I'm terrified that our Sandro is going to retire. Who could blame him, really? More surgery, more recovery and rehabilitation and it's not like he's 20. I'm so sorry about Becks too; this injury rules out the WC for him barring a miracle.

Thanks to Milan doing the needful on Saturday my tummy is not roiling and my nerves remain un-jangled. It certainly helped that so many Samp boys were suspended but I think the win owed more to great football from Milan. Hopefully, all the industrious skipping about bodes well for the coming week's CL fixture.

I finished rereading The Sword of Shannara and began The Elfstones of Shannara again. I should substitute "ploughing through" for reading. There's no character in the Shannara triology that I can latch on to and care about. Terry Brooks tried for a "Fellowship" feel (in some places you feel that he must have been writing with Tolkien Cliffnotes beside him) but it's difficult to believe these Dwarves, Elves and Men really are working together to save their homelands. I'm beginning to truly loathe Allanon all over again. Every time he calls Amberle, "Elven girl," I'm hoping she replies, "Does Amberle have to choke a bitch?" Alas!

I must confess that I watched Genoa-Parma solely for the opportunity of catching a close up of Davide Lanzafame. Purty, ain't he?



I learned that there is a surprising lot of good hair on the Parma squad. I'm hoping to find pictures later. But, honestly, what had me giggling all through the match was this



Gasperini of Genoa = +



Anyway, darlings, the Rome derby is on; De Rossi's in a mask and Totters looks like he's growing his hair out.

Birthday!

Half time and we're a goal down. Chelsea's taking this fairly seriously but I don't think we care much. Vieri is utterly useless and I'd rather have Crespo. Nessie's having a bad game but he always does in these US tours, too much humidity perhaps.

The announcers need an education; it's actually fairly common for Milan and Inter to trade players, where do they think wee Andrea and Seedorf came from? We gave them Helveg too. The CL QF derby aside, the Milan - Inter rivalry is far more benign than say, Roma - Lazio or Torino - Juve. Oh, it's Andrea Pirlo not Andres he's not French or Spanish.

Wee Elef is doing pretty well even if he doesn't have the communication with the defenders down yet. I expect we'll see Vogel in the second half.
