Mmmm, Italy

1 Jun

Now, I grew up supporting Italy and they are always in my heart. Gigi Buffon is one man who has always made me weak at the knees. I mean, look at him. Yum. Anyhow, it’s been a long time since Italy got any love on this blog so here’s a bit of mama mia! hotness.

My fine Italian gentlemen were getting ready for their official Euro 2012 pictures – suited up, in their kits and individual shots. Here’s a few examples.

Andrea Barzagli

Christian Maggio

Salvatore Sirigu

Claudio Marchisio

Gianluigi Buffon

Here’s Gigi waiting for for his shot. He looks a wee bit silly sitting on that tiny stool, but hot is hot and you can’t take that away from him.

Antonio Di Natale, Antonio Cassano and Morgan De Sanctis

Gigi giving someone the evil eye

Gigi is nothing if not animated in conversation (a quality I share, I’m all hands gesturing and face making). These shots from the press conference cracked me up. I have no idea what he was talking about but he was definitely feeling what he was saying.

Oh Gigi, keep being you and never, ever change. I couldn’t live without your hotness or faces like these! (Photos via Daylife)

    ITALY!!!!!! I’m so happy to see them on here! Gigi with Chiello, Barz and Bonucci (oh look, it’s JuveItalia) are, arguably, the best defensive backline in Europe. Spain vs Italy is going to KILL me.

    I would look like Gigi too if I had to go through a press conference after the latest match fixing scandal in Italian football became big news and had police busting in on the training camp. Sheesh, what a mess! Wishing the Azzurri the best and hopefully they respond as well as they did in WC 2006 (but not too well mind you, Spain supporter here!)

    Gigi is quintessentially Italian , no?
    Looking at the two group shots, I can envision the boys being Clark Kent-like, stepping into a phone booth in the suit and stepping back out in the team kit! (cue the super hero music).

      *starts devising evil plan to get the Kent look-a-likes to forget the kit underneath their suits, forcing them so step out of the phone booth suit-less and kit-less* 😉

    First I saw Gigi 4 years ago in Euro 2008 and I have been in love with him ever since. Apart from the fact that he’s the sweetest guy in football and he has those gorgeous eyes <3<3, he is also the best goalkeeper in the world! You have great taste, cheers!
