Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Napoli

Somebody hold me. I'm scared of Cavanis.

Juventus traveling to Napoli. It's No. 1 in Serie A heading to Naples to play No. 2. Two of the best teams in the league meeting on the same field with the chance to either put serious distance between the rest of the pack or to really put the pressure on — again — the league leaders.

So, which is it gonna be?

Will Juventus push their lead atop the Serie A table to a very pretty near-double digit lead as we begin March? Or, will Napoli reopen the Scudetto race, cutting Juve's lead to a very nerve-wrecking three points with still a third of the season left to be played. That's...yeah.

I think I know which one I want (if the last paragraph didn't give it away already). I think I know which one all of those decked out in bianconero want. Now it's just a matter of going to the Stadio San Paolo and doing just that.

In the meantime, I'll be here quiet sitting in the corner while in the fetal position. I can't help it. Edinson Cavani is one scary fella even when he hasn't scored a goal in over a month. He's good at game. Very, very good. Ball don't lie.
