Art & Football

Well here we have two of the loves of my life being combined into one.  This amazing sculpture has been erected outside the Pompidou Art Centre in Paris and celebrates the infamous headbutt of former France forward Zinedine Zidane on Italian defender Marco Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup final… only the French!!

Have it!

Although it was a disgraceful action on the Frenchmans part, it does make a rather impressive bronze don’t you think?!

Back in Bradford

There was a huge welcome back to Bradford on Avon for Ed McKeever, the successful Olympic 2012 gold medalist this week.  The town was closed off and the crowds gathered to salute the local hero.

Another view of this would be that I now can’t have my morning paddle up and down the river without being overtaken by super fit young enthusiasts keen to make the Olympic squad in Rio!  Anyway, well done all the same Ed!
