Are you ready for some football? No, no, no. Not the sport with the ball that looks like an egg, thus the reason a lot of people call it handegg. I'm talking about Juventus.

Yes, we're back in action. A preview of the game on this website probably gave that away, didn't it? Eh, whatever. You guys probably have Juve's schedule memorized from start to finish anyways, so it's not like I'm alerting you to something that is breaking news.

Right, on to the actual game.

For us folks on the West Coast, this is the first game that, if we want to watch it live, requires waking up before the sun rises. For all of you guys who actually get to sleep in, I hate you. (I'm kidding. I love you guys. You're awesome.)

For everybody, though, it's the return of calcio. HOORAY HOORAY!
