It has just been reported that a consortium of Italian Corporations and Businessmen has agreed to establish a National Football League team in Rome. It will take an investment of $25 Billion to re-furbish The Coliseum–updating seating, restrooms and providing up-to-date Jumbo-Trons. Perfect for watching Lions and Tigers and Bears, OH MY! The Neapolitans, as the team will be called, are expected to begin play during the 2015 NFL Season.
The new team will be added to the NFL’s Northeast Division, assumably fitting in with all of the Italians in the New York City and Boston areas. Initially, it is rumored that the team’s colors will be the same as the ice cream–chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Stay tuned for further updates.
P.S. IF YOU HAVEN’T GUESSED YET, THE TEAM HAS NOT, AS YET, APPLIED TO THE NFL.
