Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Torino

There isn't a Turin-related theme going on the last couple posts, I swear. - Valerio Pennicino

Rise and shine, kids. It's time for lunch and the Derby della Mole.

It could be worse, I guess. We could be waking up for some game we don't care about at all. Instead, it's just some local derby that Juventus has done a good share of winning in over the last couple of decades.

Yeah, "just."

Juventus and Torino at the Stadio Olimpico just as the clock strikes 12:30 in Turin. Sounds good, doesn't it? (Okay, take out the fact that you may or may not be watching before the sun rises.) The first derby of the year may be happening a little earlier in the day than some of us would have liked, but it has arrived and there's nothing we can do about it.

Or maybe the lunch menu calls for Juventus goals and a shutout. That wouldn't be the worse thing in the world.

Did I mention when they kick the ball off in Turin it will be 3:30 in the morning from where I'm sitting? Dammit. At least my recliner is comfortable and the caffeine is coursing through my veins like no other. Stupid lunchtime kickoffs.

And we'll finally get the answer to the newest game taking Italy by storm, Who Will Start Next To Carlos Tevez. Hey, it sounds like we're on to something here. Somebody contact the television stations. We've got a potential hit on our hands.
