I Blame the Defense

The fiery explosion in the streets of Milano this morning was considerably less catastrophic than the complete collapse of the Milan defense for a ten-minute period from the fifth minute to the fifteenth minute of last night’s Champion’s League semifinal derby. Maldini wept.

Several vehicles are in flames in the centre of Milan in northern Italy after a van carrying gas cylinders mysteriously exploded. SkyTG24 broadcast footage from the Milan’s Porta Romana neighborhood, showing high plumes of black smoke rising between buildings, and firefighters on the scene. Mobile phone footage from the street showed several cars in flames, as well as what appeared to be a scooter and nearby buildings.

Ten minutes, three shots, two goals, and one post. It was ugly. It was brutal.

Note to self: do NOT invite Interistas over to watch the next game.
