    Italian Prison Inmates Sure Do Love Mario Balotelli (Video)

    Gianluigi Buffon has won eight Serie A goalkeeper of the year awards, three UEFA Team of the Year honors, one European Footballer of the Year award, a Yashin Award, and most importantly, he backstopped the Italian national team to the World Cup title in 2006. Mario Balotelli has won…well, nothing really. So why would Balotelli […]

    Chievo’s Marcolini Shows Some Range With 45-meter Goal (Video)

    It isn’t often that a misplayed ball just inside your own half of center turns into a goal less than two seconds later, but then again, there aren’t many players with the accuracy and range of Chievo’s Michele Marcolini. During yesterday’s Italian Serie A action, Marcolini was on the receiving end of an errant pass […]

    Milan And Bari Give Us The Strangest Pre-Match Warm-Ups Ever! (Video)

    Talk about confusion.  I can only imagine that is what fans at the San Siro were faced with after watching what appeared to be players from AC Milan and Bari taking the pitch for warm-ups and performing some rather strange acts, whether it was dancing, swimming, limboing, or playing frisbee. Despite bearing a striking resemblance […]

    Ezequiel Lavezzi Scores An Amazing Goal (Video)

    Italian soccer is often criticized for its defensive focus and lack of offensive creativity.  However, during yesterday’s game between Napoli and AC Milan, Ezequiel Lavezzi silenced many of those critics with what may be the most creative goal we will see this season in European club competition.

    Italian And French Football Clubs Brawl During Not-So-Friendly Friendly

    The Italians and the French have never seemed to enjoy each others’ company on the soccer pitch, and that was evident once again when Sardinia’s Cagliari took on Corsica’s Bastia in what was supposed to be a friendly match on Wednesday.  Instead, it turned out to be anything but friendly as the teams from the […]

    Blonde Flashes Camera To Help Cheer Up Italians (Video)

    Italians were dealt a devastating blow last week when their international soccer team was bounced from the 2010 FIFA World Cup after a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Slovakia in their final match of the group stage.  The loss left many of the country’s die-hard soccer fans in mourning, but there was one special blonde that […]

    Totti Chops Down The Legs Of Balotelli…Timberrrr!!!!!

    I think it is fair to say that approximately 95% of all soccer players who hit the ground in pain are likely putting on an act for the referees, but every once in a while there is some truth behind their cries of agony. Italian soccer sensation Francesco Totti has become well known for his […]

    Brawl Erupts During Basketball Friendly Between Italy vs. Canada

    Total Pro Sports – It was supposed to be a friendly exhibition game, but things turned ugly late in the second half after Italy’s Stefano Mancinelli elbowed Canada’s Aaron Doornekamp in the back of the head.  That would spark a bench clearing brawl between the two clubs, bringing back memories of previous incidents we have […]

    Swimmer Flavia Zoccari’s Butt Tears Through Swimsuit

    Total Pro Sports – We have all heard about athletes withdrawing from competitions due to a tear near their groin area, but hardly ever like the one experienced by Italian swimmer Falvia Zoccari.  Guess that one extra plate of pasta really can make a difference. Just prior to the beginning of the 200 meter finals […]

    USA Makes Confederation Cup Semis…Did I Miss Something?

    Total Pro Sports – They started out the first game well, leading Italy 1-0 after the half while playing down a man, but it all seemed to go down hill from there for the USA men’s soccer team.  They would allow three second half goals in that game, losing 3-1 to the Azzuri.  Just three […]
