      MDR ! Hier, je me suis dit que ça serait bien de poster cette photo pour fêter les éliminatoires internationaux du Mondial 2014, mais j’ai un peu hésité car j’étais certaine que les Bleus seraient éliminés, et je ne voulais pas remuer le couteau dans la plaie ! Ils ont gagné, alors tout le monde est content !!! J’ai eu ma période “foot” mais j’ai été dégoûtée par l’attitude des Bleus lors du Mondial 2010, et, depuis, je ne regarde plus du tout leurs matches ! ❤

        Moi c’est exactement pareil !!! J’ai eu ma période, mais dégoûtée autant que toi par la suite !
        Mais ils n’ont pas été éliminée du mondial ? On m’a dit ça à moi l’autre fois, et je n’étais pas étonnée d’ailleurs mdr ^^
