Any babblers out there following the World Cup? I live in an old Italian neighbourhood in Montreal where there are also a lot of Latin Americans and other followers of the ball.

Yes, it is a big corporate branded mess, but I do like seeing attractive young fellows of all colours and body types, from big burly guys to little lithe ones, with a bit less clothing than our hockey players.

I've lived in Italy during the World Cup, actually Argentina won that year, but they are Italy's second choice as Argentina is the most Italian country outside the boot. Termini station was a sea of Argie flags. Friends had just returned there after the fall of the dictatorship and the scars were still terribly strong.

Now it seems the top contenders are the multicultural France that pisses off Le Pen and the Argies who are the only consolation for their country buffetted by the IMF. A friend is an Argentinian prof in France ... hmm, I suspect that he roots for his home country but keeps it to himself as the multicoloured France of the last World Cup was such a relief for the left...

So how does that "Allez les Bleus" song go?

Lyrics anyone?

Is there a link to a music site anywhere?
