The French Invasion of Southern California Continues at Pierce College

A reminder . . .
There is no "I" in Team and
there is no "A" in Mother.

Just saying . . .

On Saturday night, I joined the Paul, Joanne and Nicole Sabolic to watch a Community College game at Pierce College in Woodland Hills.

Their son/brother Jason is the Head Coach of Pierce's 3-1 Brahmas football team.

Pierce was hosting the 2-2 Orange Coast College Pirates whose roster included a former Bron-Villeurbanne Falcon from France.

The player in question was #48, Louis Condevaux, a strapping 6'3", 210 lbs. Tight End.

Our friends from Lyon, Justin and Vivien Villard who were at the Washington-USC game with us last Thursday night, would join us tonight as well.

As is often the case, the action in the stands was as interesting as the game itself. The game was a sloppy one with at least five turnovers for each team.

A physical and fast OCC team prevailed on this warm night 35-7.

Louis is much bigger than I remember him. He is getting the chance to live the dream of every American football player in Europe, a year of intense training in the sport that we love in the USA!
