Necrothreading much?

Article content

It's not so much that I don't like professional fellows running after a ball and passing it to each other but to the other professionnal fellows running on the same lawn with a different color of tee-shirt, whose God damn mission in life (or at least in the hour or so on the green grass) seems to be exactly yet reciprocally the same, as far as tee-shirt colors are concerned.

It's just that I can't find any interest in it.

Unless of course, the moving entities on the field happen to have at least two wheels, the biggest possible engine for the lightest possible weight, make a hell raising noise, burn floods of high octane gas and are two seconds next to convince you that Einstein can go packing 'cause Big Head Al knows nothing about speed.

Anything less than that is not worth calling "sport" and I'd rather take an inspired pose and ponder on Art with an A as big as a French cultural protectionism subsidy.

Got neither valves nor pistons? Then give me Rubens! Give me Raphael!

And give me Rugby!

Yeah, British rugby.

Now don't you dare to play the snobbish elitist aesthete on me.

Ce n'est pas tant que je n'aime pas les types professionnels qui courent après une balle en se la passant les uns les autres sauf aux autres types professionnels qui courent sur la même pelouse avec des couleurs de tee-shirt différentes et dont la putain de mission dans la vie (ou pour le moins dans l'heure qu'ils passent sur l'herbe) semble être exactement quoique réciproquement la même pour autant que les couleurs de tee-shirt ne soient concernées.

C'est juste que je n'y trouve aucun intérêt.

A moins, bien entendu, que les entités en mouvement sur le théâtre de l'action n'aient au moins deux roues, le plus gros moteur possible pour le plus léger poids possible, ne fassent un boucan de tous les diables, ne brûlent des flots de carburant à haut indice d'octane et ne soient à deux secondes de vous convaincre qu'Einstein peut aller chier dans sa caisse, à cause qu'Al la Grosse Tête ne connaît rien à la vitesse.

A défaut de cela, rien de vaut la peine d'être appelé "sport" et je préfère encore prendre des poses inspirées en méditant sur l'Art avec un A aussi grand qu'une subvention de protectionnisme culturel français.

Pas de valves et de pistons ? Alors donnez moi du Rubens! Donnez moi du Raphaël!

Et donnez moi du Rugby!

Ouais, du rugby britannique.

Maintenant n'essayez pas de me la jouer esthète snobinard et élitiste.

I own, built and run this place. In a previous life I was not French but sadly, I died.

Who cares about the Rubens link? The rugby link came out in vivid color. (It was a little dark in the Pave France link).

Ahh, the secret EU plan to confine all nationalism to sporting events continues apace. Seriously, where does one see the cross of St. George these days except international matches? Anyhow, the link might better be titled "*English* Rugby", since Great Britain fields three separate teams for World Cup play.

Well, as you probably noticed I'm not exactly an expert in rugby teams... I noticed the babes, but that's it.
Time to take sides
