A Few Last Minute Blue Storms Game Details and a GREAT Dinner!

Friday, 25 May, 2018

First, this breaking story about Italian nonnas is definitely NOT fake news . . .

I found this to be true for the
first time in Enna, Sicily in 2008

Although all of our physical preparation for Saturday night's big game against the 7-0, #3 ranked, Group C Champion Busto Arsizio Blue Storms ended with Thursday night's practice, I still had several organizational details to attend to today.

I also had to continue my daily battle with the weeds laying siege to the Villa Skorpion, read a bit and then journey to the Esselunga Super Market for provisions.

By late afternoon we decided that we needed to go out for a proper Friday night dinner date, but where?  

Enza is our
Venegono Superiore Librarian
The last time we went to the local public library to check out a couple of DVDs and donate some English language titles to their collection, we had asked her for a recommendation of a good place to dine fine food and adult beverages in the area.

Enza did not bat an eye as she instantly responded, "Che SpettaColo di Sapori in the village of Morazzone on Via Europa."

So we we decided to follow her lead and drive the 15 minutes to Morazzone.


Enza was dead on point! 

This ristorante offered us an amazing array of sauces to go with the fresh ingredients of the meal.

The plate that you see here is the smallest of four seafood antipasto plates that was brought to us over a 15 minute period.

We thought that we were done and had misinterpreted the menu as to what our main dishes were.

No, we were told, these are all just part of our antipasto order.

We were in trouble.

 Out came my pasta al nero


It was incredibly good and brought back many fine dining memories from our two seasons coaching the Catania Elephants in Sicily in 2008 and 2009.

 Laurie loved her artichoke-seafood
pasta as well

As for the matching adult beverage . . .

 . . . it was indeed Prosecco Time

Life in Italy is

On another note about the local international American football scene . . .

Italy's Division I leading
Milan Seamen will host
an International Tournament
Championship Game in June

The Seamen, coached by Europe Warriors DC Mike Wood, will play the winner of the Calanda Broncos (Switzerland) at Potsdam Royals (Germany) game being contested this coming Sunday.

We will be playing our Wild Card playoff game either on the 9th or 10th of June at a sight and against an opponent to be named on Monday.

If you can not make it to our game, then I highly recommend going to see he Seamen's game.
