Sacre Bleu!

Last evening was spent at McDermott's Pub in Doolin, Ireland watching Ireland in their efforts to qualify for the World Cup vs. France.  Unfortunately Thierry Henry, having a stunningly bad game to that point scored a world class goal with about 15 minutes left.  You can read more via the Soccernet link on the right side of the page.  A picture showing our cheering efforts (complete with free hats) will be forthcoming.
The only good news of the evening (at least to Irish fans) was that Northern Ireland, who is rated below Rwanda in the world rankings, beat England 1-0.  That brought the loudest cheer of the night by far.
Good to see some things never change...
