BallinEurope is a full-time passion but not a full-time job. Our editor, Emmet Ryan, is off to Bilbao for the 2014 FIBA World Cup but the guy who runs the coffee shop next door to his day job is worried about the impact Emmet’s absence will have on business.
Last night I left my desk in the Sunday Business Post for the last time before my holidays and it caught Karl Purdy, who run the coffee shop next door, by surprise when I posted a temporary farewell from my personal account.
Left the office. I won't see it again until 16 September… getting oh so close to BASKETBALL CHRISTMAS

I’m in Karl’s shop roughly four times a day and, well, he’s not sure how he’s going to cope. I had previously warned him by asking about cafes in Bilbao, Barcelona, and Madrid.
