Taking The Trash Out In Naples

While the U.S. embassy has urged tourists to stay away from Naples because of it's nasty smells, prosecutors in the city have brought charges against 37 of Italian soccer's "bigwigs." It all stems from last year's Calciopoli scandal: it was Neapolitan law enforcement wire taps that triggered Italian soccer's biggest-ever scandal. At least up until this point.

But surely we can all put two and two together here. I bet you thought that Tony Soprano's job in the waste-disposal business was a cover, right? We all know that garbage is the game, baby.
