Sales Sharks and Cardiff Blues

Today I took my eldest son to see Cardiff beat Sale (34-19) in what was apparently a must-win game at Ninian Park. I’m not a rugby fan although I did feel a brief confusion of loyalties. Sale is next to my birth town (Stockport) and Cardiff is where I have made my home. When Cardiff scored first I decided that where you are is better than where you’ve been.

The biggest cheer came from a pitch invasion by a man dressed as a badger.

The beginning!

Last night I saw John Ashley Long play some amazing double-bass with the Miles Davis Tribute band. His technique made me think of Scott La Faro. His classical background was evident mainly in the solo on Footprints (and because he had a C extension). Nice to see so many people at Cafe Jazz, particularly on a snowy night in Cardiff.
