My friends have been travelling Europe the past few months and their last stop is Italy. They went to this match and took a bunch of photos. I'll be joining them for the finals and I'm hype as gently caress.

These pictures are awesome and I'm incredibly jealous you're going to the final. If it is at all possible that you can grab some verdi merch (one of the shirts) and bring it back to the states I would be incredibly grateful. I would pay you for shipping and whatever it cost. Obviously if you can't do that or think it's weird, no sweat.

does the winner still get the cow? i definitely saw a shot of the cow today, but i remember reading somewhere last year that they just get a free dinner or something (one that is not the cow, i mean).

Yea from what I understand they used to slaughter the cow and the whole neighborhood would have a feast but I guess was deemed a little too barbaric or something. I think now they just have a big meal. The cow is just part of the procession it seems. The book from '72 still referenced the cow as a prize so I think that was still happening up until that point though.

they should eat the cow for the purity of the noble sport instead of getting an applebees giftcard imo

Fiorentina and Le Coq Sportif will continue the Calcio Storico theme this year, with the away kits being in the four colours again.

This is the special jersey for the new collection, unveiled today, to celebrate 1 year of the cooperation:



The four new away kits (the shorts are the traditional from Calcio Storico, they use "normal" ones for the match ):

I was planning on buying the Verdi kit all year but was waiting for the season end sale, I checked about a month ago and they were all sold out. I think maybe the sell out had to do with Astori passing because they were there all year. I emailed the shop and they said they won't be getting more. I'm super bummed out.

One of my co-workers is a big super hippy organic food pacifist type and yesterday she was going off on how soccer is the best sport because American sports are just violence.

I told her she might enjoy watching "Florentine Historic Soccer"

She back in today super pissed off at me like "Well, I watched your 'sport' last night"
