    Here's a truncated snip from the Geno interview. Some subtitles included to clarify what is going on. ;)

    Wonderful. I always wondered what he thought of the Boneyard. It took a trip to Italy to find out.

    Geno's Italian apparently was causing the digital translator stress and resulted in numerous ridiculous spellings.

    What can I say? Except I watch this at 8:00 in the morning and now I am supposed to preach with a straight face. A blessed World Communion Sunday to all of you across the many denominations that participate.

    This was GREAT. I showed it to my Italian speaking spouse, who never understands what I am doing with this basketball stuff; thought it was a riot. First score ever in our house for the Boneyard.

    that was really great. my favorite was his answer to whether he'd consider moderating the BY and he answered "maybe, someday, when he's reduced to eating oatmeal and yogurt." i'm no cunning linguist, but it did sound to me like his Italian is really pretty good, but that he speaks it with a bit of an American accent...

    Wow the world famous Boneyard mentioned in Italy. Maybe the mods can tell us who around the world reads the Boneyard.

    Anwar Al-Awlaki, when he's not fiddling with his own website "Inspire."

    Haven't noticed him online for the past few days.

    Fantastic post, Biff - since I do not speak Italian, I am not sure when the fake translation began or ended:)!

    That was wonderful. Except, of course, the foolish notion that some of us think we're bears. First, we rarely think. Second, we are bears - unthinking ones, perhaps, but bears nonetheless.
