Award Tour

The first thing I did upon learning that Totti had won the award the Golden Foot, was say "well deserved". The second thing I did, much like Chris, was to go to Wikipedia to see what it was. I had no idea what it was, but I knew it was well deserved.

One thing is causing me some distress, however. I'm fairly sure Totti celebrated his 34th birthday at the end of last month, and this is an award which only players 29 and above are eligible for. That's a five year window. Unless they meant to give him the last five years worth of awards, and just forgot to in the heat of the moment, they can stick that award someplace dark.

Roberto Carlos during his Turkish adventure, really? And didn't Del Piero spend much of the year for which he won his award in serie B?

Bah, humbug.
