We're honoring A Doofus Abroad by dropping a post in his inimitable style, though we'll likely spell everything correctly.
For now, at least, we welcome Fiorentina as our adopted Serie A side. The Gigiliati (lilies, in Italian, and doesn't that fit us perfectly) are currently tied for third in the league table, holding onto Italy's final Champions League spot. As far as we can tell.
Montenegran striker Stevan Jovetic leads Fiorentina with 8 goals, despite only playing in 13 of the club's 18 Serie A matches. We're also partial to Azzuri stalwart Luca Toni, who's scored 6 times in just 9 matches since rejoining La Viola after stints with numerous high-level European clubs. Obviously, given our history, we like him because we can make a Tony! Toni! Toné! reference. Argentine defender Facundo Roncaglia has a fun name to say, too.
Bravo Gigiliati! And piss off, Trevor Mbakwe.
