El Informe Del Fútbol: Your Italian League State of Affairs

soccer_player_italy.jpegIn Serie A, the race for the four Champions League berths is heating up. Inter Milan (currenly dominating and our favorite) and Roma are ensconced in the top places, but only six points separate third-place Lazio and sixth-place AC Milan. The Cinderella team is Fiorentina however. They lie in seventh place–still in striking distance–but the real story is how they overcome a 15-point penalty in the aftermath of the match-fixing scandal. Fans and experts alike initially thought that the penalty would be insurmountable and would land the Florence-based team in Serie B.

On a related note, wouldn’t it be fun if poor finishes relagated all teams to a shittier league? We think it would make things pretty interesting if those high-spending, underachieving big-city teams (Knicks, Celtics, Cubs, our Giants, etc) had to avoid demotion. Well, I guess we kinda have our own version here. Go Niners?
