AIM: # 1 Posted on 12.1.06 1501.32 | Instant Rating: 5.57 An article on Yahoo's front page today talks about how Italian youth are crazy about WWE programming. Sadly, no mention of Nunzio as a beloved Italian hero... Yahoo (news.yahoo.com) A brief snippet Originally posted by Yahoo National soccer coach Marcello Lippi recently complained that home-grown talent risked drying up because children no longer played soccer in the streets as they were hooked on wrestling. In November, the muscle-bound heroes of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc's television shows toured Italy. The appearances sold out in a few days. "I prefer to watch wrestling than soccer because it's more dramatic; anything can happen," said Oliviero D'Ascanio, a 9-year-old schoolboy in Rome who, like his friends, also follows the behind-the-scenes storylines that come with the WWE product.

AIM: # 2 Posted on 12.1.06 1551.43 | Instant Rating: 3.69 You can always tell when the writer follows wrestling when he composes gems like this one: "Italian boys have new heroes: beefy, loud American wrestlers like Rey Mysterio and Undertaker." The beefy, gregarious Rey Rey. I guess they only get Smackdown in Italy...and they still like it? I just remembered that im absent minded wait i mean i lost my mind, i cant find it.

Call me old fashioned, call me naive, call me whatever, but I just don't believe it.

I certainly couldn't place it.

Ah! That explains it. I still haven't watched that. Thanks.
Thanks for doing these cfgb! I wasn't watching wrestling at all during this time so it's basically like first run discussion for me! I think I've read every word of them, so cheers!
