30,000 Genoa fans hold mock funeral for relegated Sampdoria

When Sampdoria sealed its relegation from Serie A with a loss against Palermo, captain Angelo Palombo was so distraught that he wept on the pitch like he just put down Old Yeller. It was a disastrous season -- going from fourth place last year to finishing 18th and being dropped down to Serie B -- and one that will hurt Sampdoria fans for some time. So to poke those wounds while they're still wide open, fans of fierce city rivals Genoa CFC (which finished 10th this season) held a massive mock funeral in the streets for their doomed neighbors.
