There is one great story in France's failing to advance from the group stages at Euro 2008 -- namely that Lillian Thuram was not called upon to play any more matches, which increased his likelihood of living a long life. His retirement today due to the heart condition that took his brother early is sad, but he retires as the most capped player in French history and as one of the most successful players in Juventus history with four titles in five years (yes, I still count the "stripped" titles, they were earned on the field) and a CL finals appearance with la Vecchia Signora. In a world of spoiled, greedy brats, Lillian always stood out as a true and humble man. He is also unlike many, fully aware of the world around him. Hopefully he will enter the world of politics or activism and use his fame for the greater good, but regardless I wish Lillian a long and fruitful life and thank him for his time in world football.
