The world cup is over. Zidane - despite his headbutt - was celebrated the best player. Some say the ambiance was hot in France during the whole show, especially during the days just before the final. Here is a GREAT song, some kind of joke about all the players, but the whole thing is about : ZIDANE Y VA MARQUER, ZIDANE Y VA MARQUER!!! (Zidane is gonna score, Zidane is gonna score). Even if you don't speak French, it's definitely worth listening to. http://mapage.noos.fr/angesetdemons.blog/fichiers/Zidaneyvamarque.mp3 Allez, on... [Lire la suite]

well I guess this time, Zidane's headbutt is completely justified! là au moins, on est sûr que le coup de boule de Zidane soit complètement justifié!

Frenchies are not happy. They felt they could have won the match and become champions of the world. So Jacques Chirac - French debilitating president - is trying to regain some popularity. He removed his terrible glasses, put some new clothes on, and here he goes across the Alps avenging the Frenchs! Watch out Italians, this guy is dangerous!!! Les français ne sont pas contents. Ils se disent qu'ils auraient pu gagner le match et devenir champions du monde. Alors Jacques Chirac - notre président sénile - décide de tenter... [Lire la suite]

There are quite a lot of Italians in Goma and Bunia. But quite a lot of French too... So imagine the ambiance with world cup final looming... We actually all behaved like civilised people during the week-end, saying generalities like "let the best team win", etc. But as the lights vanished, we all went our separate ways. Italians went and saw the match in their house, too nervous to share this with others. As always, we went to Coco Jambo - our favourite bar - to see the game. Italy won. The Italians are champions of... [Lire la suite]

There's not much ads on this blog. I guess it's time to do something about it. Yesterday was the worldcup first semi final. To be honest, we don't care much who wins. Just another occasion to spend some time together (and there's not much things to do in Goma anyways...) We don't want a TV, so if we want to watch the game, we head to Cocojambo bar, who has become our local headquarters. The game is not great, and becomes quite boring. I am sure Congolese must feel those things and they probably decided to do something about it.... [Lire la suite]

This may be one of our worst photos. But it tells something special. It was taken in an open air bar, in Goma, as we were watching the game between France and Brasil, quarterfinal of the world cup. There are two main bars in Goma: one was full of fans of Brasil, the other one was full of French! You obviously guessed where we sit... So we watch the game, looking nervously at this big screen, but enjoying ourselves and cracking jokes. The game was not as beautiful as we expected but it was great to see our team of papys...

Okay, football is not just about money. Millions of people are passionate with the game. But i's still a mistery to me how much people can talk about it, analize this and that, criticize any single move, praise this guy and hate another, and this for hours, days, years... Okay, I admit the game can be entertaining and the ambiance between supporters in Germany gives great moments. But c'mon guys, this whole thing is now all about money, marketing, ads. And it's getting worse by the years. A pity other sports (like Rugby)... [Lire la suite]

So the world cup has started. We're not football fanatics really. But if you live in Africa, you simply can't escape it. And it can be fun, so let's enter the game then. Last Saturday, we head for one bar in Goma, where people gather to watch the game. Cote d'Ivoire plays against Argentina. We love South America and can't refrain from supporting Argentina. But we're the only ones in the crowd... So we remain discreet... But not our neighbours who have their special ways of supporting theoir favourite team... The game has barely... [Lire la suite]
