Barcelona wore those away kits that made them look like walking cans of Five Alive against AC Milan and played accordingly. They return home down two goals after a stunning defeat at the San Siro earlier today. Mario Balotelli, Robinho and the rest of their crew sent them on their way with their impression of an early 90s hip hop video. I’d love to know what that girl said to them. I’m guessing the Italian equivalent of “Y’all gettin’ some tonight”. Commence bouncing with joy.
Well that didn’t take long. The walking controversy that is Mario Balotelli was welcomed back to Italy by hoards of fans and scored 2 goals in his AC Milan debut. “Cyclone Balotelli” is back at the San Siro. Milan is back in the race for the Scudetto level on points with Inter after being 13 points behind 10 games ago. All’s well that ends well, right? Not when the Berlusconi family is involved.
Paolo Berlusconi, AC Milan vice-president and the younger brother of the club’s owner and prime minister for life Silvio, became living proof that buffoonery is genetic over the weekend. He was leaving a political rally when he dropped this gem.
OK, we are all off to see the family’s little n—-r. He’s a crazy head. All the young ladies are invited as well – you can even have a chance to meet the president [Silvio Berlusconi].
Paolo is also the editor of il Giornale and runs corruption game as well as his brother. His specialty is false accounting of which he’s been convicted twice. One would think that wouldn’t be a big deal in Italy where cooking the books and not paying taxes is an art form. He got two jail sentences and was required to pay a 49 million Euro fine.
Unsurprisingly not much was made of the remark until it was picked up by the foreign press. Don’t expect anything to be done about it. Don’t expect any remorse from Berlusconi. We’re just here to inform you that racism is still alive and thriving in Italy. It remains to be seen whether Balotelli will walk off the pitch or resort to attacking Paolo.
It was Sunday afternoon. Wasn’t a damn thing funny. Bitch, Manchester City has that money. Apparently it pays for penalties against MLS teams and mediocre strikers.
While most English Premier League teams are bedazzling foreign countries with the ugliest of new jerseys, out of shape players and bullshit pre-season training, City’s Mario Balotelli is showing the world what his midseason form is all about.
The guy [Dzeko] who only scored one goal for City last season calling Balotelli out? Priceless. “I may go straight Torres on a goal but I can’t go for that“.
Balotelli throwing a “vaffanculo” at City manager Roberto Mancini? That’s a benching. He ended last season starting a fight with Manchester United players after City’s FA Cup win, cursing on TV in his post-match interview and getting smacked down in a club after hitting on some guy’s girlfriend. If this is his pre-season, we can’t wait until the Premier League kicks off. Consider this post the first entry in the Balotelli Blotter. Wherever he fucks up, we’ll be there. Stick with us. It’ll be worth your time.
And yes that was a Cheap Trick to get that Chromeo/Daryl Hall video in there. See how that happened?
