France '98 Photostory


I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to France '98 as part of a group of forty Americans led by Richard Groff. The World Cup is first and foremost the world's greatest sporting event, but as Bill Shankley would say, its much more important than that. Being at a World Cup is a truly unique and wonderful experience - no other event brings together people from all over the world with a common purpose and spirit.
