Am I the only one having flashbacks as I read about Fabien Barthez and his TIG (Travaux d'Interet Generaux)? I can still see myself coming down the stairs on another dreary Monday morning in Picardie and checking out the big board in front of the Sergeant-of-the-week's office... I remember having to wash a lot of hallways. As long as they were shiny, who cares if they were clean? Fabien's TIG seem like more fun... It'd be great if he got stuck doing gate duty at 2 AM with a Sergeant named Pourchier (I'm not making this up)--that seems like a much better punishment for spitting on a ref. But I guess he got to do his service in Joinville--does anyone out there know how real that military experience is? My impression was that it was basically an athlete's retreat.
