Play Ball!

The good ol' American pastime, baseball, was the inspiration for this post. But in the interests of the non-CONUS RFFers out there, I decided to make it broader. Any kind of sports qualify!

I'll get us kickstarted...

The shot is from my blog entry on baseball in the US, which you can check out if you like.

Here's a football fan posing for his girl along the Seine. I'm sure she did not make the mistake of including that other guy with an AC Milan shirt in the picture!
