World Wide Weekend - Part 1
While we’re still tweaking things technically, we’re also still looking for a nice mix of content. We don’t want to copy or link to the same articles you already read on your ‘daily round of websites’. You know, those websites you visit way too often. If you have any good ones we don’t know of let us know in the comments (Hockey related, so skip the Girls in Yoga Pants. Oh wait, post those too).
This is the first part of a post weekend league update. Just so you can quickly see what happened in the different leagues around the world.
Both in Spain and France there were no games this weekend. Both leagues continue on March 26th.
In Italy five games were played. For those who have followed the Italian league in the last years: a lot has changed. The autocracy of the Asiago Vipers (Italian champion in ’04 trough ’09 and European champion in 2007 in 2008) has disappeared. The Vipers got known around the world by signing CJ Yoder and Brian Yingling and have them play for the team in the European Cup. This year the team has not been the same (sponsors leaving, different roster) and they’re in the middle of the standings. This weekend Asiago played in Monleale and came up short (7-5). Ghosts Padova, the league’s leader, played the league’s number last and had a tough away game. Still, they came out on top and won 8-5. The league’s number two and three, Milano 24 and Ferrara, also both won – causing the top 3 to remain unchanged. Milano 24 played the Pirati Civitavecchia, who had Stephen Campbell (Mission Axiom) and Joe Doran (LA Pama Cyclones) on their roster this season, and won in a close game 5-4. Ferrara played Diavoli Vicenza and won 5-4.
