In the inaugural match of IMS intramural football, the 2nd-years have beat the 1st-years 7-5 on a stormy Saturday in Milan-Lambrate. Fans and players then retired to my apartment for tea, supper, and party games.
The tightly-fought victory by the second years was played to what appeared to be utter exhaustion by both sides, as they were pelted by driving rain for over an hour.
IMS-Milan, by the way, has excellent sporting facilities. The Crespi Sport Village is run by the city of Milan and located in the heart of Lambrate, a neighborhood where many IMS students live. The facilities accommodate rugby, tennis, paddle tennis, gymnastics, volleyball, handball, and basketball.
After the match, we walked around the corner to my place, where we warmed ourselves with, among other delicacies, Nutella hot chocolate, wine-braised chicken, and Cards Against Humanity.
