They keep scheduling games over the Isle of Man TT. Gutted. Would have done it for sure if it was a week earlier

We're playing Panama

They've got a good national anthem.

I wonder what my bride to be would think of a honeymoon in Panama...?

I took Mrs Clint to the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton to see us gubbed 2-0, courtesy of a Paul Peshysomethingo brace, on our honeymoon. Twenty odd years later she still hasn't hoofed me out.

My girlfriend's been wanting to go on an animal-themed holiday in Costa Rica for a while. Not sure the GAWA on their jollies were the animals she was thinking of though.

Gatwick-San Jose return (outbound direct, return via Madrid) is £512 on dates I've looked at.

Heathrow-Madrid-Panama City return on same dates is £470.

£160 looks to be the going rate for a return from Panama City-San Jose.

An interesting Christmas dinner discussion awaits.

Will there be any squares for us though? :ph34r:

I was hoping for game(s) like this only in rather than via Madrid

I have a big birthday at the start of May. I've tentatively suggested to Mrs Eightball that we could go to Panama to catch the game. I don't think she'll go for it...

Was in Panama in Feb this year.  Cracking spot but the local beer is watery piss.  Mind you it's so hot you will be glad of it. 

Usual central American deal, lots of poverty/ropey infrastructure but also a mad concentration of hotels and plenty of high rise buildings, the city is a big financial centre.  Plenty of good eating in the old town, and can recommend some spots further afield for anyone doing more than an in-and-out.  Canal worth a visit.   All US dollars rather than the local currency (Balboas).
