My First Rugby Match!

A few weeks ago, Dustin and I had the opportunity to see a rugby match at Stade de France.  I didn't exactly understand what was going on, but I loved the energy that could be felt in the stadium.  The Paris team has a lot of personality - not only are its colors hot pink and navy, but the players had a leopard print pattern on their jerseys! 

The Stadium

This is how the cheerleaders arrived!

Not so sure about these outfits...

The players are about to make their entrance!

And of course, the Goodyear Blimp made an appearance.

The crowd was really into the game!

I can definitely cheer for a team dressed like this!

Dustin surprised me with a shirt to wear to the game!

Sometimes Paris is beautiful...

There are a lot of things I don't like about Paris.  The language.  The dog poop.  The smells.  The frowns (seriously, do Parisians ever smile?).  The food (yes, the pastries are great, but the food is bland).  The pigeons.

But sometimes I am reminded how beautiful this city can be.  When Maggie was here, she took a lot of pictures.  And I have to say...some of them are absolutely incredible.  She has an eye for these things. 

Today is my first day without guests in about a month, so I decided to finally look through all the pictures Maggie took.  Some of my favorites are below...ENJOY!
