JUVENTUS, ELIE

Juventus. Elie. Mackay/De Maisonneuve, Montreal, 2011

Why Juventus? I asked.

“That was the very first club I watched as a child and I fell in love with it.”

Elie could consider himself lucky, the first team he watched could have been Lazio. I was wondering where are the Italians. It’s been more than a month I’ve been doing this and I haven’t seen a single Italian shirt. Then Elie showed up. My first ‘Italian’ is actually from Lebanon. From distance I couldn’t be sure if it was Juventus or Udinese shirt coming my way. I admit there is something seductive about stripes, perhaps it reminds me of my childhood when many more of this type of jerseys were used. This is a very nice shirt, except for the sponsor’s logo, but they are always ugly anyway.

  1. Italians don’t use wear football team’s shirt, maybe only the ASRoma do it.
    They wears the shirts only when they go to see a match.
