Vive la France

The aftermath of the Paris atrocities left a sour taste in mouths and minds. The delay in this posting has come from deliberation not merely a swift reflex. I admired and enjoyed the comradery of sporting bodies and fans alike. From the splendid red, white and blue of Wembley Stadium to Wembley Indoor Arena to the solidarity of the players from both French and English nations in the recent friendly match in football between both Countries. The imagery and choral endeavors of the fans in the subways even on that very same evening of bombings and shootings by the spectators casually fleeing the Stade De France.

One of the more innovative gestures of testament to the disaster was the Scottish team, Hamilton Academical FC wearing the French away strip. Sport and football wins hands down over terrorism.
