On second thought, maybe you DON'T want your team to win

First, the good news: A female sex siren has said she will strip if her team wins its last couple games.

Now, the bad news: It's Sophia Loren, the 72-year-old actress whose sex siren days were back in the 50s and 60s.

According to the story linked above, Loren is a big fan of the Naples, Italy club soccer team which has fallen on hard times since it won its first Italian championship 20 years ago. Currently, Napoli is third in Serie B, Italy's second division, and have five games left to force their way into the top two or face a promotion playoff. Said Loren, "I hope that Napoli win these last few games. You watch if we go up I will do a striptease. The fans have a total passion, the city deserves promotion."

Yes, but do they deserve it from someone born in 1934?

Look, I think it's wondeful and all that a woman of any age is a) that big of a sports fan, b) willing to strip to inspire her team (assuming this is indeed inspiration) and c) that secure to think people want to see it. But come on. I mean, Benny's Nana is in her 70s. I don't like watching her at the buffet on coupon night. I sure as shit don't want to see her naked.

So I'm going to go out on a limb and say, with that as motivation, my early prediction for those last 5 games is: Nipoli - 4, Other Teams - 82.

Ed. Note: I hope you people appreciate the lengths I go to to give you a laugh. After working on the picture in this post, I now want to gouge my eyes out. You think you almost tossed your cookies looking at the edited version, I had to had to spend time on the original. And let me just say -- you can't unring a bell, folks.

I imagine the big brother search record keeping system at Google has you pegged for one sick puppy.

I can only imagine the crap you had to sort through to find that.

Funny stuff!

I believe you now owe us some old school Sophia Loren skin.

The gesture would have been much more inspirational at THIS PHASE of her career.
