French response to poor Tour results
You have to laugh at this Times report.
“Perhaps a little miffed at seeing Le Tour won by a Brit for the fourth year in a row, the Times reports that the French want boules to be made an Olympic sport in time for the 2024 games in Paris.
In an attempt to create a more professional image, the French are encouraging players to take training more seriously and have banned them from playing in t-shirts and jeans.
Not everyone is on board though, the paper says the chairman of a club in eastern France protested against the clothing rules by turning up for a competition dressed as a clown.”
In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.
