravy with a hint of mint from a mix.|
