favorite men continued, Gennaro Gattuso



Can someone please explain to me the whole taking off his pants thing? I know trading shirts with the opposing team is a tradition but pants?

As a former midfielder I appreciate Gattuso's skills on the field. As a woman I appreciate all his other skills. I think there is something very sexy about Gattuso.

This is awesome, because I have taken a real liking to Gattuso just recently. He's doing this ad campaign for Vodafone with Totti, and I didn't even know who he was, so I asked my husband, hey, who's that guy? He's cute! And he just is. Here's a link to one of the ads. They're always on like these silly missions. Of course the ads are ridiculous but not as bad as the rest of Italian TV.

I'm not too thrilled about Gattuso's facial hair, but he's still hot as hell! OH...and... I'LL ADMIT IT! I had many "pause and stare" moments watching the video. I fell in love with Gattuso and Totti the first time I saw their Vodafone commercial. Life...Is...Now! :)

Tracey K. in Ohio: Oh-Kay. I've never heard of this guy in my life, but him in his underwear on the soccer field in the video......... makes me feel like I should have a cigarette! (LOL!) Whew! Keep this 'man' thing up! I'm enjoying it! Have a great weekend everyone!

shelley - thank you for linking to the ad. I love the one w/Santa.


gibber - wow is correct.


giulia - I'm digging the facial hair. It says "I'm molto manly" to me. LOL

And yes, I also "paused and stared". It couldn't be helped


sognatrice - perhaps I need to spend some time in Calabria. :)


T.K. in Ohio - You have a good weekend as well. Girl, have that cigarette. Glad I could help bring some joy into the world. LOL!

Gatusso is one of my favorites! Del Piero and Zambrotta being the other two. I had Torino on my '06 itinerary because I was going to see Del Piero no matter what. The whole Italian soccer scandal got in the way of my plans. I made it to Torino, but no game. Just another reason to go back. ;)
Good weekend to you.

You might get a kick out of this. Not sure how old it is.

I love the hand gestures. Don't quite get all the dialogue.

Now you can meet up with Beckam in Beverly hills. See if they let him shoot a commercial, too.
