It’s a sad day for Italian soccer fans and when I say SAD, I mean S-A-D.
I was a new transplant for the 2006 World Cup, where I was happily introduced to the men in blue. I would not be overstating my instant affection for the team if I say it was LOVE at FIRST SIGHT.
Come on, ladies. You know what I mean. Luca Toni, Gennaro Gattuso, Fabio Cannavaro …
You can see more here … if you get my drift.
But, ladies (and I say this because I know you will be more distraught, if only for physically selfish reasons, than the men)
Fabio is out.
Yep. Apparently only six hours after landing in Austria Fabio was injured in a collision with teammate Giorgio Chiellini and will miss the 2008 European Cup.
What am I gonna watch now?
