Football Fever


Another picture from EuroDisney. Did I mention how much I LOVE Disney?!

I have football fever! France beat Brazil; the number one team got beaten by a bunch of old Frenchmen. There is a real chance France might win the World Cup. That would be so exciting! Paris exploded Saturday night and I sure it will be crazy Wednesday if they beat Portugal. I cannot even begin to imagine what Paris, will be like if France wins the world cup! I have never been in a big city when a major sports event was in progress.

I really dislike the way the Portuguese play because they are such drama queens; I definitely hope France wins that game! I hated Brazil so I am quite happy France beat them. As much as I dislike many things about France, I like the way the French players are playing; they practice good sportsmanship. I do not know if this is always the case, but from what I have seen, they act very decent during the games.

OK, in that case I'm rooting for the French just so Angela can experience World Cup Crazy Love We Won! We Won! Excitement in Paris.

If they win, please drink champagne for me.

I'm all about the Zizou. I'm not sure if I'll ever really feel comfortable calling this sport 'football' but I must admit it's beautiful to watch. I can't watch most sports on TV (ZZzzzzz...) but this soccer stuff is all right. And I like the celebration as well...it's hard not to get sucked in to all the happiness. Allez les Bleus/les Vieux/whatever! (I deleted my other post because I couldn't edit it. I'm a nerd that way.)

Yes, I went crazy with joy, too! I love surprises in the world cup. Let's hope France can keep up its winning streak - I'd love to be in Paris if France wins!!!

Well well... France one... How does the mood seem now? And well one more game to go...

I don't think we will know until we ask people since we leave on vacation that day and don't have a radio.

Julie-Thanks. The French really play fairly and gracefully.

Pardon my french-I prefer Henry. Are you guys going to a pub for the game on Sunday? Allez les Bleus! It is on the buses now.

Lotus-It is really exciting!

Expat-Hopefully you be around some French supporters on vacation
