The Non-existent Existing Marchisio Debate
The Twitter world was set ablaze yesterday following Marchisio’s training ground comments . Is he still important to Juventus? Will they sell him? Who shot Jimmy Hoffa? All questions, no answers.
But then again, maybe there is an answer. And, as in most cases, it’s right in front of our face (or computer screens). All it will take is a little time travel.
June 10. Always A Special Day For Juventus & Italy
1934. Italy win their second consecutive World Cup
1961. Juventus hammer Inter 9-1 in Giampiero Boniperti’s last ever game
1968. Italy win the European Championships on home soil
1987. Stefano Tacconi makes his Azzurri debut
Here’s lookin’ at you rest of Serie A.
“Se penso a un’immagine che mi porto dietro di lui, mi ricordo ancora una bellissima foto, dove lui mi mette una mano sulla spalla, al Comunale. Così, un gesto d’ affetto, che lui ha fatto poche volte. Mi ritengo onorato per questo, sono stato fortunato anch’io nel corso della mia carriera ad aver rappresentato la Juventus, di aver conosciuto e soprattutto di aver lavorato assieme alle due persone che hanno rappresentato e impersonificato di più questo club: Giampiero Boniperti, che mi ha preso dal Padova, e l’ avvocato Agnelli.” - Alex Del Piero ()
Hoping for a little bit of this again.
Because sometimes only a meme can capture what you feel.
Memories of a Derby della Mole long gone. A 2-2 draw with Enzo Maresca scoring a late equalizer.
My Road to 30. A Scudetto Celebration.
I feel like I write the same intro line every time. It’s essentially a variation of: “I’m not very good at keeping up with this blogging thing.” So, for the two of you that have ever checked out my blog more than once, I’m sorry.
As the title to this post might suggest, I am slowly approaching 30. Well, not really. I turned 28 on May 13. Interestingly, that was the same day Juventus celebrated their 30th scudetto. Or 28th? You can thank Farsopoli for the numbers game.
As a birthday gift to myself, I made the 3,000+ mile trip to Torino with my girlfriend to take part in the scudetto festivities. I’ve made the trip before, but never under these circumstances. What to say: New Stadium. A Championship. My birthday. A once-in-a-lifetime moment.
