No Totti, No Party, Potential Hangover

Novara v Roma

I've been attempting - and failing - to come up with an analogy for this season. See, the problem is, the year is so utterly bizarre, and feel free to use the calendar year rather than one to thirty-eight, an appropriate analogy would probably get me banished from the internet forever, and likely include that transsexual rodeo clown who's been in hiding for far too long.

Tonight is no different:

For the sake of their sanity over the next couple weeks of international healing, you'd almost think they have to win. I mean, it's Novara and all. You can't spend 80+ million euros in a summer and then lose to Novara, can you?

(Don't answer that.)

But if they don't win, nothing will change, which is so foreign in the sport these days. What have you done for me lately? isn't of much concern right now. That doesn't make it wrong, just...foreign.

Just another attempt at both finding the right pieces and then making them fit.

Trial & Error, 2011.
