World Cup interlude: The Juventus roster is coming together, and I like it



The World Cup field has been whittled in half, and the bracket has miraculously sorted itself out into a ridiculously imbalanced shape. On top are Brazil, France, and Belgium, who could be counted among the favorites ? but also Portugal (with a guy named Cristiano Ronaldo), Argentina (with a guy named Lionel Messi) and Uruguay.

But alas, today is the first day since the beginning of the tournament without a game, and I?m feeling the absence palpably ? an acute pain of lack of football which has led me to pleasantly consider the current situation of my heart?s true football love, Juventus.
