Ciao Bloggisti

I’m soooo nervous right now. This evening Italy is playing Romania in Euro 08. If they don’t tie or win, our Azzurri are O-U-T out! Fingers crossed, or incrociamo le dita as they say here. Oh no! I just realized that today is Friday the 13th, too! Worse luck! What can I do to ward off the bad vibes? I know!! A special Euro 08 Sexy Ugly list!!!! It’s the only thing that will work. Here goes:

1. Simone Perrotta (midfielder – Italy)

2. Jens Lehmann (goalkeeper – Germany)

3. Iker Casillas (goalkeeper – Spain)

4. Thierry Henry (striker – France)

and last but not least, the sexiest ugliest of them all….

5. Gennaro “Ringhio” Gattuso (midfielder – Italy)

Special category: the sexy and the just plain fugly

The other day I found this cute clip, featuring soccer’s version of the Beauty and the Beast: Italy’s Luca Toni and Franck Ribéry from France. You couldn’t have put together two more different looking people, well, except DeVito and Schwarzenegger. But I just looove the way Toni carries himself. Just look at that swagger, the way he sits back on the seats in the stadium. So hot!!!

Let’s just hope this is enough for the Italian national team to get their mojo back. If it works, I’ll make another sexy ugly list, as painful as it is for me.

Forza Azzurri!!!!!

    And I have to say that while this pic of Rino Gattuso isn’t exactly flattering, when he trims that facial hair of his he’s downright tasty.


    I know but I couldn’t find anything better! Even my daughter loves Ringhio!!

    Whoa girl! Don’t forget his wife is Scottish, very jealous and just might read this 😉
