I am not a big fan of "dad logic"....but I can't help think that a dose is needed in regards to the recent Russian/French/English violence.
Because put plainly, if you go to a foreign land....start drinking in the morning, situate yourself in the town square - drunk, sun-stroked, shirts off - chanting aggressive songs, throwing beer bottles...you can't really blame the police when they come along and toss you in jail.
Also, if you see a bunch of Russian guys.....don't start sh*t up with them. Way before it gets rough....just excuse yourself....say you have to go call and check on Jenny and the kids or something....and ease back to the hotel and have a cooling shower and a nap. Maybe a nice plate of pasta. Just don't be the guy out front in the vanguard challenging the Russians. It never turns out well.
In fact...why not just stay home and watch it on TV? Use the money and take the family out to a nice dinner and a movie...
