If I'm reading things correctly here: www.cep-petanque.com/cepweb/eurocup/eurocup_pdf/Tirage_EuroCup12.pdf the men's division of the Club Bouliste Monegasque (MC pétanque or jeu de boules club) will need to play in the Czech Republic on July 27 to 29. First round in the Eurocup 2012. Finals are to be held in Rastatt, Germany in December. They actually won last years eurocup, beatin Nice who won the last two times before.
Poverina Yes, anywhere friendlier to train than MC where she was wedged in by the SA team. That's no way to be made to feel before something as important as the Olympics. It's sabotage by a jealous CC. Now I see why she invited her paesan's...we hadn't seen that Monaco had a prettier, younger swimmer in its midst! At least Angelique's youth is on her side. If CC can stay out of the way next time, Angelique should do well in the next Olympics. C'est partie remise, ma belle. I'm rooting for her!
Nice is producing the French swimming gold medals, so it would be silly not to try an train with them. Especially whan you have such a good coach around the corner. Muffat and Agnel are both training in Nice. Hollande came specifically to see them compete.
In my search for something else, I stumbled on the petanque results. Either they were there all along and I just overlooked them, or the website was finally updated. De MC boulistes came top of their poule and are now hosting the next round if I'm not mistaken. Slovenes, Italians and Belgians will visit Monaco in October (19 - 21). Results here for those interested: www.cep-petanque.com/cepweb/eurocup/eurocup2012.htm
In soccer, ASM is still leading the league. Four wins,one draw and three points ahead. Next Friday an away game against Le Havre.
It's slow news time, if something doesn't happen soon, I'll forget my password... My vote is on the sacking of the wifely escort. Please?
Long ago, I tried to convince people that ignoring barbie would be the best thing, since it was attention she wanted, but it didn't help. Now the damage is done and we (I) can only hope there is indeed a contract with a limited time clause and wait until the contract has been served.
The MC boulistes do well anyway, with or without Albert. They won the championship last year and were third the year before that.
I think the current sportive achievement which would explain their absence is a IVF marathon in some Albert's advisor's remote house where children aren't supervised but concocted. I'm putting money on a baby announcement to try to grandstand an upcoming Andrea nuptial. God, it's awful when I've actually twisted my brain the CC way, until I just got a spasm
tonight they will have the supercup in MC for the last time. They have had it for the past 15 years. NOw it's gone. IMO Uefa is doing their bit in their interest, possibly receiving some extra pay from the cities that will hold it in the future. But for MC it is not only a loss of media attention, it is a significant financial loss. They rarely manage to have a full stadium these days. Also the hotels will notice the difference. Another downgrading for MC. And especially for Albert it has to be quite a blow that he loses another sporting event. First the Laureus is moved to Spain, now Uefa moves the supercup. Ecclestone has already threatened to move the F1 which for now they managed to keep. But for how much longer? www.monacomatin.mc/football/un-retour-en-2016-a-monaco-pour-la-supercoupe-de-football.977228.html
