Italy v France

June 24, 2010 — by Tommy2

Devastating result for the Azzurri, but Italy will be over it a few days after the Cup has finished. Contrast that with the French and the existential crisis its collapse has brought on. They’ll be gnawing on this for years, agonizing over what it means for French culture, society, and world stature — while the Italians are off chasing women/men, eating pasta, and sacking their governments. Maybe it’s something in the soil — Italians make happy wine; the French make anxious wine.

    Awesome post. Perhaps we can focus on the teams that are left in the tournament..maybe get some thoughts on how the Slovakian (South Korean, Paraguayan, Uruguayan, etc) national character has been exhibited by their squad’s play thus far?
