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.

You see, I always pick at my nail polish when I watch high profile matches due to my anxiety fits.

To the corrupt people guilty of match-fixing: Please enjoy this sport for its natural beauty. Don’t kill it for us with your avarice, because the truth will come out.

On a brighter note, this has been a quiet week in terms of club matches, because our boys are getting ready to play with their national teams on February 6, 2013 (today or tomorrow, depending on your time zone) in a series of international friendlies. Here is a list of the attention-grabbing matches, including a list of notable absentees.
