Just in case you’re not a sportsing person, here’s both your sportsing and french lesson for the day.
France is hosting the 2016 European Championships of football [or soccer as we call it on this side of the pond]. The event is commonly referred to as Euro 2016, and since France is hosting it i thought it appropriate to nab a couple of “bière française” – 1664 and 1664 blanc. Or as i like to call them, les “seize, soixante-quatre”. The French national is team is referred to as “Les Bleus”, and the “coq gaulois” is their symbol. “Alles les bleus” i say, and “merci pour la bière”.
Yeah, i don’t know how i got a red jersey of les bleus either. It’s as confusing as anything the French say.
