Sigh...Inter wins the Serie A Italian League, again

Of course my friend G, a hard core Inter fan, is in a very good mood.

It's still a miracle that Roma was only two points behind given how terrible Roma's season stared.

This is the fourth year in a row Inter has won the Scudetto. If they beat Bayern Munich in next weeks Champions league, they will have won the tremble: The Coppia Italia, the Scudetto and Serie A. Barcelona won the tremble last year.

We'll see what happens next season. Roma played with a lot of heart.

Yesterday, after Roma won their last game of the season, I heard the song below over and over again. Some of the lyrics are in Roman dialect, right?

It's the end of the season but the biggest sporting event on the planet starts next month...The World Cup!!

Yeah! Can't wait for the big cup. Hopefully there'll be some great specials about SA also.

Oh! Sorry your team lost. Hope you didn't make any bets. ;)

I live with a person who is an Interista (therefore pleased). But he is first a German. So in five days we will see what happens. It will hopefully be an interesting Champions League game in Madrid...

Even though we live waaaaay down south, my Italian boyfriend has been an Inter fan since he was a kid. He was so excited about the scudetto, but won't talk about the next game with Bayern. :-)
