ah the curse...and I wouldn't change a thing.
Forza Azzurri and best wishes that you all enjoy the tournament.
I grew up with Italians (mostly Juventus fans) and I got to hear this all the time.
Thanks for the memories of loudly and colorfully cursing the shitty playing of our team, eating copious amounts of sausage with polenta, bombolini, cannoli, espresso, infinite varieties of salami, and grappa, all mixed up in a big whirl.
Oh, and the officiating sucked today. As did all of the goals. An auto-goal, a completely bogus penalty call, and two goals where the goaltender seemed glued to the ground until the last moment.
