He died for his country...


ROME (Reuters) - A 77-year-old Italian pensioner fell off a
ladder and died as he tried to attach Italy's flag to a pole
ahead of Sunday's World Cup final against France.

The man, Rodolfo Profili, was raising the flag on a patch
of land he owned near the central Italian city of Viterbo when
he apparently lost his balance and fell eight metres into a
precipice, Italian news agency ANSA reported.

ANSA quoted local police as saying the man died instantly,
still clutching the tricolore.

I'd rathar you take the orange trend a step ahead.Let's say,baseball caps or even rubber bracelets for the ones in Dishdashas.Because,they really look horrible with these little cheap polyester scarves.I even published a picture in my blog with Bu Abdulaziz wearing it.
