Maarten Stekelenburg: Ripped And Ready For Rome
Having just signed a four-year deal with AS Roma, the Dutch international is taking each and every one of his delectable midsection treats to the Italian capital to enlist in Bojan Krkic and Gabriel Heinze’s hot-to-trot newbies club. Anyone else have an abruptly precarious sense of excitement for the 2011/12 Serie A season to start?
By nature, with every transfer signature pen put to paper comes the all important squad initiation rituals. If we could take matters into our own hands as we routinely pretend we’re authorised to do, we’d put Maarten and his tops and bottoms through an impossibly difficult game of hide-and-go-seek. The stakes would be high (his personal wardrobe and professional kits) and we’d play for keeps (if he doesn’t seek with success, his apparel is ours for the taking and he’d play in the nude).
Who’s with us? Against us? Any talented and gifted minds have additional, comically tortuous activities for Mr Stekelenburg & co. to speak of?
