What would today be without a brief note referencing the world's largest sporting event. France and Italy will settle on the pitch today who will have bragging rights in the years to come. Those of us in the USA (for the most part) miss out on the ferver generated by this grand sporting event. We have readers from both France and Italy (more from France) on SC.com, and I wish you all a great game today. For the record, I'm taking Italy 2-1 in a highly contested game.
