Derby Fever

There is nothing quite like the Derby della Madonnina. There are plenty of heated rivalries, but this one involves family. The level of passion is only exceeded by the mazing coreo, at least in the Curva Sud. And fans all over the world get caught up in the passion, a phenomenon known as Derby Fever.

Ewwww.... gross! That Milan fan is touching an Inter fan!

Derby Fever can be as simple as checking your phone more often for news and updates, trolling Interisti on Twitter, or making plans to watch the Derby with friends. But often, it involves more extreme activities, such as quarantining your home from all things blue and black, creating your own coreo, or buying a last minute plane ticket to Milano.

However severe your diagnosis is, we want to hear how you are treating this epidemic (or maybe how you are attempting to escalate it.) Please use the comment section to explain your symptoms and what you are doing to endure until Sunday. There will be a vicious rant in the form of a Derby preview tomorrow, but let’s help each other survive this epidemic and dream of another Derby win together.
