Two European cities are hosting title winning parades as we speak. In Northern England, the City of Manchester is saluting Manchester United on their 20th English League title and saying one more goodbye to Sir Alex Ferguson. (He’s had a few, but come on, he deserves it!)

While in Paris, along the banks of the River Seine and underneath the Eiffel Tower, Paris Saint-Germain are celebrating their first French League title since the 1993-94 season. So we thought we’d give you a little snippet of the action so far, enjoy the celebrations… these guys are!

    I was in Paris in 1998 for the THREE-DAY celebration after Zidane-inspired World Cup triumph. The final was on a Sunday. The celebration spilled easily into Monday. And then Bastille Day, a huge event anyway in France, was Tuesday. It was absolutely fantastic.

    It’s good to know that even the English communications professionals have trouble remembering which “its” to use.
