In The Finest Traditions Of The Italian And The French Military
White flags for sale at the concession stands

Italy and France are locked in battle. Things did look good for each side initially, but from there, it was quagmire city. A Frenchman does a dastardly cheap shot. The offended Italian just lies there belly-up and doesn't fight back. No one knows exactly how to react. Fight hard... give up? Who knows? Confusion reigns.

Stalemate after stalemate after stalemate. It just drags on endlessly. No clear winner. For the love of God, someone make it stop!

Finally... finally... possibly out of sheer exhaustion, something happens that makes the other side "the loser".

Could I be referring to any of a hundred episodes in the annals of Italian and French military history, or am I talking about the recently concluded World Kickball Tournament? You be the judge.

All joking aside.... congrats Italy!

At least those frogs finally lost! I was suprized they didn't just give up those damn pagans. The coach was using the tarot cards before the game, and cut a player since he was a scorpio... damn freaks

Things sure went downhill for Italy after the passing of Caesar, eh?
