mCalcio Time-Out, The Second Edition

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

Ok, so remember the little computer problem I had earlier in November? Yeah, it’s back. Only this time, I think my hard drive is fried for good.

Even worse news? I am leaving for Salerno, Italy… today. Which means that this time, I can’t get the damn thing fixed before I leave (assuming it can even be fixed). So not only am I left computer-less again, but you folks will have to do without the daily mCalcio fix for a while.


And We’re Back…

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

So, after nearly a week of absence I’m back.

Let me tell ya: the phrase “when it rains it pours” wasn’t made for nothing. On top of the personal matters I had to take care of last week, fate decided to gang up on me. Not even 2 days after I posted my “time-out” message, my PC hard drive gave up on me (kaputt, refused to work) effectively leaving me without computer and internet access for nearly 6 days. In modern times, even one day without going online means incalculable pain and serious contemplation of suicide, especially for PC-junkies like me.

Fortunately, a friend of mine managed to fix the hardware problem and now I’m back. Posting will resume at reduced capacity this week, and should pick up again normally sometime this week-end.

And yes, the more observant of you will have noticed the Death Star has a rather peculiar shape in the SW poster. George Lucas has repeatedly stated he wasn’t going to make episodes 7 through 9, but I got some inside info and let me tell you: he’s up to something. There are rumours in fact that in the new episode, Darth Vader (back from the dead) will have evil plans to destroy the 3006 World Cup and soccer as we know it. Sepp Blatter is a main favorite for the role.

Dear mCalcio readers,

I regret to inform you to that due to some urgent personal matters, I am forced to take a temporary leave of absence from my blogging activities.

I hope to resume the footy reporting sometime early next week. In the meantime, you may find the following resources useful to keep up-to-date on all things Serie A.

See you soon hopefully.

Back from Italy

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Phew! I’m finally back from holiday. These can be really exhausting you know?

Picture this: I had to wake up at 11 everyday (sometimes 12!), walk up to the cafeteria to get food (someone had provided for me), walk back down for an afternoon nap. Then later, walk down to the beach and lie in the sun till evening, sometimes have a swim in the Mediterranean sea, sometimes play a little game of beach volley (those are tiring!) or “Calcetto” (the 5 on 5 Italian version of indoor soccer, even more tiring!!). Then in the evening, more food, hang around at the bar and go to bed late. I’m bushed.

Thank God I am back to the big city to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Calcio, as it prepares for yet another glorious Serie A season. Just like myself, the soccer stars have been working their ass off during the month of July, so we’ll have a look shortly on how their pre-season training and friendly matches are going.

Updates should resume more or less normally over the next few days.
