My gift list to Santa this year was very short (I don't need anything, and please, for the love of God, don't buy me clothes), but I wonder about the players. Say each of the Roma fellas were allowed one gift for Christmas, what would they ask for? Let's take a stab at this.
FocusFactor & Lithium.
A fast forward button.
A left testicle.
Julio Sergio Bertanoglio
Enough playing time to get down to one moniker.
A good, upstanding young woman who doesn't do nudie calendars.
A season-ending injury to either Panucci, Cassetti or Spalletti's brain.
An Azzurri recall. (All in favor? Aye.)
A role in the Brazilian remake of Magnum P.I., because that stache is freakin' awesome.
All he wants for Christmas are his two front teeth. His two front teeth. His two front teeth.
Just For Men hair coloring.
For every game to be a meaningless Champions League match.
Daniele De Rossi
For Roberto Donadoni to either be fired or get a clue. (Former more likely.)
A nice, smooth rub down for his groin. And some elasticity. But mostly the first one.
A wallbanger of Ludovic Giuly.
A time machine so he can go back to B.C. days and fight in the Colosseum, where he belongs.
A lifetime supply of Bubblicious.
A hooker. A hooker who deals Prozac.
To play every game against Cagliari.
A one way ticket back to Sardinia.
A pet snake named Chivu.
A pair of Totti's boots. The golden edition.
For Philou to reciprocate.
For Lega Calcio to allow him to wear the Montenegren NT shirt for Roma so he can score 75 goals in 2008 January.
For Roberto Mancini to shut the fuck up already.
A room on the sun and some SPF Bacon Grease suntan lotion.
For Max to go down so he can finally take over that LB spot.
One of each.
