His. It was a dark and stormy night above the serene lights of the big display. Wind was coming and going all around the compact crowd of young people crammed togheter on the grass. In the middle, beers and lighters, intercostal pains and anti-ergonomic positions. In front of us, Italy. On the other side, English players. The World Cup is beginning even for us. Azzurri vs. Whites. “How did the match finish between the Whites and the Azzurri?”, someone asks behind me, and he seems to have come out from Caruso Paskowszki. Di padre polacco, the movie. Oh yes, the first match of the Historical Florentine Soccer: Whites from Santo Spirito vs. Azzurri from Santa Croce, still played today. 2-1 for the Whites. Shit.

 

Hers. So, I might have been wooed without realizing it. The World Cup set up a candlelit dinner, with wine (the nice glasses), and a tablecloth, and then they got me into bed. It was all going fine, it’s just that now they won’t let me sleep. Literally. A midnight game is not just a midnight start, but a 3am finish. And once it gets serious, like Italy-Inghilterra, the foreplay of dégustation and wine tasting (doc, of course) is the last thing on their mind.
