HEY, THERE'S A GAME TODAY! YEAH! We're back in business!

Well, kinda. It's not like this set of mini matches will determine the Scudetto.

After training for a little more than a week — nine days to be exact — in the part of Italy that breeds Ashton Kutcher lookalikes, Juventus head to the San Nicola in Bari to face rivals Milan and Inter for the annual round-robin tournament.

While it's only an exhibition, I wouldn't rule out Arturo Vidal being awesome or Mirko Vucinic turning the ball over three or thirteen times. You take the good with the bad, people. Sometimes you just have to come to grips with it.
