Wow, That was 10 Years Ago?

Today, for the second time on our trip, we had a bus driver who was showing the 1998 World Cup Final between France and Brazil, that was of course won by France on their home soil.

Some great names in that Final include Zidane (of course), Djorkaeff, Desailly, Deschamps from the Champions, and a Brazil team that included Cafu, Ronaldo, Dunga, etc.. the list goes on and on.

This led us to wonder... Was everyone in France issued a copy of this game after it happened? How often do they watch it? At this point, you'd think they would have had to convert all the copies from VHS to DVD. Right?

Also, just to make everyone feel old... there are players on this team who were born in 1990 and don't remember that game.
