So the Secret Wars Euro League has started last week, with Birmingham vs. Lisboa. If you want to read what happened, how it ended, and how it looked like, get right this way…
Beginning of the journey
Flight: Lisboa 19h50m – Gatwick 22h30m
Battle: Birmingham 00h30m
Keeping on schedule would already be hard, but with a 5h delay due to the Paris air strike, it just became impossible.
We finally got to Birmingham at 6h30m, way overdue…
After waking up, we gathered with Terry who informed us we’d have a different kind of battle. With the bar packed on the previous night, waiting for the best team on Euro Liga Secret Wars (our team), it was decided to enjoy half a dozen beers and the support of the locals to get it started.
Instead of 6 artist on stage, music, warm funky environment and a full house as an habitué, our first E.L. Secret Wars was on an empty bar, cold, drinking coffee and milk and with half the wall covered so that we couldn’t see what the other team had done.
The first drafts came out to the sound of Carlos Paredes. Mar, the oldest and more experienced in the “battle field” started to coordinate his team members Chure and Tosco.
Birmingham – a different battle
Amongst cartoons, monsters and words, our wall was starting to get shape and at the same time, some brave ones who’d been there last night started to show up to see what was being done.
The curiosity to see what was behind the huge black sheet that covered the Birmingham team wall was big, but still, we had to wait for the end of the 90 minutes.
They told us to be agressive with Birmingham but we had no idea what was coming…
“He Who Laughs Last, Laughs Hardest” So, this time they won 3-0.
Lunch and Graff afternoon
After a lunch in Birmingham Chinatown, the rest of the day was spent in front of the Lower Trinity wall.
Here, we’ve met one of our adversaries, Fourty Eight, since other 2 where out of town working.
Temperature was great and amongst beer and sprays, time flew by. The locals hospitality was ace.
Lower Trinity St – Birmingham
End of road…
To end up nicely going 150km/h on the highway to Gatwick… puUmmmMMMM!
Tire blew up. Another team building exercise done in a record time.
On March 20th there’s more @ Maus Hábitos. Get ready Porto…
