To a Bay Area native like myself, AT&T Park has been a place has seen quite a bit since it opened its doors for the first time before the 2000 baseball season began. There have been hundreds of baseball games — both those that mean nothing at all and those that have champion
Now, AT&T gets another thing playing on its field — Juventus.
Juve kick off its tour of the United States and the Guinness International Champions Cup tonight (West Coast time) and English Premier League side Everton. Over the next week, Antonio Conte's men will rack up the frequent flyer miles, going from San Francisco to Los Angeles to Miami in less than a week's time. And with a potential meeting with old friend Carlo Ancelotti on the horizon down in Los Angeles, getting off to a good start in the United States tour will certainly be positive for an already confident group who just so happened to get its core back from summer holiday.
But for now, it's all about trying to break down what was one of the best defenses in the Premier League last season and, at the same time, continue to prepare for the season opener — which is less than a month away, folks.
For those of you in the United States, the game will be broadcasted on Fox Soccer Channel starting at 11 p.m. on the East Coast and 8 p.m. out West. Feel free to take a picture if you see me looking like an idiot behind one of the goals.
And somebody post the lineups in the comments. I'm gonna be a little busy telling Gigi Buffon how much I love him.
