I happened to be at the Pantheon today and realized the Olympic torch was coming, so I stuck around and watched the bizarre celebration. There was this guy, a dance team on the back of a flatbed truck, another acrobatic team on the back of another flatbed truck and, because Greece is playing France tonight, there were Greek and French flags everywhere.
I’m sure I’ll be hearing the cheers and boos from the sportsbars downstairs all night.
France lost, the street is silent.
