TURIN, October 31, 2012 – Thirty October 2010, two years yesterday. A piece of life for everyone, a significant period for an athlete. Seven hundred and thirty days when so many things have happened, and many others, however, have remained hypothesis without ever becoming reality. For example, to see Andrea Pirlo out of the field defeated in the championship. From that day, October 30, 2010, it is not happened.

Ballon d’Or The 2012 of Andrea Pirlo, is a hymn to football: from the ride to the title to the beautiful European until a autumn perhaps less shiny, but always of the highest quality and characterized by three freekicks imbued with class and guile against Parma, Rome and Siena. Just two years ago began the last act of the adventure of Andrea in Milan: Allegri saw him mezzala and then did not see him at all. You can leave, he said. To Juve? Better. The Rossoneri fans consoled themselves by thinking at the age of Pirlo (now 33 and a half years), but the continuity of the regista continues to surprise everyone. This season has been in the field already 1,087 minutes (697′ in the league, 270′ in the Champions League, 120 ‘in the Super Cup) in Juve only Bonucci played more (1,110′). Quality, but also quantity. And a great desire to properly close a brilliant year, perhaps with a good position in the ranking of the Golden Ball. Few players in the world are as good as Andrea. No one has this funny habit of never losing.
