08/21/2018: Wk 1 - Serie A is BACK!!

A dark cloud hangs over and exciting weekend for all CurvAmericans, following the tragedy of Genoa’s bridge collapse.  Two games are postponed and a moment of silence is observed before all Serie A fixtures.  Nevertheless, Serie A is back and on ESPN, hopefully putting an end to shady Reddit streams nationwide.  Cristiano Ronaldo’s much anticipated Juve debut is almost spoiled by the Geriatric Donkeys.  Napoli and OTFR go toe-to-toe in Week one’s Game of the Week.  Roma get a moment of brilliance to put them past their former teammates in Torino.  And, finally, Inter come out flat and give the season its first big upset.

05/09/18 - WK 36 Serie A Roundup and Champions League

It Ain’t Over Yet!!! 13 teams in the Serie A still have something to play for in the final three weeks!  The Scudetto is a piece of angel hair spaghetti away from being decided with Napoli dropping points in consecutive weeks.  Roma overcome getting knocked out of the Champion’s League semi-finals by sending Cagliari to the Danger Zone. OTFR draw Atalanta and Inter wax Udinese to keep the final Champions League spot a one game affair.  Milan put themselves in a European position heading into the Coppa Italia final. And Fiorentina keep their European dreams alive with yet another stunning victory in a game that saw a CurvAmerica hero get back on the scoresheet for the first time in years.

05/01/18 - WK 35 Serie A Round Up and Champions League

The Derby D’Italia turns the calcio world into an Alex Jones' type of conspiracy.  Koulibaly goes from Hero to goat and his club, Napoli, heads over to "Spa Fiorentina" for their waxing.  Roma show at this point in time all they need is Alisson and 9 other dudes to beat the old-timer Chievo Donkeys.  OTFR make a huge sacrifice to the calcio gods to beat Torino.  Milan, Atalanta, Fiorentina and Sampdoria get ready for the last Europa spot in a Royal Rumble set up.  Crotone, once again vanquishing all in their path in April as they head to the #RaceFor17th -  Udinese, Cagliari, Crotone, SPAL and Chievo enter the reverse Serie A Thunderdome (5 teams enter, 1 team stays).  That plus Champions League!

04/10/18 - WK 31 Roundup and Champions League - Off to Italia!

Get ready for an episode more trash than usual as we spent our weekend getting a crash course on filmography instead of watching the Serie A.  Benevento make it interesting for a hot second, but Juventus use a blade of grass and Costa’s left foot to put it away.  The city of Napoli sees a rush to the pharmacies for Xanax after the Donkeys take them to the wire. Roma and Inter make their case for team most deserving of 5th place.  OTFR put a tingle in CurvAmerica’s loins ahead of our pilgrimage to the Derby. Sassuolo make Milan become featured in the latest episode of “Teams that should not draw Sassuolo.”  And the Derby Della Lanterna finally doesn’t end w/ OTFGenoa fans walking home like Charlie Brown for the first time in the last two years.

3/7/18 - Serie A Wk 27 Davide Astori Tribute

A difficult podcast to do after the loss of Fiorentina's captain, Davide Astori.  We hesitated in recording but decided to honor Fiorentina and their captain by reaching out to some Viola faithful: Tito from SB Nation's Viola Nation and Chloe Beresford, a Serie A writer in the UK.  We briefly mention the games in Serie A, Champions League, and Europa this week.
