Batigol Weekly 18: Descent

Don't trick yourself. It's been a real treat of a season, the past week not withstanding.

So where do we go from here (and ten points to anyone who answered this question, "Where we're going, we won't need roads.")? Well, Wednesday brings a trip to Verona to face Luca "Frankenstein's Monster" Toni, so there's that. But yeah, we get it: it's sort of a spooky to fall off the top of the table. I mean, we've all had dreams about falling, right? But here's the thing: it always ends before you hit the bottom of whatever you're falling towards. And sure enough, we're all awake, and Fiorentina is no longer falling.

Falling ain't nothing but gravity anyways, man.

And who says that falling is such a bad thing, anyways? We all fell in love with Fiorentina and with Florence and with the color purple (fact: everyone likes Alice Walker), so maybe falling isn't so bad. After all, if you're already at the top, you don't have anywhere to go but down. A short, controlled fall means that now you've got some room to rise again, which is pretty thrilling. I'm not saying I like seeing Fiorentina in third more than I like seeing Fiorentina in first, but I'm still pretty okay with it. Plus, it could motivate the Della Valles to splash some cash in January.

What I'm trying to say, folks, is a little tumble down the standings is nothing. There is no need to be upset. Okay, maybe a small need, but still. Everything is okay. Falling ain't nothing but gravity anyways, man. And speaking of falling off the top of the table...
