Last week was a sad week. First, we lost five of our countrymen in a tragic and incomprehensible plane crash, then Fabrice Muamba had heart attack during a football game against Tottenham.  It’s difficult to set words on these things, but my thoughts first and foremost goes to the families and those who are directly affected by the accidents. But such accidents hits wide amongst people. Everyone in Norway feel sorrow over the plane crash, and the whole football family from players to staff to supporters to feel sorrow for Muambas situation. Luckily it seems that it’s going to go well with Muamba, but both situations puts football in perspective. Some things are just more important. The incident with Muamba shows that the football family stays together regardless what team you support when something like this happens, and I really appreciate that. This week starts no better. First, a maniac in France starts shooting children, then there is an avalanche of Northern Norway killing four Swiss and a Frenchman. I don’t even know where to begin…
