Falcons Junior Team Season Opener and Super Bowl Monday Party in Lyon

Sunday was our Falcons Junior team 2013 season opener at home against the St-Cergues Bulldogs. After about five months of practicing, it was finally GAME TIME!!!

#57, OG, Vivien Villard
"The Human Bullet"

His technique has improved so much in the last few months!

We play nine-man football at the Junior level. The Bulldogs are a new club and only had 12 players suited out for the contest. The Falcons had 28 athletes at their disposal.

We like to run the ball

 Missed a block

This would lead to one of the three First Half safeties that the Falcons would score.

The Falcons led 11-0 after one period in large part to the Bulldogs' problems with long snaps.

Bootleg for SIX!

Bulldogs Swing Pass

Run, Run, Run

At Half Time, the Falcons were in complete command leading 28-0.

 Slant Pass for another Falcon score

 Why is he Break Dancing?


After three periods, the Falcons were up 49-0.

 The Defense was still playing hard

I believe that shutouts are Fascist. Thus I was glad to see the Bulldogs score to leave with a little dignity.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs it was a case of too little, too late as Bron-Villeurbanne's favorite sons rolled to a 56-6 victory.

The Falcons are now 1-0 while St-Cergues is 0-1.


We were playing on the side field because . . .

Rugby was playing in the stadium

Cool socks!

Lyon Super Bowl Party

Tonight, ESPN America is hosting our Super Bowl Party. Our cross-town rivals, the Lyon Les Gones, will be there as well.

No shenanigans I pray!

We'll have a dinner served first and then they kick the game off at 12:30 a.m. Monday morning Lyon time!

That means that the game will end at about 5:00 a.m.

I am going to be a real ball of fire at the Cadet practice Monday night.
