Exporting basketball victory to Paris, France

Some Parisians and us after a game of basketball beneath the Eiffel Tower on Oct. 12, 2008.

We beat up on some Dutch guys in Amsterdam playing basketball last week. Then, in Paris, France, we came upon a similar group and couldn’t spare them. In the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, we had a good match, shared some French and won outright.

Enjoy the highlights below.

If I see someone playing basketball and I have a hot minute, I am going to take the opportunity. We got lots of response after Sean and I played those guys in Amsterdam in exchange for directions and advice.

Walking towards the Eiffel Tower, we came across a handful of gents balling on the mean streets of central Paris. After working through in my head a few French phrases I might need for the exchange, I asked if we could play next. We got a three on three match - which we won - rotating with Sean’s brother Brian and another fella with energy, a beard and an effective, squirrely nature.

It wasn’t a particularly pretty game, but we got some excerise, the chance to play in the shadow of the world’s most recognized landmark and I got another opportunity to try some casual French. A nice photo to boot. Definitely worth a half hour and some sweaty clothes.
