Roma v Inter

In olde times, momma often quipped "if you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all".

In these moderne times of sharp lines and sharper ballpoints, I say "if you can't say something that won't send the masses grasping for Prozac, don't say nothin' at all".

These thoughts are genuinely all I have at the moment, broken like a record constantly being tugged down by its shirt, as the eyes flutter, the head bobs and I stare outside the window at the vastness beyond the menacing, daunting 'scrapers standing in my way of a clean break and open skies, thinking 'well isn't this metaphorical'. Maybe more tomorrow, maybe not; maybe we all just find some poison, find an Inter fan, pour a couple drinks, one of which is tainted, and not care who grabs which glass.

Everything else is just a brainstorm which I'm slowly realizing could be published as a book of sports cliches. Why yes, they should play like champions today while swinging for the fences, not pulling any punches and giving 110%. But most of all, one thing'll do:

Just win, baby.
