A pilgrimage to San Siro and beyond

Featuring Icardi as a bird, Icardi as a bobblehead, and the greatest stadium in the world If the Mauro Icardi transfer saga could be likened to any phenomenon in the city of Milan, it would be the pigeons in the Piazza del Duomo.
If you?ve never had the pleasure of visiting, the tradition is to hold out some grain and a pigeon will arrive in an instant, literally landing on your body to snack. It?s a nice exchange while it lasts. They get their food; you get an experience.
But then you don?t want to feed them anymore. You?ve moved on, you?ve got other things to do. Thanks for the memories, feathered Icardi, but it?s time to say goodbye.
Yet the pigeon remains latched on, ruffling its feathers and causing a scene. There?s plenty of other tourists in the square, maybe from Turin or Manchester, offering more grain than you can manage. So why won?t it leave" What does it gain by staying" Is its pigeon agent-wife making it stay" Why won?t it just piss off already"
Throw in a pigeon love triangle, a botched pigeon swap deal and an eventual flight to Pigeon Saint-Germain (Woof. That sounded better in my head), and they?re similar, right"

This is just one of many ridiculous thoughts stemming from my recent trip to Milan. Most importantly, this was my first chance to see the San Siro. Here?s what I found out along the way.

The Stadio Giuseppe Meazza isn?t exactly in the beating heart of the city, but the metro service means you can travel from most places to the stadium like a breeze. There?s an Inter/AC Milan store before you even leave the closest station. Whether or not all the items displayed there are official is another question; Milan, like most other tourist destinations in Italy, is filled with unofficial shirts, scarves and more gimmicks for sale on every street. The stadium hits you straight away. Big. Very big. Looks as if it?s about to take off back to its home planet. Brutal against the Milanese skyline. Utterly stunning.
On this particular day, a man sporting a Flamengo shirt giddily runs in front of the stadium. Flapping in his hands is a flag, also displaying the red-black colours of the Brazilian club. He poses for a photo proudly; displaying your home club colours at this legendary arena, whether through wearing a jersey or dotting stickers on surrounding lampposts, is a popular ritual. Shame about the Rossoneri colour scheme, mind.
The San Siro shop doesn?t beat around the bush. As soon as you set foot inside, the store splits into two and you?re presented with a decision; do you like red or blue with your black" For neutral tourists, it?s not an easy decision. For myself, it?s innate.

On both sides of the store, there?s a few stairs leading down to a long window. Through this window is the turf itself, the Curva Nord towering over you to the left. For a w...
