    So if the NFL ever plays a game in France (perish the thought as football is so brutish)...we will hear them refer to the "coffin corner" as the "coffin coup de pied de coin"? I can't see that making the highlight films.
    lol now there's a thought, and some other expressions would be:
    offensive line - ligne blessante
    All Day - toute la journée
    touchdown - atterrissage
    green bay sucks - le dos de vert suce

    loses a little in translation I think

    The only war they won decisively was the French Revolution, mainly due to the fact that they were also fighting the French.

    No, it would be a "coup de pied de coin de cercueil". It would be interesting to watch the stands in that game, though. The fans' "serviettes terribles" (terrible towels) would all be white. That's the only color they know how to wave.

    LMAO ;D

    Also I have no problem with what the French are doing considering all that crap is happening in the U.S., except with everyday life instead of sports.

    Wow.
    Their government is so bloated and all-pervasive that it gets to determine CULTURE, too?
    What a goddamned waste of public money.
    You can't stop the people from using English words, listening to English language music, and watching films originally made in English if that's what they want to do.

    Such an institution is ridiculous and should be abolished immediately, to be replaced by a revolutionary invention - "dictionaries," which are produced by private institutions called "publishing companies."
    The beauty of it is that it requires no direct public funding.
    Bookstores and educational institutions will PURCHASE these "dictionaries" and use them for playing Scrabble.
    Oops, I'm sorry - "le Scrabble."

    lol now there's a thought, and some other expressions would be:
    offensive line - ligne blessante
    All Day - toute la journée
    touchdown - atterrissage
    green bay sucks - le dos de vert suce

    loses a little in translation I think
    ;D
