Let’s talk ’bout football, will you? Or soccer if you prefer to call it that way. And it’s not a surprise at all of course that I’m one of the so many people in the world who love this kind of sport. Love to watch the game (whenever I have the chance) and love to play as well – well maybe very occasionally.
And the part of football that I’d like to talk about right now is Inter Milan. FC Internazionale Milano SpA; that’s its formal name. No need to explain more about this club I guess, as there are heaps of info that you may find on it on the net.
It’s not that this club is currently the leading team in Serie A competition 2007/2008. Nor that it’s been taking the Scudetto (Serie A Champion) since 2006. It’s really the favourite club of mine since around 1994 that I wanna share and talk about in this occasion.
Well of course, whatever the reason is, it’s just OK to love such a great club like Inter. In fact, probably millions of football lovers in the world love this team. And I’m simply one tiny part of them. Part of a lot more people who love football and use to have their own favourite club(s) as well.
Actually, some of my friend here (I mean friends in Indonesia who probably had visited this blog) have already knew this as my chosen football club. But maybe not all of you, my friend, knew my reason to choose Inter as the favourite one.
It’s really as simple as this … In around 1994, when I was in my first year in college, I used to love the other great Italian football club, AC Milan. These two clubs are actually great contenders, and have this duel famously called Derby Della Madonnina – like the one that happen this weekend in Serie A. Yet, back to my previous story, as I then interacted with few more friends who really love football, I found out that many of them also loved AC Milan. So, not wanted to be called ‘trend follower’, I then switched my favourite to Inter Milan. It was just like that.
So, I might not a real Inter fans then, huh? Maybe. But maybe not. Who can easily tell a real fan out of so many fans in the world anyway. The members of ‘right wing’ fans club of Inter in Milan probably have their own marks.
Anyway, I must admit it’s just another part of ‘unimportant’ passion in my life that I have (since I unlikely will become a real sport’s fan). However, why don’t I just show you here a selection of Inter players that I consider as most favourites. Well, what do you think, my fellow football lovers? Aren’t they great players? And girls, aren’t they just good looking?😉
