Inter: A title with a little bit of Tango

Yes, they won the league title last year but it was on a desk and not on the pitch. Nobody will remember that title.

But today, Internazionale became the Italian champion for the season and they won it in style, deservingly.

By beating Siena 2-1 with both goals scored by controversial Marco MATERAZZI, Inter took their tally to 15 league titles. This is the first time they win the league on the pitch since 1989.

This success has an extra value for a few Argentinians who are wearing the black and blue, but specially for the big captain: Javier ZANETTI.

He's suffered immensely since arriving to the "nerazzurri", but his work rate and determination, as well as his talent and commitment have made him a symbol of the Italian giants. He deserves to be the first one to lift that trophy.

Along with him, in today's starting lineup, there were another 4 Argies: Nicolás BURDISSO, Esteban CAMBIASSO, Santiago SOLARI and Julio CRUZ. Mariano GONZALEZ stayed in the bench, while Hernán CRESPO is injured and Walter SAMUEL was sidelined.

So it is a triumph for a great bunch of Argentinians and they deserve it.

Congratulations to them!

San Antonio SPURS are in trouble as they were defeated at home, by the Denver NUGGETS by 89-95. Not one of the best night for Manu GINOBILI as he only had 9 points to his credit. Fabricio OBERTO manage 8 points to his credit.

No doubt its only the first game, with six more left to play, but SPURS has to win at least one game on Denver soil and not to allow AI and Anthony the same kind of performance they had tonight at home.
