Here in the U.S., we are all gathering around our televisions to celebrate American football with the Super Bowl, so I thought I'd show you our experience with European football.
When we traveled to Europe in 2006, the boys loved our hotel room view in Bandol -- not because we could see the Mediterranean but because we overlooked a large soccer field. Soccer to us, football to Europeans.
At the time, Spencer was more into soccer than Tucker, but he convinced his brother to join him.
Tucker is wearing the Beckham shirt
Spencer is wearing the Inter Milan soccer shirt.
And the boys eventually made friends with some French boys who played soccer with them.
This was the kind of international experience we wanted them to have.
They couldn't actually speak to each other, but they managed to play some Football until some grown up yelled at them to get off the field.I hope everyone else has a sportif weekend, whether you're watching the Super Bowl or not.
Thanks for playing along and please visit the blogs of others who join in too.
