Video: Inter Milan's Scoring Spree

Watch Inter's goals during a 5-3 victory in Serie A. Cringe at the thought of trying to defend Mario Balotelli, Inter's 6-foot-2, 19-year-old striker (He's No. 45). Practice your rapid-fire Italian. Admire Palermo's all-pink kits.

OT: some good news from an SI colleague...

A 6'2", 19 year old athletic striker, sounds familiar...

I loved Molto Mario, but I didn't know Inter was that desperate for a chef/player.

That audio is like Rosetta Stone on crack. Or speed.

Did that Palermo defender intentionally kick the ball into his own net? Perhaps he was getting back at his coach for making him wear that uniform.

If you think BigSoccer posters can be annoying...I think I have found the worst offenders. Real Madrid fanboys on BigSoccer...try saying one thing and they get bent out of shape. I guess they are a bit sensitive after the Alcorcon destruction.

270, OT!

I have tried posting to your blog, but after spending time writing a bit, the blog never seems to accept my post . . . not taking it personally, really . .

Anyways, I wish to simply send you the best, in ever regard . . and say that . . "It is only when the ice and snow are on them that we see the strength of the great pine and cypress."

Glad to hear good news re our fellow poster. As an aside, if he's reading -- I'm a die-hard Giants' fan, and it's spelled Amani Toomer. I like the name, but I'm biased.

I have to admit I didn't follow everything the highlights guy said, but I distinctly heard a reference to "Super Mario". I have to remember that next time my UEFA Champions' League fantasy squad 'takes the field'. Balotelli is a beast -- combination of Ronaldo (the original and Drogba). Hopefully, he will someday be accepted by all Azurri fans (he's been the object of considerable racist expression).

On the 1st header (goal 2?):

"Un finito impeccabile"

Thrilling match. However, a bit annoyed at all the selfish tap ins after another striker has all but finished.

Hang in there. It's good to see your posts again and it was even better to hear the great news.

joedoc - Thanks for the info.

Say, Goff - is this the kind of open, free flowing soccer/goal fest your buddy was referring to whan he blabbed his way to a 5K fine? ;-)

Oh yeah to all you Seattle kit haters out there - REAL MEN WEAR PINK!!

Only a Sicilian team can get away with pink jerseys. Who's going to make fun of their fans?

Posted by: fischy | October 30, 2009 3:39 PM | Report abuse

Well in, fischy.

Thanks for the thoughts and comments folks. Enjoy the weekend.

Espanyol has pink jerseys.

Middlesex County Cricket Club have worn pink breast cancer charity jerseys for about three years now (in the 20/20 competition)...

Posted by: Kev29 | October 30, 2009 4:33 PM | Report abuse

Uhh. Toronto has worn pink jerseys the last two years for breast cancer awareness as well haven't they?
The pink ribbon DCU hat idea is great but the hats that the league uses are butt ugly. Pre bent brim flex fit caps suck. MLS needs to work something out and release some HOT FITTED'Z...

ever play a vinyl backwards?

The United have their players in a uproar about the friendly they are trying to set up in December, anyone know if the game will be played at RFK or who the opponent will be?

But wouldn't it make sense for a team called "Middlesex" full of men wearing pink?

As i have a mother who is a breast cancer survivor, I both love the whole sports team/breast cancer awareness deal and am very happy to hear the positive news about I-270. Keep living strong man.

Palermo's second goal was fantastically mechanical in execution. Almost Soviet in precision.

Breaking news! Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich blows 50k on lunch.

Should the tip be based on the total or should you tip the waiters and the sommelier separately? Maybe it doesn't matter if you're a billionaire.
