How I started playing petanque

A story from Lloyd in L.A.:

OK, the way I found out about petanque: Sometime in the early 80’s.
I was flipping around on the TV channels and came across a movie called: “Once in Paris”. It starred Wayne Rogers of TV’s “MASH” fame. He’s an American screenwriter. Hired to re-write/fix a French Screenplay, he is picked up by a frenchman who becomes his driver. On the way to the studio, his driver asks him if it’s ok to stop and play Petanque...and the rest is history...
I fell in love with the game....

Thanks, Lloyd! Anyone else?
