While U.S. residents may know it simply as football, in Italy the sport of American football as played by Marco Nordio attracts a small but vocal contingent of loyal fans.
As a member of the popular Muli Trieste team based in Trieste, Italy, Nordio and the other players competed in local and regional contests. Muli Trieste, loosely translated as the Trieste Mules, was the first American football team in the city of Trieste and was founded in 1983 under the leadership of president Giuliano Guidi and head coach Corrado Savio. The team participated in championship play with other teams from throughout Europe and reached the playoffs on several occasions.
American football continues to enjoy popularity in Italy under the auspices of the Italian Football League, also known as the IFL. Teams from Milano, Parma, Bologna and Catania are among the best known in the IFL. Other Italian teams compete in competitions arranged by the European Football League or the International Federation of American Football as part of their regular schedules or to determine championship standings for multi-league play.
American football is not one of the sports included in the Olympic Games. While attempts have been made to promote this sport to the International Olympic Committee, limitations on the number of athletes allowed to compete in the games and already overcrowded schedules have made the inclusion of American football in the Olympics a near impossibility. Additionally, American football lacks the broad global popularity of most other Olympic sports and may not attract the attention needed to justify adding it at this time.
The internet has opened up so much of the world to so many of us, in ways we could never imagine. But sometimes it’s the small stuff that you can do online that is interesting.

I’d never have gone to the effort of going to a land-based casino even though I’ve always been curious to play the classic casino games – like roulette, baccarat and poker. Continue reading

Nowadays people always want to be connected to one another with the use of technology. Gone are the days when you have to spend so much to talk to your love ones abroad. I remember when my husband was abroad I literally had to limit the phone calls because at the back of my mind I was thinking of how much this is going to cost me when the phone bill comes.It’s a bitter pill that I had to swallow the phone bill being the very bitter after taste.
During that time the Free sms to Smart Communications was totally unheard of thank goodness someone thought of setting up Askimoi.com. Which is an online SMS portal, allowing you to send up to text messages to any mobile phone in the Philippines with no charges. It’s fast and it’s free so why not give it a try today. Another fun fact is that now you can send SMS in any language (Chinese, Cyrillic, Greek, Korean, Japanese, Hindi, Arabic or Thai) Now that’s what I call amazing!!
