Derby time.

This is supposed to be the "derby of peace". You know what? Bullshit. This is not a time for social commentary, and it's not a time to honor someone who had nothing to do with the game besides having a favorite team. That time is long gone for those at a distance - we, the fans - and that time is every day who knew the victim on an intimate basis. It's a football game. One of the most heated and hate-driven games in the world of sport. Why don't we just leave it at that? (As you know, I'm not a fan of crossing genres.)
