Merci Les Bleus

Just got back from a trip to Paris. I guess since I'd spent the last couple of weeks identifying with the French, the trip was an optimistic attempt to rejoice with them 'when' they'd won the World Cup. But alas, it wasn't to be. Zidane's moment of madness robbed the French of an almost guaranteed Penalty kicker and the rest like they say is history. Everyone I spoke to about the match was very philosophical, composed and gracious in defeat. The guys at the Concierge service of our Hotel advised that there would probably be trouble at the Champs Elysees so we choose not to go. Well at least we got a relaxing holiday.

ALLEZ LES BLEUS!!! They made us all proud.
