Not a big post here, but as I was looking over the internet for soccer news, I came across an article in ESPN about how Eric Cantona is looking to run for the French presidency in 2012. Although I thought this may be for the position of the President of the French FA, no this was actually a move to become the next Nicolas Sarkozy. 

The article goes on to quote the legend as he says that he's not anticipating a victory, just to get on to the ballot. He's hoping to raise awareness of the lack of housing in France for the impoverished.  

Look at that, King of the Stretford End using his powers for good.
