German League going Karneval
Little did the spectators know as they were heading for the halls on the Carneval Weekend, what they were about to witness. It is as if the league had suddenly turned upside down and results were out of some other league.

See the carneval in Germany, at least the western part where I reside, is rather a big thing. Officially starts already in November but it all culminates on this weekend from Thursday pretty much until Tuesday the following week. People dressing up in costumes, drinking vast amounts and generally celebrating outside regardless of the whether. This goes with massive parades through the cities where organisations, clubs etc. have floats there they keep on drinking and dancing whilst throwing candy to the kids in enormous amounts.
So back to floorball….judging by the results of the last weekend, there was some strange carneval-type goings on in the league as well. So let us get to it then…
ETV Piranhhas Hamburg – Floor Flighters Chemnitz 7:5
MFBC Leipzig – DJK Holzbüttgen 13:4
SSF Dragons Bonn – Red Devils Wernigerode 6:7
VfL Red Hocks Kaufering – UHC Weißenfels 8:5
Berlin Rockets – TV Schriesheim 6:7(ot)
Even if the Weißenfels / Leipzig -game stands out as THE game to see, I bet there will be a few more interested glances thrown in the direction of Wernigerode / Kaufering -game. Since both teams are still in a fight for playoff-position, excpect a highly charged game. Same could be said about the Bonn / Hamburg game as the hopes of Bonn might be slowly slipping away, Hamburg is by no means safe yet.
So let us see who recovers from the Carneval best…until then….seeya!
