the chant i heard in the stadium today...
why the bercy stadium in paris!
what were you doing in paris?
watching ice hockey!
oh wow - who was playing?
france vs. canada!
and what a match twas. To make it even more interesting, i was watching it with a frenchman and a canadian. the latter being the "true" hockey fan. the former being a true frenchman - i.e. quite patriotic :)
and the best part of this story is that i was not supposed to go to this match. apparently these two decided to buy me a ticket. or rather - lie to me: that they had already bought me a ticket to see my reaction. if i did not freak out (which i didn't do) they would buy the ticket. and so they did. and they told me this after i got on the train to paris so there was basically no turning back!
hilarious. i'm glad they did it. was quite the match and quite the experience.
now to do that... studying thing... yeah... exams start in 3 days. so many barbecues to attend before though... time to prioritize!
