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.”

Well if curling is an Olympic sport I can see no problem having Boules included.

No-one likes a poor loser do they ???

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if itís in a caravan!) I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
