Confederate Culture Wars at NASCAR: Meg Thompson

Emerging Civil War

Irwin Tools Night RaceJust about the last hope for the Lost Cause might be NASCAR. As a follower and fan myself, it has been interesting to see how the sport of stock car racing has responded to the Confederate flag kerfluffle.

Gilles Simon d. James Ward 6-4 6-4 6-1

It wasn’t to be for James Ward today. He is capable of causing big upsets as we have seen in the past but the Frenchman was just too good for the Brit today. I saw the first set and a half of them match and after the first few games of the set I didn’t feel it was a close match.

Men's Fashion & Sport

Jonny Wilkinson photographed in France for Sport&Style Magazine

Aujourd’hui, j’ai laissé place à la classe et à l’élégance pour le Look du jour. Parait-il que  « le rugby est un sport de brutes joués par des gentlemen », Jonathan (alias Jonny) Peter Wilkinson reflète bien cet image de gentleman avec un physique plutôt bien bâti. L’ancien demi-d’ouverture a eu une carrière fantastique à l’image de la coupe du monde gagné en 2003 avec le XV d’Angleterre où il n’a cessé de jouer un rôle important. En tant que Français, nous ne pouvons pas oublié son jeu au pieds qui nous a fait tant de misères et où le fait qu’il ait évolué dans notre pays entre 2009 et 2014 au RC Toulon, club avec lequel il fut champion de de France et vainqueur d’une Coupe d’Europe.

En tant que bon gentleman, Sir Jonny n’hésite pas à sortir le costume trois pièces pour les grandes occasions. Pour garder un style très British…
