OTHER SPORTS: Strong Words

For language reasons I won't quote him here, but Lance Armstrong's line about the French soccer team certainly makes for pithy headlines.

Pretty good line, although I didn't realize it required testing for the condition.

Bet what the Italian player said to Zindane was, "Your mother and sister are lousy cooks." Famous French fightin' words. Or is than an oxymoron?

I don't think the French have fighting words.

Irish, and everyone else. Go to Google, and search for "French Military Victories," and then click on the prompts. And no laughter!!!

BTW, you've never heard the famous Norman insult, "How dare you call my broccoli too salty." It's even tougher than Paul Giamatti in Sideways saying, "I'm not drinking merlot"

LOL!!!!!! I think the last time the French won a campaign it was lead by Napolean.
