Viva Italia!

The FIFA World Cup is finally over, the Italians victorious over the French. After 4 World Cup failures, Italy can claim the title to the best soccer team in the world. The North End of Boston is going insane with joy, City Hall Plaza is crowded with fans jumping up and down, and all over the world, life can go back to normal. TVs can be shut off, kids can go outside and play soccer instead of watching it, and all is well with the world of football.

Tonight is gonna be one HUGE party in the North End. I wish we could go, but I'm thinking it might be just too much insanity for us. But man, what a great sports spectacle is the World Cup. Makes the Stuporbowl look positively pathetic. A month of sport that brings the world a bit closer together. That ain't a bad thing at all. No siree.

We don't follow soccer, but it is wonderful the way the whole world rallied around their favorite teams and watched it all. Good for Italy!! Mr. kenju will be proud.

Michele sent me.

Back again, to say thanks for the visit, and to tell you that I, like your friend, realize how very lucky I was to be raised by my adoptive parents instead of my birth parents. I have no doubt I was raised by the people I was supposed to be with.

The crazies have been driving around all afternoon. I'm glad I parked the van and kept the kids inside. I'm all for fandom, but when it endangers lives, it's time to cut it off.

And I missed it! But for a good reason. I was visiting Ellis Island, something else that, very briefly, in a huge room full of hopeful and terrified people (as one put it, "hoping to escape all the 'isms' of their lives"), brought the world closer together. (And which also made me appreciate my country a little more than I tend to do lately.)

Yay for Italy!! I wish I lived in a city that had an Italian neighborhood. My mother was born in Italy and my father's parents are also Italian. I was there in the 80s when they won and it was madness. I was only 5 at the time, but I remember it vividly.

Bravo, Italia, from a three-quarters Italian girl married to a fellow Italian. So I have an unpronouncable maiden AND married names.

Happy birthday to you!
