The Plin

img_2766

 

We started hear about “il Plin” during high school years.

Nobody really knew if he was just a legend or if he existed for real. Between us, he was a sort of superhero, like in that Schwarzenegger movie, Sboretor. In high school, when a bully was really oppressive, Plin ridicule him with an ironical writing on a wall. It didn’t work in stopping violence but, for a while, made us forget the shit around us.

Nobody never met him but he was there, defending the weaker with his irony.

We started believing that he was not alone, that he was a group of people that used irony as a weapon, to protect us from high school bullies, or from who made a bankrupt with an historical Crusader Serie A team we can’t mention here.

Year after year we all friends started WhatsApp groups inspired by him called “The Plin” where we posted satirical commentary on life’s fact, just to make a laugh during coffee break. I heard it happened the same also in other cities. Casualty wanted that his name was also onomatopoeia for the WhatsApp tone and this made it even more popular. “Plin” became soon synonymous for “ironical joke”: “eh eh, what a good Plin!” “I have to tell you the Plin I red on the newspaper, so fun”.

Point is that The Plin started messaging also on Parma stuff, and we would like you not to miss it. We decided to report every interesting Plin that we find around: please, be patient if our translation is not perfect.

We still don’t know if The Plin exist or not, if he is alive or where are they now (?!). We like to imagine a quiet accountant with Tom Selleck mustache in a small town that top up his wages with striptease and sometimes makes volunteering with Captain Lucarelli.

Ps: Thanks to il Plin, by the heart.

It is not the first time you read this post but it is so important for us we prefer to be even boring.

The season is about to officially start with our coming back to Serie A. On Sunday against Udinese it will be emotional, despite the result. It doesn’t matter.

We have to stop a minute to think about this incredible three years we just lived from the failure to the coming back to serie A with three straight promotions.

We have to say “thank you” to all the players, managers, trainers that are part of Parma Calcio 1913 or have been in last three years. Thanks to all the supporters that followed the team even in serie D and even in bad times.

Stealing the words to a friend that we are about to introduce you: “Don’t tell to failed teams they will do like Parma. You know it is impossible”

In Parma there is that “kind of magic” that is not easy to explain to who is not a supporter. Our mission is to show that to everyone that would like to get closer to Crusaders passion, as we explained with the Hidden Crusader post.

Parma is not like other places. Parma Calcio is not like other teams.

Join us and you will discover it.

Today is exactly three years since Valerio Pennicino/Getty Images took this pic that is on Parma Calcio Facebook wall.

This was the second friendly match of new Parma Calcio 1913 in a village few kilometers from Parma: no official shirt on, some incredulous face, some determined. The Captain, of course, and some face we would learn to be used to: Ciccio Corapi, Lauria, Giorgino, Zommers, Cacioli… Boys of Curva Nord always there, everywhere.

We come from here.

Don’t forget it after the first, after the second, after the third match lost.

Thank you to Dario for making us remember this moment.

Best kit ever

1998-99

The poll ended yesterday and the winner is, as predictable, Parma season 1998-99 kit by Lotto.

The Gialloblu shirt, worn by Crusaders during winning UEFA Cup Final in Moscow against Marseille is the best Parma kit ever for you, Parma Fans Worldwide followers.

If now you can’t resist here is the link to full match because highlights is for boys, full match is for men. 😉

 

 

It is not a case that Erreà, in 20th anniversary of that glorious victory, get inspired by that jersey to design the new away kit we all admired last week.

Now we can’t do more than wait for home kit.
