Allez The Blues

It is important to be reminded that our heroes are only human.

And we were reminded by our English friends that it is a great honor to see your country win the world cup, as many people will never get the chance to see it in their life times. So I shall hold on to 1998 to help wash down the bitter taste and look on to 2010



Here I am with hope and pride still running through me, minutes before the game, drinking Pastis and predicting our second world cup win.




And here we are wearing sunglasses to hide our tears. Ok, I'm wearing sunglasses to hide my tears, I'm a tad more emotional than my other half.

You are too cute! Sorry for your loss.

Hooray Italians! Not that I even followed the game but I can still cheer my people, right?

And Lauren, what did you think of Zidane's head-butt? It almost looked comical, the way he just ran into that guy's chest.

It was bittersweet that Zidane left that way. I'm only happy for my Italian friend and the fact that France won it all in 1998 whereas it had been longer since Italy won. As a Cleveland fan, I totally understand your pain.
