Lazio, the regional team that sounds like it’s about to sail off on a three-hour tour, is not so well loved by the ever-faithful.

This one is on the elevator door off the rear tracks of Termini. I’m not sure if they mean that the Pisa team is “the shittiest,” or if it refers to the actual city – the trains for which leave from just a few meters away.
