Monday just saw me cruising the La Croix-Rousse district again still on the lookout for the perfect croissant and cafe.
In the evening, our Cadets and Juniors both had solid practices on a very chilly night as their first contests near.
Tuesday was an interesting day that started positively with a good football/lunch meeting with our GM Julien Urgenti in the St.-Just district at a fine little restaurant called Les Caprices de Sophie. As a foriegner eating in this quaint establishment, I was required by custom to use Sophie's official black permanent ink marker to write of my loyalty to the fine cuisine that they served us on the ceiling. No problem, my inability to reach said ceiling was easily overcome when the owner invited me to just stand on the nearby table where others had recently been dining.
The main topic of conversation revolved around a very pressing issue, our latest import QB had decided that he had changed his mind about joining us and we only had three more practices before our season opener.
Back to the drawing board.
For some unknown reason, I was drawn to the nearby Cimetiere de Loyasse for a stroll. I find these ancient burial sites in Europe of interest.
Halloween IS Wednesday after all.
Our Senior team practice Tuesday night was in intense one. We are slowly but surely getting better each and every practice. Thursday is a National Holiday so we will not have a Senior practice that evening. That means that we only have two more practices before our season opener against our crosstown rivals, Les Gones.
We only had a Cadet practice tonight and we were missing quite a few players, still a lot of good work was accomplished, especially in the passing game.
Normandy, here I come!
