End Of An Era: Andrea Pirlo Retires

6 Nov

A day I hoped we’d never see has arrived. I know that he couldn’t play forever, but my heart certainly wanted him to. L’Architetto is one of my all-time favorite players (truth be told, probably my favorite) and to see him hang up his boots is hitting me hard (I’ll be inconsolable when Gigi retires as well). His wit, style, class, and elegance as a player will be sorely missed. The game won’t be the same without you. Thank you, Andrea for all the beautiful football.  ::sob::

How Much Damage Can A Soccer Ball Do?

9 Sep

Plenty, it seems. I burst out laughing when I saw this video from a Nest home security camera because I was totally imagining #PirloTheWizard in the yard next door making that happen. It’s time to revisit that brilliant ad campaign, methinks (in the post at the link).

A New OT3?

2 Jan


It’s a tad late, but too adorable not to share. Juventus made this Christmas animation and it’s delightful. Grumpy unimpressed Pirlo, Gigi’s interview getting interrupted and I’m pretty sure that’s supposed to be Llorente & Morata in the shower together starting about 1:56! I couldn’t stop laughing. Even animators and Santa ship them. I guess we have a new OT3. Llmoho? Sallmo? Shame it wasn’t Gigi and Fer in the shower with Santa or they could have been called Buffllho!
