French Soccer and Astrology

It turns out the current coach of the French team competing in Euro 2008 is an ardent believer in astrology, so much so that he uses it to pick the players for the French national team.

he France coach is the ever-controversial Raymond Domenech. He loves the theater. He loves astrology. He has said, publicly, that he won’t put Scorpios on the team (sorry, Robert Pires!), and that Leos make bad defenders.

Unfortunately for him, astrology seems to have failed him in this respect. France are up to a lousy start, they tied 0-0 with Romania, got their behind whipped 4-1 by Spain and are playing it all in the last game against Italy today. They’ve scored just one goal and allowed 4. I think he needs to load up on those Leo defenders. They’re on the brink of being eliminated, even though they still have a chance if they win today. Just another experiment that shows how ridiculous astrology is.

***IMPORTANT UPDATE-The French just lost 2-0 to Italy and were eliminated (last in their group) despite their astrology guided coach. Astrology is bullshit!
