The English and the Italians are coming to Boston

Now, this is not some bad joke.

In fact, if you are a soccer fan, then the English and the Italians coming to Boston might mean one thing...road trip! The Boston Globe recently reported the details.
Organizers are planning an exhibition soccer game between Liverpool FC and AS Roma at Fenway Park this summer, according to multiple sources involved in the negotiations.
The match would be part of United States tours for both teams, the first since controlling interest in the clubs was purchased by Boston-based investors. ...

The game would be part of a tournament involving Chelsea FC and, possibly, Celtic FC. Matches will also be held in Chicago (Comiskey Park or Wrigley Field) and New York (Yankee Stadium).
Dates have not been set. Liverpool has tentatively made reservations to be in the Boston area from June 20 through July 4.
As I said, road trip.
