football

So now that my African and South American choices for World Cup champs have gone down in flames (Costa Rica and Ghana) I'm going to smarten up and root for a European team, namely France. Viva le France! Croissants and wine and Maurice Chevalier and Jerry Lewis and shady business deals with Saddam Hussain and Sartre and 'Ma vie en rose' and Rimbaud. Sounds good to me ;)

I DO LOVE the French team. I was in France when they won the Euro Cup back in 2001 and it was utter madness. Too bad they flopped in the last World Cup.
I've always had a pretty big crush on Zidane (my dog, Zizou, is named after him). In my opinion he's the best player in the world, though he's getting a little old. And nobody puts the ball in the back of the net like Thierry Henry. AMAZING.

LA VICTOIRE EST EN NOUS TOUJOURS! Allez les Bleus!

i saw the brazil game and Ronaldo (aka the second coming of jesus christ) looked chubby and uninterested. so maybe brazil can be beaten!

yeah, Ronaldo has gotten chubbbby. My brother insists it's muscle, though.
