mother of skaters
i don't know that much about football either, but being Italian it's in my DNA as Pizza or Pasta ah! i can tell off sides! ( really, i just watch the national team). to be back on topic (sort of) i'd like to see an italian team medal, but we're too weak in women and pairs don't look very strong andDella Monica/Guarise had a rough couple of years who knows in what shape they are.I'm still hoping for Italy to get that Team Olympic medal in figure skating. They've been so close, twice now. Maybe Daniel can help make that happen (and I'm sure Matteo will have his part to play).
Thanks @flanker for explaining the sheepskin coat thing. I'm never going to forget - it'll be helpful whenever I read google translated Russian interviews and I happen to read quite a few of those.
Contrary to most of my compatriots I have no idea about football, so I'll not interfere in that discussion!
