AC Milan v. Inter Milan Derby della Madonnina, PSG v. Marseille Le Classique & Brazil’s Ronaldo Tribute

25 Feb

Today started off on the greatest note. I had a dream, in which Sergio Busquets visited me and we went on a hiking roadtrip to Los Angeles. He was wearing a light gray hoodie and was craving Wendy’s. Seriously, Mr. Millionaire Busquets, Wendy’s? Oh well, Wendy’s it was. I woke up from the dream at 4:30 a.m., completely inspired to work out. I headed to the gym and arrived there before it opened and before anyone else showed up. I hope I have more dreams like these for gym motivation purposes. I honestly don’t know why I had a dream about Busquets; I have never even thought of him, but a trip with a top-notch fútbol player never hurts, right?

In addition to my Busquets dream, a refreshing gym sesh, and my religious dose, today was the Derby della Madonnina, AND Le Classique, AND a tribute to legendary Brazilian Ronaldo within that French derby. Let’s start with Italy’s fiercest fútbol clash in the San Siro.

AC Milan Champions League 2011 rerun airing in Fox Deportes in the background. It would be complete ingratitude from by part I asked more from life. And, the programming says that the 2012 rerun will air after this one is over. Of course it is all about Barcelona v. Milan today. Why? Well, only because Barça and Milan will meet for the 16th time today in the first leg of the last 16 in the 2012-2013 Champions League. So, if you are watching Fox Deportes, prepare to have a Barcelona v. Milan overdose today. Personally, I will take that overdose any day. Thank you, Fox Deportes. FYI, Fox Deportes is airing the 2012-2013 Champions League in Spanish. It is also airing the Copa Libertadores. Therefore, you Spanish speakers out there, get the channel ASAP!!!!

Some psychologists believe that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. I have not really analyzed that tenet, but just in case, let’s take a look at the history of Barça/Milan to see if we catch any trends and form an idea of tonight’s victor/score. Let’s also look at some details of tonight’s clash in San Siro, Italy.
