He is also an extremely handsome man! There was a little Italian place on 13th off University run by a friendly Neapolitan - we started talking soccer one day and he pulled out a photo album and said "all the serie A stars come here when they are in NY!" The food here wasn't so great so I had my doubts, but sure enough there were dozens of pix of Italian soccer greats. "this one is my favorite" and he flipped to a grinning Fabio C. He said Canna & Batistuta were the 2 nicest guys he'd had in the restaurant....
* recently watched roma's scudetto game against parma from 2001 - aging thuram, always grinning buffon, marco di vaio, the cannavaro bros - good team!
