It's summertime! Blue skies, nearly triple-digit temperatures and sleeveless t-shirts abound. Currently without a job, I wake up every day and dutifully search for employment, keep aboob of the world's goings-on and occasionally proffer my tuppence. As I go through my day I can't help but think about my future, and where I'll be spending my summers from 2012 and beyond. Whatever happens, I know that a year from now, my life will be drastically different.
While that's a sobering/exciting prospect at the moment, I have to continue to live in the present and make sure to do everything I can to be in the place I'm meant to be. A huge part of that means prayer, introspection and working hard every day to find the right job opportunity, but another part of it is making sure not to let life stress me out too much. I've never been one to let anything really get me down, but as 25 creeps around the corner, problems seem more and more real as the days go by.
With that being said, I'm taking everything a day at a time and making the most of the moment and blah blah blah, let's talk about Juventus!
Another part of the summer is hearing the RIDICULOUS transfer rumors flying around my beloved Old Lady. We've made good progress so far, bringing in left back Reto Ziegler, legendary midfielder Andrea Pirlo, and solid backup defensive mid Michele Pazienza as well as most recent additions Fabio Quaglariella, Alessandro Matri and Simone Pepe on permanent deals. Some of the dross still remains, *cough cough* Marco Motta *cough cough*, but I believe the club is on the right track.
Despite all this, questions rage around the internets, speculating on what (if any) big name Juventus will bring in, who will leave, what color underwear Del Piero is wearing, and whether or not Buffon has a breakfast or brunch on a regular basis. While I typically try to stay out of the transfer debates, often I find myself unable to refrain from jumping headlong into the fray, just to let my worthless opinion be known.
The fact remains that I love my club, and I can't wait to see what happens when the transfer window does hit full swing. However, until we begin to see "officially official" and players holding the Juventus jersey, there's simply no real point in speculation and debate. All judgement of Marotta and co. is useless until September 1 when the transfer window closes. Until then, I'll continue to hopelessly attempt to ignore the swirling rumors and pretend as I'm above it all.
