You Have To Admit The French Have One HELL Of A National Anthem

Tiny scrappy Croatia will lose their freaking minds if they win the big game but so will France. I am fine with either outcome. World Cup is one thing I don't really ever follow because I hate how much it breaks everyone's heart. It's so high stakes everywhere but North America for some reason and that also fascinates me. FIFA is more corrupt than Trump and the Umbrella Corporation combined so I am suspect of any result. That being said I taught many kids who became better kids just because they started playing on a soccer team. It's very egalitarian in a World that is always most unfair. Can you imagine a whole stadium singing this anthem? I love how you think the best part of the anthem is over but then it ROARS back to life. Chills. Every damn time. I want to learn to sing La Marseillaise in French because I would kill that song in a casino should the need ever arise again to send the Nazis a message.

I've always loved La Marseillaise too. It's one of the world's best, most stirring national anthems, along with the USA's "The Star-Spangled Banner" and Russia's original national anthem "The Internationale."

Russia has a kick ass anthem too. You almost want to join up after you hear it.
