Comments for the name Francesco

Comments for FRANCESCO:

There is a Italian player called Francesco Totti who plays soccer for Italy. I live in Austalia. I'm part Italian (and French-Canadian) and ever since the world cup where Australia got an UNFAIR penalty shot against them which was put in the goals by Francesco Totti I've learnt to hate him. I hate it when ever I hear the name Francesco because it reminds me of him. :(
