Ligue One Action

The talk of the breakfast table this morning was the crazy finish to the French Ligue One last night. There are really only two English-language stations on the TVs at the hotel, and they are BBC and CNN. Not that the players don't appreciate knowing what's going on the world, but the stations do tend to repeat their programming every half hour or so.

Anyway, the Ligue One finale was last night with 10 games played, and even though it was in French, the players appreciate exciting football. The channel broadcasting one of the games was going a split-screen whenever a goal was scored throughout the league... That happened 43 times in 10 games. The ridiculous scoring rate created a lot of interruptions but if you don't speak the language, it made for great television!
