week 19 of ligue 1

lyon lose. yes, you read that correctly, the mighty lyon finally lost a game. the lyon fans didn't seem to enjoy a great performance from lille. things weren't going too well with lyon: cris was screaming at his defense, carew was yellowed for a dive, fred got rid of his 'fro & braided his hair all rio ferdinand style. and that's not cool. lille's #17 (makoun), on the other hand, has cute sticky-uppy hair. govou (who has not-so-cute sticky-uppy hair) does manage to score a lovely goal for lyon but that's about all they can do. they even feel extra hard done-by when they score & it's called back for a non-existent foul on the lille keeper.
the cuties at auxerre lose at home to nancy to a penalty. the boy (zerka) who takes it & scores then celebrates by brandishing a zorro-like 'z' in the air. *cough*dork*cough*
another interesting goal celebration over at rennes for st. etienne. the vistors win 1-0 and there are cheerleading hurkeys all around.
and then there is my personal fav goal celebration, the shirt removal. yes, we see less & less of it, but it has been the boys in the french league who have been ignoring the stupid yellow card punishment & go for it anyways. (i heartily approve.) so this boy at lens decides to take off his shirt & has another jersey underneath it. the exact same jersey. and he STILL gets a yellow! c'est ridicule! at least lens won 2-0.
oh! and the best news is that ajaccio actually score a goal!!! the little corsicans don't win the game but hey, it's our first goal since october 16th and i'll take what i can get right now. a point against psg seems like a good way to go into the winter break. they can refresh & come back next year & climb out of that relegation zone. *fingers crossed*

Lyon needed and rest and so did Auxerre. They both come back to some great wins. As well as PSG. Lots of goals and very exciting stuff week 20!
