AS Roma gave Manchester United a good game.
Well, not really, considering Man U. put up more goals than I've ever seen in a soccer game combined.
Perhaps AS Roma goalkeeper Alexander Doni was playing with two broken arms, that would be his best excuse for letting up a club-record 7 goals.
Was he playing hot potato with the ball? Maybe.
Was he doing a good job in the net today? Hell no.
But the story surrounded Roma skipper Francesco Totti, who was quoted last year saying:
"'I am not worried about what (Manchester United Manager) Alex Ferguson thinks of me as - as (Roma coach Luciano) Spalletti says - he will see for himself. I hope I will make him remember my name.' I don't like English football players and I dislike England because of the weather."
Whoa there badass. I don't think anyone on this Earth could take an Italian soccer player seriously, especially since their players are notorious for flopping more than a Joe Theismann telecast. Disliking England is another problem, considering the game was in England today.
"Totti said that he was expecting to be man-marked by United.
'So they are going to put me in a cage?' said the World Cup winner. 'The opponents always make a cage for me."
Hey, who said anything about putting you in a cage? I definitly don't want to see you in a cage. Unless that cage is a prison, which I would laugh my ass off to see you get pummeled by the second worst scum of the Earth, number 1 being you.
"Nothing will stop me from returning to Athens (for the UEFA Championship)"
Well Francesco, if you act quickly, I'm sure you could order some tickets to the final on StubHub or Ebay.
