POP Goes The World!

Jun 2010

Guido Blend

4 years ago,the Italians took their 4th World Cup title (the only country who has more is Brazil with 5 titles) and since your humble host is a native Italian,I gots to re-pree-zent!

"The Azzurri" will be playing their first match this afternoon against Paraguay. Nobody expects them to repeat,in fact most of the predictions don't even have them getting out of the quarter finals,which is why they need all the help they can get!

So I'll be sending out the "wop vibe" this morning with the ONE thing ALL Italians respond positively to...FOOD!!!

A sort of "Mangi Mojo",if you will! FORZA ITALIA!!!
