Will Mick Jagger be watching the final? I bet he would support France, of course. :D

I kinda hope he does!

And then we can shoot him before the next world cup.

Not anywhere vital, of course. Just somewhere that would force him to watch it at home.

If Mick Jagger brings bad luck, does Keith bring good luck watching football? :D

Belgium looked very sharp today.  Probably the highest calibre of any team so far this World Cup.  If they had played like that against France, they'd have been in the final.

Agreed, they really looked good. Barring a few minutes here and there England looked like they just wanted to get it over with and get home. Though given the premier league starts in a little less than a month, I can't blame them.

Congratulations, France.

And well done, Croatia, for making it such an entertaining final.  You never gave up until the whistle.

France takes the championship.

Croatia looked exhausted halfway through the second half, but that second goal breathed some strength into the players.

Wish I could say the same. Politically, next World Cup may not be pleasant given the current tension between Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

That final 4-2 goal was one of the funniest (as in weirdest) goals I've ever seen in a major cup football game. :D

Well earned victory by the way...Vive la France!

Ggwp, France.

No one voted for France in our poll, which is pretty amusing.

And, now we get to wait for the real Women's World Cup.

The question is--is it required to wear a waistcoat when you ride the tube?

That's where they missed a trick, anyone traveling from Gareth Southgate wearing a waistcoat goes free.

A few tube stations in Paris will be renamed too for a few days. One of them, on the Champs-Elysées avenue, will be given the name Deschamps-Elysées-Clemenceau. :) (Clemenceau of course was the tough-guy war leader, practically a dictator, during the last year of WW1, and the father of the Treaty of Versailles).

Better than that, a few more stations were converted :)

Victor Hugo became Victor Hugo Lloris
Bercy became Bercy les Bleus (punning on Merci les Bleus)
Charles de Gaulle - Étoile became On a 2 Étoiles ("we have 2 stars" [one for each World Cup])
Notre Dame became Notre Didier Deschamps
Avron became Nous Avron Gagné (punning on Nous avons gagné "we have won")


Someone was clealry having fun with the idea at RATP.
