Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Chievo

New, comments

Maybe if things go bad we can play Donkey Kong afterwards?

Marco Luzzani

You know this whole thing where Juventus has been dropping points in games they should be winning as of late? Yeah, it's not exactly the most exciting thing in the world to deal with. Even though I'm sure the rest of the teams chasing Juventus in the Serie A standings enjoy, the same thing won't be said around these parts.

Maybe it's time to put an end to all that nonsense and get three points.

That's probably for the best.

Juventus try to snap out of this post-Christmas break funk on the road in Chievo, a place where they played out a scoreless draw last season. Something tells me things won't go over well if that same kind of results repeats itself. It's just a hunch. I get them from time to time.

That's all for now. It's too damn early — or in this case late on the West Coast — for any kind of jokes and nonsense like that. Just win.
