Now that some of us are back from France '98, there are those who have already started to
write about their experiences/exploits while supporting our boys in the ultimate tournament.
I thouhgt it would be interesting to post them here, and perhaps start a collection of these,
and hopefully spur some others on to do the same. Enjoy !

My wife (Susie) and I joined a group of 40 fans headed to France'98,
organized by Richard Groff through the internet. It turned out to be a
very interesting eclectic group. I had met many members of the group at
various Sam's Army gatherings in recent years, and had seen tag lines from
the others on NAS. It amazed me that 40 people from around the country,
with very dissimilar backgrounds, could come together under the banner of
supporting their National Team, and click so well as a group. Truly

Every trip I take never goes as expected. And my World Cup
adventure was no different.

If you have never been to a World Cup match, you are missing
a wonderful experience. As John (Wright) wrote, the atmosphere at
these kinds of events can be electric if the fans are in the right mode and they
were for the Jamaica/Croatia match. Too bad we can't say the same for
the Reggae Boyz. They forgot how to play basic soccer.

Here's a late report on the World Cup. My daughters and I went to the
US-Iran and US-Yugoslavia games and had a wonderful time. The
atmosphere at the Iran game was especially great.

I finally finished scanning in my pictures from the World Cup... If you're interested
in seeing some pictures of the matches I attended (US-Germany, US-Iran, US-Yugoslavia,
France-Saudi Arabia, Nigeria-Bulgaria, and Spain-Bulgaria), or of France.. or if you're
interested in reading my take on the experience, you can check it out at
There are lots of pictures, and quite a few words to go along with some of them...
If you like it, hate it, find errors, or anything like that, just email me...

that I'm a terrible photographer or need to buy a better camera).
