In two years we…

Gli Scarrozzati show in Collecchio has been a success.

As we already anticipated in previous posts, it was the chance for Paolo De Gregorio and his company to meet a lot of friend from Parma area: people from the Club, from the show business and normal citizens that would like to give their support to the Sacra Famiglia Institute.

At the end of the show, as usual since 2015, they sang all together a song. This year it was “We are the World” with rewritten lyrics by The Plin.

New version is titled “Fra due anni noi”, “In two years we…” and is a joke based on the mathematical fact that since 2015 every year that Gli Scarrozzati come to Parma for a show, the Club got promoted.

So, in two years we… will win Champions League 🙂

In the video you see the song sang all together for the first time with Il Plin and Gli Scarrozzati by Parma goalkeeper Pierluigi Frattali, match analyst Marco Piccioni, Alessandro and Cristiana Lucarelli (on the screen), italian artist Platinette, Paolo De Gregorio, Antonio Barone, Leonardo Cagnolati and a lot of friends and kids that spontaneously take part to the show.

Here the lyrics with a quick translation:

Questa avventura qui, che è iniziata dalla D / Come ben sai, nessuno l’ha fatta mai [This adventure that started from Serie D as you know nobody never did the same]
E’ incredibile un tris del genere / Solo Cristo, ci mise meno a risorgere [such an hat trick it is incredible / Only Christ took less for a resurrection]

E se non c’ero io, che paravo col Pordenon / Oggi eravamo, ancora a sentirci dir Bagolon
Dai cugini che, certo che sono parenti / Eppure non li ho visti mai un po’ sorridenti
[and if I was not there with my savings against Pordenone today we would be still there hearing us be called Bagoloni (disparaging nickname used by Reggiana fans) from never-smiling cousins]

Fra due anni noi, vinciam la Champions / Vinciam perchè ci abbiamo preso gusto tutti assieme [in two year we will win Champions League and we’ll win because we all get to like it all together]
Finchè gli Scarrozzati / A Collecchio passeranno
Vorrà dire che si festeggia tutti a fine anno
[Until Gli Scarrozzati will pass from Collecchio it means that we will get party all together at the end of the season]

Da quando ha smesso, mio marito di giocar / Me lo ritrovo, sempre a casa che non sa che far [Since my husbandstop to play I always find him in the house doing nothing]
Ma che dici Cri, a casa son tutto per te / Piuttosto in campo, senza di me dubito che… [but… what are you saying, Cri? At home I’m all yours otherwise on the field, without me, I doubt that…]

REFRAIN (Fra due anni noi…)

Voi avete vinto, grazie mille aiutini / Sky in D, playoff ed infine i messaggini [You won because thousands helps: Sky tv in D, Playoff and sms affair]
Ehi ehi ehi ma basta su, fatevene una ragione / Dietro all’impresa, c’è l’amor di queste persone [hey hey hey, com’on stop! Take a reason, behind the success there is the love of these people]

REFRAIN (Fra due anni noi…) X 3

Scarrozzati loves Parma

You surely already heard about them if you followed Serie D through ParmaFanzine.it. Gli Scarrozzati is a theatrical comic company made by members of Istituto Sacra Famiglia in Inzago (Milan). The institute cares about people on wheelchair (after accidents, due to Als or other) and theater activity is a way to joke on their situation and most of all to express themselves.

Paolo De Gregorio is the head of the project and a huge Parma fan and when he contacted Parma Calcio in summer 2015 – in the middle of our crisis – he anyway received Captain answer as a demonstrations of interest. Few months later Captain Lucarelli went to their show in Inzago then the friendship started and involved other players and members of Parma staff and fans. During that year Scarrozzati assisted to some match and Baraye also dedicated a goal to them: unfortunately that episode costed him a yellow card that let him loose last Serie D match against Delta Rovigo.

Do you remember Captain t-shirt to celebrate the record of scoring in 4 different catergories with the same colors? It was made as fund raising for Scarrozzati an their Institute.

The Plin

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.

[if you like the story and you are thinking in registering thePlin.com domain don’t waist time in looking for, we altready bought it]

Ps: Thanks to il Plin, by the heart.
