France is in
Wednesday, November 18, 2009
France is in the World Cup; Ireland is not; and Thierry Henry plays basket-foot-ball. Incredible as it is, the goal counts because not one of the 3 referees on the field saw the hand ball.
Was stopping the ball with his hand legal? Well, no...but because he didn't get caught then it was. Viva la France!
In the middle east, they say that if you do something bad and you do not get caught, then God is smiling at your craftiness.
Even thought France is moving to reduce the influences of Islam on their culture, maybe it is already thoroughly ingrained in their sports.
