French Game Draws Melange To New York City Park

leave a comment »

Great story about petanque on NPR
 

The people playing are old, young and from everywhere. Biltsted points out players. "I'm from Denmark, we have a British guy, we have French people, of course. We have probably 17 to 19 different nationalities." The president of this local petanque club, which is called La Boule New Yorkaise, is Ernesto Santos.

Thierry Henry Fell in Love With New York City the First Time He Laid Eyes on It

leave a comment »

Great article in the WSJ.

Mr. Henry can't quite put his finger on what it is about New York that he finds so seductive. Part of it is the sports scene—he is a rare example of someone who can explain third downs, double plays, pick and rolls, and the offsides rule, all in French. He expects to become a fixture at Madison Square Garden, where he has friends on the court and courtside. Spike Lee, practically the mayor of the Garden's sideline, was a devout Arsenal fan during the Henry era. And the Knicks' new French signing, Ronny Turiaf, numbers among Mr. Henry's closest friends—he even attended his introductory news conference at Red Bull Arena, in Harrison, N.J., towering above the crowd of reporters to snap pictures of his buddy.
