The Italian-American Pro Bowl Squad

In honor of Columbus Day, my good friends at the Steeler blog "I Wish I Was a Rooney" put together a 22-man NFL squad made up entirely of active players with Italian ancestry. Just one question: how does Franco Harris, he of the "Franco's Italian Army", lose out at the RB spot to Travis Henry? You'll have to read it to find out.

Regardless of my minor disagreement, a fun read.

Tony Romo, he of the 5 interceptions, massive overratedness, but exceptional luck, also sounds like he might be a fellow pizan.

Convenient to see Olindo Mare left off the list. Of course, that probably has to do more with Vinatieri's clutchitude and Mare's penchant to choke.
